  • Carmel beach is one of the famous beach in the Pacific Ocean in between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Enjoyed the cool breeze, white sand, blue ocean etc. Beach is clean and dogs are allowed.

  • The scenic drive and the beach were excellent. There is a Frank Lloyd Wright house on the beach which was neat to see. The beach is clean and great!

  • I love this beach. Water is so clean 🫧 very big coast line.. I enjoyed walking around the beach.
  • Excellent beach πŸ– with scenic views!! Lots of people were hanging out with their pets & few were surfing πŸ„β€β™‚οΈ too! Really enjoyed this beach.
  • Was there right at sunset, beautiful! Parking was full, but we got lucky with a spot right next to sand.
  • Such a beautiful, clean, and scenic beach... especially on sunny days! Plenty of people swimming (despite the water temps), sunbathing, hanging out, and walking dogs. There are even a couple beach volleyball courts. Parking can be a challenge on weekends so best to find a spot up the hill a bit, on the street. The public bathroom at the entrance to the beach is convenient and we'll kept too.
  • This is an awesome stretch of beach right off Hwy 1 and it was not busy at all. There's a good amount of parking along the hwy. The water is crystal clear too. The sand is course making it hard to walk on because you sink right in it. There are rocks on one side so we explored them and found a purple shoreline crab and hermit crabs. Always fun to catch and release. We spent a few hours hanging out here before heading to Vivolo for dinner. It was fun to watch Wedgewood Events set up an all white wedding ceremony right on the beach. Cheers to whoever the happy couple were on Thursday 07/07.
