I love coming to Monterey Bay. It is filled with wildlife. Sea Lions, sea otters, sea Birds. Gorgeous blue waters. The scenery is gorgeous. Rocky cliffs along the Bay. Great walking trails and bike trails. The area also has great hotels and restaurants. Make sure to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17 mile drive, pacific grove, Carmel and point lobos state park for a great hike along the ocean cliffs

Wonderful shops and restaurants at Cannery Row, had the best clam chowder at Louie Linguini's. I've always loved watching the waves of the the Pacific Ocean.

Monterey Bay is one of the best protected bays on the coast. It is full of history and diversity. It is packed full of whales, White Sharks, sea lions, and many more cool creatures. The fishing is great. The sea is rougher past the point, but is often glassy in the bay and kelp beds.

Great town on Rte 1 to break your drive and spend couple of days. We did a whale watching tour with Randy's and loved the humpbacks. Enjoyed old Fisherman's wharf, cannery row and monterey bay trail.

Monterrey Bay has been one of my favorite places since childhood.
Great scuba diving, seafood, whale watching, beach combing, tide pools, the Aquarium..... and cheaper to stay and enjoy than the Central California coast. Much better value for money.
I highly recommend Monterrey Bay for a Romantic or Family holiday.
