The lucky folks that live here in Carmel probably have ties to the Hippy days, when property was a lot cheaper than it is now. The walk is strong, with a sense of the sea up your nostrils and in your step. You will light hearted, young and want to grow your hair long, wear cheescloth skirts and listen to a guitar being played by around a beach fire. Flat, good walk to stretch the legs, lots of dogs, clean, light traffick. Pick a spot to watch the sun go down.

Traffic has to go very slowly so no problems there and at every turn a new view, it could hardly be better.

Beautiful views, beautifully landscaped surroundings. Look for the fairy tale cottages nearby when you are done walking on the beach.

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

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.
