Cambria's Moonstone Drive is a lovey walk along the ocean, unencumbered by distractions from manmade noise and commotion. The perfect getaway for a relaxing "mind reset" and quiet contemplation of the beauty of nature.

Great place to take a long stroll along a boardwalk next to the ocean. Great place to take some good photos of the ocean. Easy walking.

You have to walk the boardwalk and enjoy the view. The boardwalk is surrounded by beautiful wild flowers and there's a lot of squirrels wandering around. So relaxing just listening to the ocean waves!

A boardwalk that is flat and easily accessible for all. Best times are at sunrise and sunset, but there is no bad time! Watch and listen to the breakers, walk down stairs to the beach---it's all there.

As coastal drives in the US go, this is right up there amongst the scenic and memorable ones. There are some hotels along the way .. And it leads to Hearst castle.

Well defined walking/biking/wheelchair path along the ocean. Lots to see on the beach and beautiful wildflowers abound. It was a great idea to put down the path to protect the land from erosion AND the wildlife...as we rested on one of the benches, A 4ft...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
