Moonstone Beach is beautiful and rugged and I have never seen a piece of trash. There is a built in boardwalk about a mile long that is perfect for a daily stroll. There are benches periodically along the way in case you get the urge to sit and stare at the ocean, which I highly recommend. One of the prettiest... More

Wow. What difference a few years make. The boardwalk has been upgraded and expanded and is an easy walk for almost everyone. It was heavily used when we went in November. We encountered families with kids, couples with dogs, young couples and old couples. It was fun, and everyone was courteous.

This beach is across from a long row of similar inns with ocean views. There is a nice boardwalk for when the tide is in-otherwise it's a nice long walk from one end to the other, with seals, surfers and shells. Clean and not touristy.

There is nothing like strolling along the boardwalk or the sand along the waters edge at Moonstone Beach. The beach is extremely clean.

Any time is a good time to be on the beach, but clear and 75 degrees makes for a even better day. Ocean to the west, mountains to the east, what more could you ask for.

I love this area of the beach. I always come home with pieces of driftwood and beautiful colores stones. It's a beautiful walk on either a cold or sunny day. It's always special when I find a piece of beach glass. There is easy access to the beach and the scenery is beautiful.

This beach is AWESOME! The rocks are so colourful & fun - truly wish we had all day. Looking at the rocks & trying to find a special one was hard to do as they were all so beautiful!
