“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Sand is powdery; views of the ocean are stunning. Lot's of people/dog watching. Parkin was surprising easy at 11:00 on a Sunday in January when the weather forecast was 85 degrees. Walk up Ocean for shopping & lunch (good for able bodied only).
Very nice & laid back.

“Sunsets at the Beach”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Never hesitate to run on the beach in the morning or do a photo op at sunset...an easy distance from anywhere in Carmel.

Reviewed January 8, 2014

A great place to catch the sunset with a bottle of wine. Plan early to get a parking spot. Clean restrooms available.

“Beautiful huge beach, fun.”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Best beach in area, parking difficult but worth the short walk from town. Great for walking. Views of Pebble Beach are spectacular.
