Charming homes along gorgeous beaches

This is well-worth a visit. The homes along Scenic Road are positively charming. One home is more special than the next. Don't miss this.

Scenic Road is the best! You can start walking from Ocean Avenue south or from the Mission towards the north. Lots to see, the best air to breath and the ocean views to experience. Watch the dogs as they are able to frolic loose on the beach. The sunsets can be spectacular!!

Carmel beach and scenic walk way are super doggie friendly. No leash beach and leash walkway are both full of beautiful canine babies walking their owners. Good job! Everyone is out in the fresh ocean air exercising their bodies and refreshing their minds, with their best friends. Yeah! 🤗🔆🌺👍

Don't miss walking on this trail/path along the ocean with interesting houses on the other side - gorgeous views . The path starts on the last road off Ocean Ave before you hit the beach and changes to a walkway. If you reach the beach at the end of Ocean Ave you have gone too far.

A walk along the beach can't help but make you enjoy the day. Watching the waves hit the beach and all the people and dogs having a great time is perfection.

Could not get enough from this scenic walk and took it multiple times while in Carmel. Try different times of the day to get the "complete" picture.

The entire California coast from top to bottom is covered with beautiful beaches. Some are more accessible than others. This Carmel beach allowed dogs to be off leash and some small children were nearly knocked down by racing dogs. Also dog litter might have been a problem, but I did not walk barefoot.
