Serenity is a word that comes to mind when walking in Cambria. Moonstone Beach is pretty much paradise. You walk the boardwalk which is truly a boardwalk and then get to the landing. It’s pretty much one and the same thing but just know it...More

One of the most relaxing, gorgeous, serene, extremely beautiful places in California. I also enjoyed Morro Bay, Half Moon Bay and the Bay area. I have lived in California for many, many, many years and have worked in San Luis as well. perfection :)
