This is one of my favorite places to stay. Love beach combing and this beach has so many pretty rocks and sea glass. Lots of good hotels and restaurants. Best thing is it's not overcrowded. Several great hotels to choose from.

A great drive to catch the sunset. We walked along the beach and saw seals resting on rocks at the far end of the beach.

After you have enjoyed the unmatched beauty of Moonstone Beach, take time to check out the fun and funky hotels that line Moonstone Drive. Many of them have quirky gardens and quaint little cottages.

Board walk above the beach that is clearly well maintained. Excellent views out to sea and the kelp beds with an opportunity to sea wild life. Lots of ground squirrels who are clearly used to human company and being fed. Lovely place to stroll be...More

We spent a good part of the afternoon on the boardwalk partly because we could not get into our hotel room..... and because the views are outstanding. It has that rugged Pebble Beach vibe without the Real Estate but it does have the crashing waves...More

This boardwalk is a romantic little walk, with a great view of the cove and ocean beyond. Must do/see in the early morning or late evenings. Check oit the b3ach as well!

If you are not able to walk the board walk then at the very least roll down the windows and take it all in. If you are physically able then take the steps down from the boardwalk and enjoy the rock shore.

There are just a million things to do here! Walk, sit, take pictures, drink wine, watch the waves, close your eyes, drink coffee (if you're there in the morning), greet the nice people walking by, explore the tide-pools, watch the sea lions, feel the breeze...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

The board walk is about a mile long. You can enter and exit at any time. The board walk is used to protect the coastal plants.
