Moonstone Beach Dr, Cambria

(4.8/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • There is a great board walking path as you can see in the picture. It goes a long ways along the Moonstone Drive. Beautiful site, and sunsets from here! 
  • I think it is amazing and wonderful to have such a long and safe walking path right on the water. For walking enthusiasts you can walk as long as you want to. If you have any walking challenges like I...  more »
