“Every view a photo, every step a word.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The lucky folks that live here in Carmel probably have ties to the Hippy days, when property was a lot cheaper than it is now. The walk is strong, with a sense of the sea up your nostrils and in your step. You will light hearted, young and want to grow your hair long, wear cheescloth skirts and listen to a guitar being played by around a beach fire. Flat, good walk to stretch the legs, lots of dogs, clean, light traffick. Pick a spot to watch the sun go down.

“Exercise with views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Traffic has to go very slowly so no problems there and at every turn a new view, it could hardly be better.

“Great morning walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Beautiful views, beautifully landscaped surroundings. Look for the fairy tale cottages nearby when you are done walking on the beach.

“Truly a scenic walk along the ocean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

If you have time to just stroll along the walkway above the Pacific ocean, this is the place to do it. Very enjoyable.

“Magnificent scenery that is also handicap accessible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Finding a place to park can be challenging but there are a few handicap spots. Weekdays are always easier for parking and fewer people. This walkway offers scenery of one of the most beautiful spots. Photos are absolutely required. It is enjoyable for those who can't use the stairs to the beach. Excellent views the entire walk.
