This is a great little road along the beach/coast. There is a very long boardwalk that is great to walk on in wet weather or when there is a high tide.

Worth the walk, drive or stay at one of the wonderful B&B’s along Moonstone Beach. Simply a place to take a deep breath.

Taking a walk on the wooden boardwalk is an excellent way to relax and enjoy the view. We love seeing the crashing waves. Staying at Cambria Landing on Moonstone Beach is our place to stay.
