Moonstone Beach Dr, Cambria
(4.8/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Drive along Moonstone Beach Dr and make your way down the coastline surrounded by sand dunes, beachfront homes, and sweeping ocean views. Running right next to Highway 1, the route represents a more scenic alternative, bringing you closer to the sea itself and allowing you to drive at a slower pace. Stop along your way to wander the numerous stretches of boardwalk throughout the area and take in the sandy cliffs and trees that form the landscape around you. Keep your eyes peeled and you may even get to view a colony of seals snoozing on the beach. Put Moonstone Beach Dr and other Cambria attractions into our Cambria vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Turned off the 1-th the road towards the beach, because we wanted to understand what "Moonstone" here. Stone was not found, but close to the coast passed. Almost no time lost, and got positive emotions.
