This beach is in the center of town, so don't expect seclusion, but there's easy parking, restaurants nearby and the beach is long and flat. This is a perfect spot for someone who doesn't want to hike in, or a family with youngsters.

I live in Cambria and try to walk about 3 miles/day - this is one of my favorite walks (the other being the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve). There's a boardwalk that runs above the beach so you can watch birds, seals, surfers, and fellow walkers with their doggies. It's a beautiful beach for artists and tidepoolers as well,

A relaxing walk on Moonstone Beach is a common jaunt to escape Paso Heat, a quaint walk along the hotels and restaurants is quiet and relaxing!

There is a trail that runs along Moonstone Beach Drive, that overlooks the ocean. It is so breathtaking. On the opposite side of the street you can also find beautiful homes, excellent restaurant, and some artists shops. Definitely worth a stop!

We have stayed at the Best Western Moonstone Beach and we have stopped at the beach area while staying in San Simeon. We usually see seals here and enjoy walking along the beach.Very quiet and relaxing.
