A beautiful beach in a beautiful city. Soft sand, gorgeous sunsets, pebble beach to the north and point lobos reserve to the south. But, probably the most unique thing about Carmel beach are the dogs that run free like the wind. I don't think I will ever have a dog that doesn't get to visit Carmel beach at least once in it's life.

Beautiful beach and views. We sat on the beach and just relaxed watching the the waves and taking in the view. The town is really cute with plenty of shops and places to eat. The hill from the shops to the beach is steep, so it could be tiring going up, but well worth the time. This time of year there was parking.

A long, soft sand beach with spectacular views. A walk back along the bluff makes a nice round-trip.

This is the most fantastic beach; it was great to walk in bare feet on the warm, white sand with the ocean crashing to shore. The lagoon along the front is also great. We went back in the evening to watch the sunset.
