“Sweet quiet beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Lots of steps, but that keeps them quiet. China cove had seals laying right out on the beach! Gibson Beach was a beautiful little beach - we took off our shoes and waded into the surf, even though it was freezing.

“Beauty and Peace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We entered through Pt Lobos State Park and hiked the trail. If you love beautiful trails which are easy to medium hiking you will love these. Stretches of ocean, sea otters, trees, that are unique to Monterey. Don't miss it.
