“A safe place to park, walk on the beach, and dine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is a beach where one can feel safe parking their car and walking on the beach. Up on the cliff is a restaurant with a lovely view, one might enjoy a glass of wine and maybe an snack. The main dinner was not that impressive to me, but maybe I hit the Moonstone Grill on a bad night. The fish was underdone, the brussel sprouts were not cooked enough, but the view was spectacular. Maybe I chose the wrong thing on the menu, but I sure like to walk on this beach if I want my car not to be broken into like some beaches where you park and walk.

“Pristine beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We loved the beach. It is one of those unspoilt, california places. The sunset was spectacular. It has easy access, it is close to the main roads, there is an eating place close by if you feel like, or you can picnic. Good for kids, dogs. The best way to enjoy is either walking or
explore the tidal pools. We went there in the morning and then went back to watch the sunset.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

My husband and I were married here in June '12. Moonstone is such an incredible place that offers easy access to either side of the beach. Dog friendly. Make sure if you are coming on a saturday to be mindful of weddings. The beach house can be rented for events and parties ask that you be respectful of their events.

“Great for kids and dogs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is a popular place to bring your kids and dogs to the beach. All the loose dogs can be a drag if you are trying to picnic on the beach.

“Beautiful spot on the Pacific Northwest coast:”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

I went there in the early evening during a clearing summer rainstorm. The picutres I got were excellent! It is a beautiful and very relaxing place located just a very short way from highway 101.
