Inside Tips | Famous Carmel Beach
Carmel by the sea is known for its many rides, but perhaps nothing more than its beautiful sandy beach. So whether you stay up on the scenic cypress-filled Scenic Road or feel the sands under your foot, Carmel Beach is impressive for first-time visitor or local pilgrims.
There' is no end to the landscape: the majestic Pacific Ocean, windsurfers who catch a trip on the wakes, pools of sparrows and otters, hounds raging off the lead, the Iconian Frank Lloyd Wright home and the rough Carmel spot to the south and the golfer who tackle Pebble Beach Golf Links to the North. Also in Carmel Beach different activities take place every year, like the Great Sandcastle Contest (55 years and running), Sunshine Freestyle Surfabout and Poodle Day.
It is also a favourite place for wedding receptions and rehearsals for the bride and groom - fitting why Carmel-by-the-Sea was voted "#3 Best City for Romance in the World" when the reader of the Travel + Leisure Magazin chose "World's Best Cities for Romance". Irrespective of how often you enter Carmel Beach, it always offers something new and different.
