“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

The beach is pretty big for this area. Surfers are there when waves are good. Nice place to go sea kayaking.

“Beautiful Beach Area”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Asilomar State Beach is one of the prettiest beach areas around Monterey Peninsual area (in my humble opinion). It is scenic and fun to watch the ocean from there.

We have stayed at Asilomar and walked to the beach and it is so pleasant to do. We have also driven to Asilomar. It is so beautiful to drive along the ocean from Monterey to Asilomar Beach area. Its an ocean front drive all the way with stunning views.

We have also attended a wedding at Asilomar and fortune for the couple it was a pleasant sunny day there.

“Great Sunset Watching!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

This place never gets old or ceases to amaze. It is so beautiful and we love to gather with all the others to see the sunset. One of the most gorgeous places to walk!

“Peace”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We stayed at Asilomar and opted for an original Julia Morgan room. It was tiny and dark, but clean and charming. It had windows that opened (a plus), squirrels, birds, and beautiful oaks and pines. Strolling the grounds was great, the bon fire at night was great, and sitting in the huge lodge in front of the gigantic fireplace (in craftsman rocking chairs) made you want to sip tea (OR?) and read. We'll go back again and again.
