Manicure in Cambria

Hello - is there anywhere I can get a manicure in Cambria. I am staying at the Fogcatcher in a couple of weeks, and somewhere within walking distance would be ideal (I am British, so I don't mind walking far to get somewhere :) )

Probably nothing in walking distance from Moonstone Beach.

I think Yelp.com will be your best resource for a nail salon.

While looking for spas I saw Diva Day Spa in San Simeon and they do nails, but you'd have to drive. I also saw a Yelp review for Nails by Tess in Cambria, but again you'd probably want to drive.

Moonstone Beach Drive is isolated from the main part of town. As everyone else has mentioned.... you would have to drive to find a place that does nails.

Google maps is a good source for seeing distances.

This shows your motel and Nails by Tess in Cambria. The distance is a little over 2 miles:


This other map shows your hotel and the Diva Day Spa which is farther away at a little over 3 miles:


I have no experience with either place but thought that seeing them on a map would help you understand the situation.

As everyone else said, there's nothing within walking distance. I used to live in Boston and a mile or two was considered walking distance. Out here, people get in their cars to cross the street.

The walk from the Fogcatcher to these businesses would involve a stroll along the shoulder of Highway 1, which is not exactly safe or pedestrian-friendly.

Yelp also lists a salon called Pacific Hair that offers mani/pedis. It definitely is closer to Moonstone Drive than the other two locations already named. I haven't been there but address is 780 Arlington Street (Phone 805-927-3301) which is the street directly above Main Street. As you read, we Americans drive everywhere. Definitely do-able at 1.1 miles because location is close by the West Village section of Cambria's "downtown" area. Once again problem is that Moonstone Drive does not have a paved sidewalk. There is a bus/shuttle that used to run into town. There are stops along Moonstone and Main Street. I did see a small bus going down Moonstone and it did drop someone off by a hotel. I'll see what I can find out. Sorry, I didn't see your post earlier, I was just in Cambria for the past few days and could have driven by there. Yelp has a current review so must still be at that location.
