This beach will stay in our memories for a long time. We walked down after breakfast and stayed for hours, watching dolphins playing in the surf. Amazing.

This was a picturesque beach, surfers, dog walkers in the early morning mist. Would love to have seen it in the sunshine but when we were there August the weather wasn't great.

Carmel State Beach is a beautiful beach with white sand. If you get there early in the morning you can be the first to place your footprints on this silky sand. Located in a cove on Carmelo St. from Highway 1 S. or Scenic Dr. in Carmel. It is one of the loveliest beaches in California. Well kept and pristine waters. A great place for weddings. A great view of Pt. Lobos and also Pebble Beach. The locals are friendly and seem to tolerate the traffic in their hidden world. Respect is due where respect is given.

Never crowded, white sand and so quiet. A must go for everyone in the area. Really a beautiful place.
