Beautiful Beach

I purposely came here during sunset, the view is very beautiful and relaxing over here. The beach is also very clean.

A small stretch of sand in a small protected cove. Lots of divers will take their first free dive from here!! Lots of families use this too. The grounds are much improved in the last couple years. It's also fairly clean for a seaside park.

We stayed just across the street from this little gem of a park. Great views and some otters and such to see. Lots of folks going by joggers, swimmers, scuba and just folks looking around. The Beach House Restaurant is right there with a good view of the area. We didn't try eating there so I can't comment on that.

This park is right on the ocean just above two beaches. The park has picnic tables and BBQ's and large lawn areas. There are also public restrooms. Just down some steps are two great beaches. You get views of the Monterey Bay/Monterey and on a clear day Santa Cruz. The park is just a few blocks down from downtown Pacific... More

This park provides you glorious views of rugged coast. It has also access to a sandy beach, but not suitable for swimming. This park also can be starting point of coastal trail.

Locals and visitors alike are always charmed by the views and wonderful walking paths along Lovers Point. On weekends it can become quite hectic, with many large families having gatherings at the picnic table areas. If you want a quieter visit, come mid-week. There are restrooms and it is an easy walk back up in to Pacific Grove to go... More

This area is so nice! The park hosts lots of seagulls. In the spring the ice plant makes a beautiful carpet of purple along the coastal area too. Make sure to take it all in when you visit!

Every year we like to visit Monterey's Lover's point park. Along the ocean side. you can walk all the way and enjoy the outstanding housing on your left side and beautiful, stunning spring flower with the ocean view on your right side. Recommend walk early morning or in the evening.

This little park is wonderful for children and adults alike. The beach is shallow and safe to play in the wet sand, it's surrounded by walls so kids can't run off, there is a food stand at the top and a small play area for toddlers. On the street level there is a walk back to the wharf that is... More
