We were not sure of the distance but we know both walkers and runners can use the pathway. Incredible views of the ocean.

Fun spot with lots of driftwood on the beach to build things with. A wide strip of easily accessible beach to explore.

This is a wonderful boardwalk with beach access stairs along the way. Keep your eye out for all the Cottontails that run along the boardwalk. Very different to see Cottontails so close to the ocean. A very peaceful spot along the coast of California.

The boardwalk on Moonstone Beach is so welcome especially to those of us who aren’t as sure footed on beach sand and traversing dunes. Located right across the street from a variety of hotel accommodations and several restaurants, this is why we come to Moonstone....More

We took a delightful late afternoon walk right from our hotel along the meandering wooden boardwalk taking in the beautiful ocean and sunset views while also checking out the various seaside restaurants along the other side of Moonstone Drive.

My wife and I enjoyed waling along the cliff and seeing all the sea life and plants. It is very beautiful and worth seeing.

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.
