This one-mile-long, picture-perfect crescent of blue is a favorite with locals and visitors who come to walk the beach trail accessible from Highway 1 and observe birds in the lagoon where the Carmel River empties into the sea. Swimming and wading are extremely dangerous here.

Dogs can walk on the beach but must be leashed.

Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints

A plus: it’s walking distance from fashionable Carmel-by-the-Sea, with its wealth of dog-friendly lodging and places to eat. more »
