“My favoite beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

I love Carmel beach, for it's serene beauty. I can sit and watch the waves, people with their dogs all day. This is not a swimming beach, which is another reason I love it. No people sitting on the beach and running in and out of the water. Just a peaceful way to enjoy the beach.

“Bond Fires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We used to go here at night and make big bond fires with the driftwood that had washed ashore. Carmel itself is a gem to walk around.

“Wonderful beach - white sand!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

At the end of Carmel Village just keep walking Ocean Avenue through the quaint houses and guest motels and there you are. White sand - quite lovely. Certain portions of it also allow bonfires at night until 10:00 p.m. A wonderful romantic evening! Not to be missed on your visit to Carmel.
