As you stroll around do yourself a favor and stop and observe, you will probably see something like a harbor seal sunning itself on a rock (they can blend in) or critters bobbing in the water.

Went here to shoot some photography and there is plenty to shoot. Nice cypress trees, rock formations, flowers, and squirrels near the rocks. There was a nice grill there but we did not try it. It was continuously busy so evidently people liked it.

At the top of lovers point you have a gorgeous view of Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains. You must see it to understand the beauty.

While you're waiting for a table at one of the nearby restaurants, this is a nice park to relax and enjoy the nature. This is also a good launch point for walking in either direction.

We visited this place with friends in an early friday afternoon in March. It was empty but it was very relaxing. There are some eateries around. You can sit and watch the ocean until all your stress is relieved. Recommneded to visit.

My wife and I visited this place and found a wonderful walking and resting area. I used the time to read. Climbing on the rocks overlooking the ocean is very fun. If you don't want to climb you can run in the grass. There are also plenty of wonderful food places around to enjoy.

Took the family here for a picnic and they had a blast. They loved climbing on the rocks and searching the tide pools. Also, they went swimming in the cove and built sandcastles on the beach which is well protected. Great for kids and adults of all ages.

A great place to just sit down, enjoy the view of the ocean. Off course best to sit there with your love one. Best part is to see the sunset
