Point Lobos

Watch whales in winter and sea lions all year round at this Bay Area nature reserve, which offers hiking, walking, bird watching, scuba diving and magnificent views.

Reviewed By Michael J - Manhattan Beach, California

Gorgeous coastline, lots of harbor seals, otters and birds. Hiking trails both along the rocky and dramatic shore and through quiet, lush woodlands just a few hundred yards away. Easy to walk most of the park in three hours of moderate hiking. Best to arrive early before the crowds. I come here every time I am in Carmel; it is inspirational.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

Located at the ocean's edge, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a window to marine life -- for dive masters and non-swimmers alike. It's home to sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies and thousands of other marine animals and plants. Its mission is to inspire conservation of the oceans.

Reviewed By DERTUR - Annandale, Virginia

We go to every aquarium we can find. Monteray Bay has the most fascinating exhibits for educational purposes. I found them being operated by adults as well as young people. Very clever items added to each exhibit (like mechanical octopus displays/dioramas in the live octopus area) made them more unique. Of course the otters steal the show and the videos on the otters and on their research arm were short but really well put together.

Pacific Grove Oceanview Boulevard

Reviewed By Lions A

I fell in love with the entire shoreline from Lovers Point Beach onward. Be sure to see Asilomar beach and the Tide Pools thete. Also the Marine Preserve. This is so worth while . Best to go when there is minus tide . One can find the timetables for the tide pools online. The water is so blue blue with gushing waves like you see in the movies . It is a must see for nature lovers and especially for someine who does not like to or cant hike. And it also is free.

Since 1919, the exquisite beauty and unique challenges of Pebble Beach Golf Links have electrified golfers and spectators alike. Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the course hugs California’s rugged coastline, providing wide-open vistas, cliff-side fairways and sloping greens. Over the years, Pebble Beach Golf Links has been the site of golf’s most prestigious tournaments such as the annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and five U.S. Open Championships, including the 2010 U.S. Open. We are excited and honored to welcome back the U.S. Open to Pebble Beach for the sixth time in 2019!

Asilomar State Beach

The name of this State Beach means "a refuge by the sea," which describes the breathtaking views of forest, surf and sand on more than 105 secluded acres of scenic forest and sand dunes.

Reviewed By SeattleMeadowlark - Seattle

This is a wonderful beach for beach combing and tide pooling, but the fact that every dog owner in the city ignores the Leash laws makes it hard to give it a good rating. There is one man, a guy with a black German Shepherd, who I was told by a park ranger routinely disobeys the leash law. His dog runs loose and chases the surf birds...and mind you, the birds are protected by law. And the man watched his dog poop on the beach and walked off. Please, enjoy the beach and pick up your dog's poop and take it OFF the beach and into the numerous trash cans on the road.

Spyglass Hill Golf Course

Stretching 6,859 yards at par 72, this Robert Trent Jones, Sr. layout is a demanding and rigorous course requiring acute skill and length from the back tees.

Reviewed By yachti - Ontario Keep it Beautiful

This was actually my favorite of the Areas course (Yes - better than Pebble) as I found it to be harder, more picturesque and a more `complete`course all around. Beautiful traditional Pro Shop and practice facility, great putting green and a golf course that was in such amazing condition that it looked like astro-turf! Greens rolled true, the bunkers were excellent and the views were spectacular. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating and overall this was the experience that I was looking for in the Pebble Beach area. THANKS for this !!!

Scenic Road Walkway

Reviewed By Bev K - Carmel Valley

Having lived in Carmel Valley for many years, I've walked all over the peninsula. My favorite walk is along Scenic, past River Beach and then along any number of streets back to Carmel Beach. Where there is a million dollar restroom... Not really gorgeous, but at least there are two rooms.The surf along both beaches is beautiful, sometimes 17 feet high, sometimes just a quiet lapping. Shore birds and marine mammals are always there. Occasionally there are whales in the water between Scenic and Pt. Lobos. There are always plenty of other walkers to smile at and dogs to pet. Go onto the beaches at both places to walk in the water or along the white sand beaches. Carmel Beach allows dogs to go off leash which makes them so happy. If you still have energy, you can walk up Ocean to a coffee shop or cafe for food or a glass of wine. There are currently 19 wine tasting shops; locals feel it would be nice to have fewer. But you might want to visit one. A treat is to drink a glass of wine and watch the sunset or take some snacks down, sit on a bench and people/dog watch. It's also my Cocker Spaniel's favorite beach.

The Links at Spanish Bay

One of America's leading Scottish-style links golf courses features rolling fairways, white sand dunes and a bagpipe performance that signals the end of each day.

Reviewed By lanzie99 - Long Beach, California

When it is cart path only be prepared to walk twice as much. The views were beautiful but the course is very challenging. Shot a high round there, found too many sand traps. Took many pictures, deer walking around the course very leisurely. Had some rain, so it wasn’t our favorite round of the entire trip. Staff was wonderful and we started right on time.

The water is brisk and the surf is hazardous, but the amazing views from the shore will draw you like a magnet to these striking white sand beaches for a leisurely stroll or picnic.
