“Great Ocean Views and Beach”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This was a great place to feel the ocean. No crowds to distract your experience during the week anyway.

“Lovers Point Park Visit”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This park is located 1 mile south of the Monterey Aquarium on the coast drive in Pacific Grove. It is very popular, well managed and attractive. Large rocks on the bay side give kids a chance to explore. There is a small sandy beach nearby and there are kayaks for hire but the majority of the beach is rocky. A walking path connects the area with Monterey.

“Pretty park - but watch out for the wildlife”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We visited on a stunning day and really enjoyed walking the point. When we first saw a squirrel we thought it was cute - but when we were almost swarmed by them they became more like rats underfoot. DON'T encourage or feed them.

“Nice park with quiet beach for kids”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a nice little park with a small, quiet beach with small waves. There is space to laze around in the park or to have fun at the beach. However it can get crowded easily as it is a relatively small area and the restrooms are not all that clean.

“Beautiful but for the smell of urine”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

The views are beautiful but several areas smelled of urine. There is a bathroom but I have no idea what shape it is in. A few teenagers hanging about on the rocks directly in the most obvious path one would take to get further out onto the rocks trying to look intimidating with their piercings, tattoos and liquor - poor babies. Otherwise, a pleasant place for an evening stroll.
