Enjoyed watching the sea lions and exploring the shops. The people who work in the shops and restaurants were friendly and helpful.

“Great Views of the bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

Great views of the bay from the rooftop of Rappa's Resturant, the Candy shop halfway down is a must.

“Tourist stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

It isn't a place you have to go, take in Carmel. Skip the tired shop keepers and high prices at the restaurants.

“Dump”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

2 shops selling cheap mass-produced souvenirs, a half-dozen restaurants selling the same over-priced fare with hawkers outside begging you to come in. That's about it. Apparently there used to be a lot of seals (sea lions?) hanging out on the docks, but boards have been put up to keep the seals out. Yes, you can see the ocean, but nothing like the views you can get anywhere else on the Monterey Peninsula. We found this a total waste of time.
