I love this beach in general during off season. I enjoy it more and appreciate how gorgeous it is. There are tons to do at this beach and its surrounding area if you are keen to walk, to run or to check out the tide pools.

We were just here the first weekend in February of 2016. It was sunny an warm. I was able to walk the boardwalk with just... More

Moonstone Beach has amazingly beautiful beaches, shells and stones to collect and admire each day and it is all we need each time we visit.

On a visit, we usually walk the "boardwalk" a couple of times, just to take in the view and breathe the ocean air. Path maintained. Always like greeting the other folks who walk the path.

This place is classic and timeless. There is a wonderful boardwalk, which is handicap accessible, that goes along the bluff for about 2 miles. The beach is easily accessible and has tide pools and a wonderful sandy beach. Sunsets here are amazing and each night the area is packed with people taking photos- tourists and locals alike.

This area has a nice boardwalk so if you do not want to go on the beach you can still stroll and get different views of the scenery.
