A nice little spot to sit and look out over the Monterey Bay. Very popular strolling place along the strand with a very small protected beach / play area especially loved by kids.

It's like a postcard - fantastic views of the ocean and Monterey. Avoid summer weekends, tour buses stop here and there are way too many people for my taste.

Beautiful sandy beach with large rocks around it. Very popular beach for lovers to go walking on a romantic sunset stroll or kids to run around in whilst parents walk their dogs. Very pretty and easily accessible.

My husband and I enjoyed walking down from our B&B in Pacific Grove to Lovers Point. The view was beautiful and we ended up renting a surrey from the bike shop and riding all the way to the Monterrey wharf and back - about an hour round trip. People watching was fun. The scenery along the coast was very pretty... More

Beautiful views, rocks to climb, park with benches to sit in or grass to sit on. Squirrels everywhere and they must get fed because they were not the least bit scared of us. Definitely a lovely spot to stop off at. We went in the morning and by the time we left (around 9am) the parking lot went from 3... More

The point was named over a hundred years ago by Methodists settlers who were lovers of God: hence the name Lovers Park. The park is located... More

Fantastic views with hiking and bike trails. A majestic place. Kayaks available nearby. Plenty of photo opps and perhaps a sea otter swimming by!
