It is very rare for me to review and recommend a street drive, but this one deserves it. Pacific Grove is a hidden jewel, nestled between much better known Monterey and Carmel. Oceanview Blvd is a hidden jewel of a coastal drive running between these neighboring towns. It offers everything a beautiful coastal drive should have, usually without the crowds... More

This is our favorite area to walk, watch sunsets, and whale watch. It is a gem and free admission. Walking it you see so much more beauty than from a car.

This stretch of shoreline has a great walkway and plenty of wildlife in the water. For a relaxing walk I like park and start at Lover's Point and go west until I am ready to come back. Even on the busiest days there seems to be parking as you head west.

The location of this is excellent. It is luxurious, safe and clean. Park, a lot of free car parking, public transportation. The front desk services suggested it to our child for a picnic. Was diving and surfing.

This is a beautiful way to walk, run, bike or just sit and enjoy the view. You will see otters, sail boat, fishing boats. Parking is easy. It's also only a few blocks up the hill to find the charming Pacific Grove shopping/dining area.

This is a breath-taking drive along the coast with plenty of places to pull over and park. There are benches where you can sit and just admire Mother Nature. We drove this a couple of times. It is very busy on the weekends, but during the week it was pretty calm. Right at sunset there are lots of cars that... More

This is a great alternative to the crowds in Monterey or Carmel. Lots of parking, with the walking trail just below the road. There are benches all along the trail that provide a great place to eat your lunch, read a book, or simply enjoy the beauty of the bay

One can park easily pretty much anywhere without the fear of not finding a spot or having to pay. It is a beautiful, down to earth area, that in my view is less pretentious than not only the places mentioned in the title but also Monterrey proper.

We love this stretch of beach in PG. It's a great place to see the ocean, watch the seals and get some fresh air.

We spent an hour walking along the waterfront here with our dog. Many people stopped to visit and admire the dog. The locals are friendly and the views are stunning. This is a must if you enjoy walking or biking.
