This is a nice place to watch the sun set. I love coming up to Cambria with my wife and taking long walks on Moonstone drive. The scenery is breathtaking.

I try to visit Cambria whenever I am near there. So beautiful and wild. Great restaurants and local people.

A great place to drive along the ocean and see the sunset. The road is narrow, so watch out for pedestrians crossing the street.

With Highway 1 blocked, you can always substitute this end. Start and Cambria, stay at Moonstone and drive up. Lot's of pretty stuff, plenty of souvenirs, and throw in a Castle if you want. Stroll the Boardwalk along the beach, pretty quiet in the Fall-worth...More

Moonstone Drive is a beautiful drive but to do it justice you have to at least park, get out and walk the boardwalk and or the beach below. The views are fantastic as is the sounds and smells of the ocean. If just driving it...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
