We stayed across the street at a great B&B. Each morning we would grab a cup of coffee and walk over to see the sunrise. It was a wonderful way to begin the day.

Free to the public, great (free) parking on the street and plenty of room to walk, make cairns, pull out your easel and paint or just plain people-watch. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it. It's easy to kick your shoes off...More

Good food and service. Easy location and nice window seat. Nice atmosphere and reasonable prices for the area. Clam chowder was not the best I've had but good. Salmon was great!

This is a lovely park in Pacific Grove near restaurants and the bike/ walking path into Monterey. Good parking though an easy walk from Centrella Inn

Two very small beaches below a park with beautiful cypress trees. The beaches were very quite with maybe two other couples on them

Lover's Point is known for a carpet of stunning, bright pink ice plant. I did a little research and learned that it blooms between early April through the end of May.

I was just there this week end. I really don't know about taking a BBQ onto the beach but the nice park just steps up from the beach has built in BBQ's. The park has great ocean views and is just steps from the beach.

Not sure whether this is regarding Lover's Point but if it is, it's a public area so accessible to the Public, 24/7.
