Coming from Long Island where we have beautiful beaches and boardwalks, we found the boardwalk along Cambria beach equally impressive. You can see surfers, beautiful plants and trees, and scenic landscapes.

This is the best part of this beach and street. Well maintained. Awesome flora. Benches, stairs to the beach and bathrooms along the way. Every place needs a beach front walkway like this! So perfect!

We always drive down Moonstone drive. We usually talk a bottle of wine and walk out on the boardwalk and sit on a bench and watch the sunset. Love moonstone drive.
