Taking a walk on the wooden boardwalk is an excellent way to relax and enjoy the view. We love seeing the crashing waves. Staying at Cambria Landing on Moonstone Beach is our place to stay.

Very nice boardwalk along Moonstone drive to walk along the beach and watch the sunset. Very convenient if you are staying at one of the hotels along Moonstone, which I recommend.

Great views from the boardwalk. Across the street from our hotel. There are outlooks with seals and birds. The sunset from here is gorgeous

The boardwalk is easy to negotiate and you get a great view of the beach and surrounding area. It can get very windy, so bring a hat with an under the chin tie!

We could hop on the boardwalk right in front of our hotel. We enjoyed a leisurely afternoon stroll, enjoying the majestic views and taking in the surfers. One morning we saw a school of dolphins!

What a nice way to walk (or jog if you prefer) along the beach and see the ocean waves crash onto the beach! Lots of cute ground squirrels begging for little tidbits of food as you walk along breathing the wonderful ocean air.

The beach below is steep scramble down (yes, there are steps, but steep and eroded), but the boardwalk is pleasant and goes on for a good mile or two – the views are lovely and the folks out walking are pleasant. Hidden & visible benches...More

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
