“Point Lobos”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

Awesome! Loved it, so beautiful! $10.00 fee to get in. You could also park and walk from the side of the road. Well worth every penny! We saw sea otters, seal lions, seals and their pups and whales. Trails have terrific views.

A place to walk and reflect. Quiet and peaceful listening to the ocean hitting the shore.

“BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

This park was so beautiful! We saw sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters, a vulture, hummingbirds, pelicans and herons. So much wildlife.
Go early before the crowds scare everything away!

“Gorgeous Views and Hiking Trails”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

The trails were so nice with incredible views. It was amazing to see all of the sea lions and their babies. This is a great State Park and so very worth the money.

“Great views, a must see”
Reviewed 29 April 2012 via mobile

We really enjoyed this scenic area. The entry is $10 but it was worth it. Great scenic views, trails, photo opportunities, and more. Really highlights the natural beauty of the West coast.
