“Beautiful sunset views from here!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

On a particularly cold December late afternoon, swimming is not an option. The sunset was magnificent though, just a few steps a away from our hotel down at a very calm, unexploited sandy beach! Loved it!

“Great tidepools and boardwalk”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Great wooden boardwalk above the beach; you can walk for at least a mile. Stairs down to the sand where there are tidepools. Saw sea stars, anemones, and hermit crabs. Lots of shiny, colored pebbles that are fun to sort through looking for moonstones (if there really are any). Beach area is suitable for small children. A beautiful place to spend 2-3 hours.

“Have always wanted to visit”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

And we did during Thanksgiving. It is just so calming, great air, pine, sage, and beautiful ocean views. Very convenient to Cambria and Paso Robles and the many wineries.

Paradise. Lots to do. Beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. Surfing, kayaking, bird watching, great walk on the boardwalk & can take your dog. Can see seals, dolphin, whales, sea otters. Cycling is great in this area.

“Just Beautiful!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Moonstone Beach is just a gorgeous little beach! The timber walkway the whole length of the beach is a great thing for people wanting to go for a walk or walk their dogs, it was even convenient for elderly people to walk as it is flat and one level. The beach itself is small and pretty, the sun setting over it was just a stunning sight to see. It is a really beautiful little area!
