    Nice trails with high overviews. Cool little whale museum staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. Lots of photo ops.

    Beautiful beach for a nice walk ! Such a great area to explore with amazing flocks of sea birds overhead and wading in the river.

    It is a nice experience. If you have a car, you have to do it. Be prepared to stop to take pictures.

    This was our favorite stop along the Highway 1 portion that we drove. We were able to get down to the water. The views, waves, rocks, and flowered hills were awesome! Parking is along the road, and a path leads down to the beach. It was clean and not crowded. There was no swimming, so it's perfect to just enjoy the quiet, pristine ocean atmosphere without tons of people with beach towels and umbrellas.

    Gorgeous little town. Wonderful views on the beach and lovely walks arround the town. Not much else to do. Surprises by limited offer of shopping and restaurants. One day is largely enough

    Love to relax in their courtyard, see the altar, shop in their gift shop. Even though there is some construction going on, it's worth the time.

    I loved my wine tasting experience here! The tasting room is very intimate and cozy with a variety of seating options. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Their wines are very nice, and their bubbly was also great and a pleasant surprise. I got one bottle to take home and could have easily gotten more had I not had to worry about room in my suitcase. Check ahead for reservations!

    We made a return visit to Sunset Cultural Center. This is a good place in Carmel to se a show or concert. This is also an art center there.
