Beautiful Views

This is a spectacular venue to watch the waves hit the shore. Seabirds and possibly sea lions and otters abound. Very serene & scenic

This park was right across the street from our hotel so we took a stroll over after breakfast one morning. A great location on Monterey Bay. There are huge rock formations to climb, beautiful sculptures all around the grassy area, benches and walking paths...fantastic views everywhere you look.

What a lovely little seaside park open to the public! Definitely put it on your list hen you're in the area, great sea views, great photo place and the sounds of the waves crashing make a nice background orchestra to sit and watch the surfers!

Lovers Point Park has beautiful views of Monterey Bay. It's a very popular place but for good reason!

We were passing through Monterey towards Pacific Grove when we came upon this lovely park with a beautiful view. We couldn't help but get out and explore and climb the rocks and enjoy the view of the ocean. It is absolutely beautiful. Had we more time, we would have walked the trail, or even just sat and enjoyed the scenery.

Take a drive along beautiful Oceanview Blvd in Pacific Grove and stop at Lover's Point. It might better be called Family Lover's Point because it is enjoyed by all ages. There is a great section of rock formations to climb on and over; a wonderful cove and beach for easy access to the ocean; a special landing for scuba divers... More

Beautiful spot to spend an hour or so away from the hustle and bustle of Cannery Row.. The beach below has wonderful views and their are snack bars and restaurants close nearby. It's a relatively short walk (half an hour) from the Monterey Aquarium along a path through the California State Marine Reserve where you'll see aquatic wildlife and experience... More

Each visit to Pacific Grove is only complete when we walk to Lover's Point. This community embraces this lovely park and they enjoy it fully. You may find students taking pictures for prom, a wedding party, families playing, or couples walking hand-in-hand. Actually, you could find all of this at the same time! The place is magic, especially at sunset.
