This drive has stops where you can park your car, and get out and have access to the boardwalk that they put in a few years back. The boardwalk allows you to get a closer view or access to the ocean. You often see sea...More

What a beautiful place with no traffic or large crowds. The two mile long boardwalk was fantastic! Nice places to stay like Pelican Inn & Suites. Great restaurants very close by.

We walked here each day, several times a day and night. About one mile long but just keep going towards town for longer walk. Can also walk Moonstone beach.

The drive is pretty short, just a mile of beachfront hotels and ocean vistas. But if you leave the car and walk along the well maintained boardwalk, it is spectacular. The wildflowers are in full bloom, the breakers crash against the huge boulders, and the...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
