    Rocky Ridge & Soberanes Canyon Trails

    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

    3 reviews

    Monastary Beach

    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 ...
