“A wonderful walk, no matter what time of day or whatever the weather.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We love walking along here on the way to the Aquarium from our B&B in Pacific Grove. Even the kids don't mind. It's almost a preview to the Aquarium as you see the seals relax on the rocks & sand just south of the Aquarium. The houses overlooking this area are charming. It all seems 100 miles away from the hubbub of Cannery Row only a few blocks away.

“Fabulous views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Loved this walk!!!! Especially early in the morning or late in the day. Bring some good music on your Ipod and your camera. Problem is, the camera will slow you down. I couldn't stop shooting photos. I just wanted to be able to capture the beauty to take home with me. Around every corner the scenery gets better and better. It was my favorite thing to do from Monterey and it had no cost !
wish I had time to go back and bike it!

“Nice ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This is the boulevard that you will travel down once you leave Monterey and are heading in to Pacific Grove along the water's edge. Beautiful scenery, lovely houses, what more could you ask for?

“Million dollar views and scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Beautiful places to walk and or ride a bike. It's also a beautiful place to take photos or paint a picture. The scenery is stunning. They have a few beaches but I imagine that you'd need a dry suit to swim or dive here because the water is frigid. It could be California June gloom but I think it's kinda foggy here.

“A beautiful walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

I'm learning to appreciate spectacular walks in this area, and this one is not to be missed. Connecting Lovers' Point with the Point Pinos Lighthouse, this 2 mile or so walk contains beautiful views of the bay as well as the flora and fauna that call it home. It's not strenuous so take your time. The lighthouse at the end is worth a visit, too.
