Relax at Lover's Point Beach


Added by Karissa Frye

Surfing, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, or just chillin' on the beach.

Getting there: Drive to the bottom of Ocean View Boulevard in Pacific Grove, California. You will reach a small parking lot. Unfortunately, the parking here is limited. On the bright side, this means the crowds never get too big! The ocean has open swells for surfers, diverse marine-life for snorkelers, and can be mellow enough for even beginner stand-up paddle-boarders. The waves here can be somewhat inconsistent, so for your safety, be sure to check out the report before you head out!   

If you're coming to the area for a while and need somewhere to stay, be sure to check out Asilomar Conference Grounds.

Lots of jelly fish

Went paddleboarding here and saw hundred of jellyfish. Many by the shore and more spread out after you paddle out a bit

Beautiful spot, crappy parking

First time we went here, we couldn't find parking - next time we came a bit earlier and lucked out. Great spot to watch the sunset and the surfers.
