“Gorgeous!! Romantic!!!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We drove past this quite a few times during our stay!! It's such a quaint spot and we saw 3 people getting married there. Our last day of vacation we took in a spot right on the beach which had free parking and bathrooms. It also had a small snack place that you could order food and rent bikes. Very quiet and beautiful!!!!

“Little Beach”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is where the walking/bike path ends. A very nice little park with lots of cute squirrels that will eat out of your hand. Nice beach to have a little picnic on also. I would love to come back and ride down the trail to this beach.

“Better than West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Each time we return to the area, a walk along Lover's Point is mandatory. This ocean front gravel path extends for miles south or west from Lover's Point Park (which offers bathrooms). It also extends north or east all the way to Monterey's famous Aquarium. This is flat out a great place to walk, and the traffic is much lower than West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz. No bikes are allowed on the path, increasing safety and enjoyment.

Bring a camera because there's always wildlife -- seals, birds like cormorants and gulls, Monarch butterflies (at times, in great abundance), squirrels etc. -- within a few feet. The flora is also interesting (although it could sure use some attention from groundskeepers).

“OK to Miss”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Not really much to see here. There are better places along the coast to stop and watch the waves and enjoy the scenery. This is close to the main shopping area and should not be a highlight of your tip to this beautiful bay area.

“Nice, safe beach for kids”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

There are a lot of great beaches but with rough waves in the Monterey area. This is one of the few nice, safe and quiet beaches where kids can have fun. There is a small rock on the beach which kids can climb and be surrounded by water when the waves roll in. It is a small beach but a great place for young kids.
