Good place to stop when traveling up the coastline to Big Sur. Parking area @ Moonstone Beach Drive has a panoramic view of Moonstone Beach. However we didn't see any of those colored stones there. Not sure if you need to stop at another part of Moonstone Beach or if they only wash onto shore certain times of the year. If traveling though and want to see them, stop @ an information center and find out. A little secret not many people know about is along Moonstone Beach Drive, just about a quarter mile north of the parking area you can see harbor seals sunning themselves on the rocks. Just park along the road and walk down. They will do some very cute poses for you. We were here before, 20 years ago and saw them that time also.
