Asilomar State Beach is fabulous for spectacular views, walking, and just relaxing. There is a boardwalk path (which you must stay on except for where beach access is specifically allowed) in order to preserve the natural plant life. This is a good thing because the native plants are beautiful. When we were there, we saw several deer across the street around the beach view homes. Where you can go down to the water, you definitely want to explore the tide pools and see the hermit crabs, anemone, and other fascinating things to see. Definitely worth the trip.

Love Asilomar State Beach. Well maintain and dog friendly. Can be windy. Watched a few Sunsets at this location that were totally amazing. Fun beach to visit and walk around.

Asilomar Beach is near the end of the Pacific Grove Ocean Parkway. THere is limited parking with paths to the beach.

The beach itself can be windswept as there is little protection to it. Ok to walk but personally if you want to go into the water I would suggest elsewher

It's a pleasant place to take a stroll. The scenery is easy on the eye and the ocean breeze feels good on your face. There was a small structure where we temporarily took refuge when it began to drizzle and it had a pleasant view to wait out the rain.

We could walk here from our rental, the boardwalks lead to picturesque vistas, seating, beach access and something new around every twist and turn.

We ran past this on a half marathon. Although we couldn't linger we definitely got to enjoy the views.

I walked through from one end of Pacific Grove to Asilomar Beach. Fantastic. The breakers were rolling in. When I got there around 10am one surfer was going in, by the time I left around an hour later there were ten surfers. Entertaining.
I then walked back to Lovers Point by the Coastal Trail. Many, many wonderful views.

Path is well maintained and an easy fun walk. Sun set is a must see. Dog friendly on the north side of the creek that splits the beach.
