This beach is a family friendly beach with clean restrooms and access points along with stunning views. I wish we could have utilized the kayaks that were available for rent but alas, we had to just watch the sea lions and otters from the shore.

Nice place on the coast to view the bay, especially if you get one of the free parking places (2-hr time limit).

The morning after our niece's wedding at Asilomar, the family gathered for a breakfast picnic at Lovers Point Park. Beautiful spot on the ocean. Picnic tables available

I do not believe the pool is heated. It is pretty new as they had a campaign to completely re-do it a few years ago. Now it is more of a smaller kids pool than a pool for adults. Has a ramp going down to enter the water.
