“Pacific Grove Rocks”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Monterey Peninsula has many cities with their own distinct atmosphere. People visit Monterey for the history, Pebble Beach for it's golf, and Carmel-by-the-Sea for Clint Eastwood. Many people skip Pacific Grove, don't be one of them. PG has many fine restaurants, shopping and beautiful views of the bay. Monday they have a Farmers Market, and if you are here during strawberry season, lucky you. Not the best place in PG to see sea otters, but you can see plenty if you walk down the coastal trail that goes through Lover's Point. No matter what time of year it is, and no matter how nice the weather seems, always keep a jacket within arm's length. The weather here is quite fickle.

“excellent views.. don't forget your camera!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Lover's point is small area on ocean view boulevard .. but has beautiful views of the sea. Ha a small park, restrooms and great places to click away. The sea is a serene blue and the water is cold!!! very romantic... can easily spend a hour here. Be careful around the rocks though..they are quite sharp. There is a short stairway that leads to a small beach. Do visit that too. We managed to find a very helpful man willing to take pictures of us. he also suggested good angles and locations for us to pose. :)

“Great for kids, weddings, and strolling.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

There is a nice sheltered beach here for little kids, a snack bar, bathrooms, and spacious well-tended lawns for running around on that my kids and their friends made use of for a football game. People are getting married here left and right, and it's also a good spot to watch pelicans and other wildlife pass by. Decent amount of parking but traffic is pretty busy on this stretch of Ocean View Drive.

“Great place for a picnic”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

It's a great place for a picnic or just a romantic walk. My wife and I sat here just before the sunset. It was beautiful.
