Loved the views from this pathway as we enjoyed the beautiful weather of Monterey/Pacific Grove. Sew harbor seals and otters sunning themselves in this humans-restricted segment of beach. A real high point of our trip.

Harbor Seals and tales of Chinese fishermen make this a very special leisurely walk to Monterey Bay Aquarium.

When you go to Disneyland or places like that, you see stressed people, crying children, dissatisfaction. Along Ocean View Bl and Sunset Dr, you'll see genuinely happy, carefree people. If you look, you'll also see sea otters, seals, and sometimes whales or dolphins off-shore. Of course, there are the sea gulls, maybe a hawk watching from the top of a... More

The pink ice plant that runs alongside the oceanside trail hits full bloom in late April and early May, making for some of the most outrageous photo opps! Just be cautious of laying down on it. The local dogs make good use of it as a trampoline/potty stop, regularly.

I love a drive along the bay coast watching for critters in the water. Am seldom disappointed. Several places to pull out and park and just watch and listen.

Whenever we visit the Central Coast of California we always make time for this drive. The Monterey Bay is beautiful. There are always an abundance of wildlife to see on the rocks, and the waves crashing will take your breath away. The drive gets a little crowded in the summer, but the locals are tolerant of slow-drivers. We like to... More

When we have the opportunity to visit the Monterey Peninsula we always enjoy a nice drive along this stretch of road. The ocean views are incredible

We saw an Orca whale up close to the cliffs. There were otters and harbor seals as usual, but seeing an Orca was amazing.

So many times visitors come to Monterey and they never venture out further than the aquarium. My advice is to walk the recreational trail along the ocean into Pacific Grove, but if you're short on time or too tired to walk, take a drive along Ocean View BLVD and get a firsthand glimpse of the best of Pacific Grove: beautiful...
