Skirted with protected areas, Monterey Bay teems with wildlife, including otters, seals, dolphins and whales. Areas around the bay are protected marine lands with dynamic ecosystems that you can explore on foot. Consider enjoying the bay's crisp waters on one of the beaches hugging the coastline or visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A drive along the coastal road is another way to see the area that provides views and plenty of opportunities to pull off for photos.
