Point Lobos State Natural Reserve
Great hiking destination for all fitness levels. Park on HWY 1 and walk in or pay the day use fee and drive into Point Lobos Reserve. Hike in the morning and pack a picnic and let the kids play at Monestory or Carmel River State Beaches close by.
Scenic coastal area features a variety of sea animals & wildlife, hiking, diving & a whaling museum.
China Cove, located in the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, is alone worth the trip. Stunningly beautiful. The reserve also boasts some easy walking trails surrounded by breathtaking views.
Plenty of trail options whether you're looking for a casual morning walk or full-day hike.
This area of Monterey California includes Big Sur is one of the most beautiful places in the world and Point Lobos is no exception. Truthfully this is what I consider a taste of Big Sur without the hour drive. You'll find nature at its finest natural forests that kiss breathtaking seascapes. Tip:…
“Iconic Carmel Beach can be accessed from Treetops by walking directly west on Ocean to the beach. There is no end to the scenery: the majestic Pacific Ocean, surfers catching a ride on the waves, dolphins and otters swimming about, dogs frolicking off-leash, the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright house and rugged Carmel Point to the south, and golfers tackling Pebble Beach Golf Links to the north. Incomparable evening sunsets spark uncontainable beauty every direction you look.”
“World famous aquarium with stunning visual aquatic masterpieces and hands on experiences ”
“This quintessential bistro and relaxed neighborhood spot in the heart of charming Carmel-by-the-Sea. The quirky corner space offers petite but comfortable wooden chairs and tables, set beneath hanging copper pots and, of course, a bicycle or two. First and foremost, the kitchen focuses on comforting seasonal cuisine with a California-Mediterranean slant, plus a handful of pizzas and fantastic breads fired in their wood-burning oven. At the same time, they are dedicated to beloved French classics.”
“Located 15 min from Treetops, Garland Ranch Regional Park in Carmel Valley is a popular spot for leisure hiking. Breathtaking views lie around every corner of this 4,462-acre park, with trails varying from easy to strenuous. Notable features at Garland Ranch Regional Park include the Carmel River, Garzas Creek, a redwood canyon and a charming waterfall. Historic buildings dot Garland Ranch Regional Park, allowing visitors to experience Carmel Valley as it once was.”
“Probably the best restaurant in P.G. Specializes in great sustainable seafood. Best wine list on the Peninsula with extremely reasonable prices. Right around the corner at 701 Lighthouse. Occasional celebrity sightings, particularly during car week or Pebble Beach Pro Am. Reservations recommended.”
