Love Moonstone Drive

We always drive down Moonstone drive. We usually talk a bottle of wine and walk out on the boardwalk and sit on a bench and watch the sunset. Love moonstone drive.

We stayed at a nice place on Moonstone Drive and the walkway that is along the cliff is beautiful. many places to walk down to the beach and gorgeous scenery all around. People walk, run or hike down to the beach . It's the best place to get sunset photos.

Every visit to Cambria includes several trips along this coastline. This is my favorite area to collect driftwood and stones. The pathways are so even and are also wheelchair accessible.

Wonderful views of the ocean, cliffs, rocks, distant mountains. However, why not park the car and walk on the boardwalk or the beach?

This was one of our stops on our drive up the coast. I only wish we could have spent more time here. It was a beautiful place to walk and watch the sun go down. So relaxing to just take in the scenery and listen to the sound of the surf.

Moonstone Beach was a perfect destination in October. Our home through Breen Station realty was perfect with just steps from the ocean.

What a fantastic boardwalk for a casual walk along the shore or access to the beach. The views of the coastline, beaches and local environment are what we came here for and we sure got it.
