Asilomar beach is right out the "back door" of Asilomar Conference Ground, a great place to stay BTW. The beach has lots of sand, a boardwalk that runs the length of the beach and the Spanish Bay golf course. You can even take the boardwalk up to the Inn and eat at "Sticks" restaurant. Go around 5 and you'll get a real treat:a bagpiper playing on the first tee.
If you are a dog owner, part of the beach is where dogs are allowed to run off leash. It's fun to watch them frolic in the waves and chase each other. The beach is also popular with surfers at times, though the waves can be treacherous. Whales can sometimes be spotted spouting as well.
A short walk up HWy. 68 is another good restaurant, the Fishwife.
All in all, the beach one of Pacific Grove's many treasures.
