The Carmel City Beach and the Carmel River Beach are two of the most scenic beaches in this area.  The pristine white sandy beach at Carmel is a nice place for a picnic, to fly a kite or catch the waves on a surf or boogey-board.  The Carmel River Beach is also beautiful and a nice place to stretch out on a blanket and read or just enjoy walking along the water’s edge.  These are two places not-to-miss  while visiting the Carmel area.
