    Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

    Point Lobos, Carmel, CA 93923
    42 reviews

    The most beautiful hike in California. 10 Miles of trails along the coastline. I though I would be bored by the similar scene in a few miles. I couldn't be more wrong. All the beaches and coves are different. Some sandy, some rocky. The ocean comes in various shades of color from turquoise to cobalt to sapphire. The trail itself ...

    Carmel River State Beach

    Carmel, CA
    16 reviews

    Carmel Beach is nice. Carmel River State Beach is nicer. It is much less crowded, great surf, great views and a walking trail that parallels the vast expanse of beach that provides a convenient way to return to the small parking lot after walking a mile or more through the sand.

    Carmel Mission

    3080 Rio Road, Carmel-by-The-Sea, CA 93923
    12 reviews

    One of my travel goals is to visit each of the California missions. While some of the other missions have a more fascinating history or architecture (or both), Carmel is no slouch. Plus, it's a few minutes away from downtown Carmel. The best part of this mission is the extensive museum documenting the history of the California missions. Plus, the ...

    Garrapata SP is one of my favorite places to go hiking. With breathtaking views of the ocean to the redwood trees to the stream along our trail. Luckily the weather was on our side that day. Cool breeze which made it perfect for our challenging hike. Make sure to wear your hiking shoes or some kind of shoes with good ...

    Carmel Beach City Park

    Pebble Beach, CA
    8 reviews

    On a sunny day this place is beautful. On an overcast day, this place can be breath taking. Either which way, it's a pain to find parking and a bigger pain to tumble down the steep incline to get to the water and more so when climbing back up. But theres no beating that fresh ocean air! ;D

    Rocky Ridge & Soberanes Canyon Trails

    Hwy 1 Carmel, CA 93923, USA
    3 reviews

    Absolutely amazing hike. Takes you up the mountain with breathtaking views of the coast south of Carmel. We saw tons of whales while we were hiking, and were fortunate enough to see a California condor hanging out on a rock perch just off the trail. It's pretty steep on the way up - so wear good shoes. The trailhead is ...

    Carmel Art & Film Festival

    Carmel Plz, Carmel, CA, United States
    3 reviews

    Clint Eastwood's annual art & film festival in Carmel is a low-key event every year, with lots of feature length and short films showing. We went to a screening of 5 shorts, which also featured a post-screening Q&A with some of the filmmakers in attendance. It was a great event, in a small environment and made for a great screening ...

    Monastary Beach

    27686-27746 Cabrillo Highway, Carmel, CA
    1 review

    This is not a normal beach. This beach is primarily for SCUBA diving. I say this not to imply that the divers are possessive of it, but as a warning that it is a very unsafe beach for casual passersby to stop and try to swim in. The beautiful large grain sand beach is visible from highway 1, and tired ...

The theater sits amongst tall Monterey pines, with the moon and stars as a canopy, with the amphitheater seats facing a fairly large stage. It is a rustic, woodsy setting, with two firepits ...
