5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

If you have time to just stroll along the walkway above the Pacific ocean, this is the place to do it. Very enjoyable.

“Magnificent scenery that is also handicap accessible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Finding a place to park can be challenging but there are a few handicap spots. Weekdays are always easier for parking and fewer people. This walkway offers scenery of one of the most beautiful spots. Photos are absolutely required. It is enjoyable for those who can't use the stairs to the beach. Excellent views the entire walk.

“What a gorgeous walk/drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Scenic Drive is an excellent beach walk and / or drive of the most gorgeous homes and beach in Carmel. If it is to cold you can just sit in the car and watch the waves or Just drive by the most spectacular homes and yes you can easily spot the Frank Lloyd Wright Home that was in the movie "Summer Place" if you continue down the road there is another nice beach. Go even further and you will end up going past Clint Eastwoods Mission Ranch complete with sheep in the pasture. I have heard this is a good place for drinks on the deck. Continue on and you will go right past the Carmel Mission. Enjoy!!

“Relaxing beach walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The beach walk was two blocks from the Sandpiper Inn. We walked it at night after dinner. We walked it again before breakfast. Seeing townspeople enjoying their beach was a delight. We also enjoyed watching sandpipers getting their breakfast.

“A beautiful and flat walk along Carmel Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

A great place for a walk at any time, above the beach, along Scenic Drive, the sidewalk is well packed and solid, relatively flat and provides a good walk at whatever your preferred pace. Frequented by locals its a good place for people to meet up and enjoy one of the most beautiful coastlines.
