“Perfect bay destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Pacific Grove is the less well visited part of the Monterey Bay and perfect for families to climb rocks, pack a lunch and enjoy the scenery. We always take out of town visitors to this treasure of a site and have never had anything but yes! as a response. Continue your drive out to the coast for beautiful views of the Pacific , tidepooling and a great sandy beach looking across at Pebble Beach golf links. Bring your bicycles if you prefer to sightsee on two wheels.

“Lover's Point - Spectacular setting on Monterey Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Located in Pacific Grove overlooking Monterey Bay. A small park with benches and public bathrooms (even with hand soap!) right on the bay. Rocks and outcroppings allow an up close view of the water. Be careful and don't go too far out on the rocks. Of special note: Singer John Denver perished in an experimental plane crash a few hundred yards out in the bay from here in October, 1997.

“Great Sunrise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

A wonderful spot for first light filtering through the Cypress trees. Great spot for pictures and as a backdrop for pictures.

“Bring your camera!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

A great little park right on Monterey Bay. Lot's of bird and sea life. Bring a coat, just in case. If you aren't into picnicing, there is a great restaurant right next to Borg's.

“One of our favorite places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

My wife and I fell in love with this small park on the ocean a few years ago when we saw otters swimming on their backs just off the shore, and seals sunning themselves. Huge piles of rocks it's fun to climb and overlook the crashing waves. Delightful little park with a snack bar open at the usual times.
