Lovely place to walk after a day's driving. Was relaxing and enjoyable looking for moonstones, and we found quite a few. It was early May so still cool, so can't comment on what it would be like for swimming.

A special slice of the coastline in beautiful Cambria. Great walking path for dogs and people with a full view of the coastline.

We clocked 14000 steps along the beach and board walk. We collected many beautiful pebbles and a real moon stone. The fresh air and surf were bracing. We worked up appetites and went to Cambrita's for dinner. Watching the sunset from the board walk was...More

We were not sure of the distance but we know both walkers and runners can use the pathway. Incredible views of the ocean.

Fun spot with lots of driftwood on the beach to build things with. A wide strip of easily accessible beach to explore.

This is a wonderful boardwalk with beach access stairs along the way. Keep your eye out for all the Cottontails that run along the boardwalk. Very different to see Cottontails so close to the ocean. A very peaceful spot along the coast of California.

Drive south on Hwy. 1 towards Cambria about 6 miles. Take Moonstone Dr. exit to right, drive along the ocean and Moonstone Beach.

I believe it would be wheel chair accesible, especially if you had someone to assist in getting from a paved parking site over to the boardwalk, a few feet, but uneven ground. The boardwalk is a bit bumpy, but probably... More
