Best park in Pacific Grove. It's free. Many people come here for the day. There's a grass area, tables, and a bbq, a few statues, and restaurants nearby. The view of the ocean is spectacular. There's direct beach access and large rocks to climb on both down at the beach and above at park level. The tidepools here are interesting... More

This is a small park, but absolutely beautiful on both sides. There is a nice bike path that leads to the park, a good restaurant and beach front eatery. Great photo spot. Keep driving and you end up in Pebble Beach with great views in between

Very cool low key stop. People just hangin out enjoying Cali's best. The views are world class. Los of sea life to take in. The area has both a grill and fine dining options as well. Parking can be a bit tight as the day wears on/

We loved playing on the small beach below the sea wall. Nice tidal pools with starfish and crabs. Lots of small shells first thing in the morning.

Lovers Point Park is a great place to spend a few hours enjoying the beach and the views. Low tide is great for walking around the rocks and exploring the tide pools. We spotted some seals, sea otters, and dolphin in the area. It's a great area to take photos of seascapes.

This is a beautiful place to just get a coffee, and wander around. Sit and watch the otters enjoying the surf. Very peaceful. If you have time and money, try the restaurants. If not, just the view is amazing.

This is a small park, beautiful ocean view, you can watch some people surfing. Very windy and cool. Make sure you bring a jacket, it gets cold in the afternoon and early morning hours. The view is beautiful, nice place for a stroll and the parking is free, we took some great photos here.
