My wife and I fully enjoyed this beautiful walk. Walking along the splashing waves and breathtaking views of the ocean was very peaceful yet energizing. We would do it again the next time we visit Cambria.

The drive along this road is so pretty, we never tire of it! It is fun just to drive along this road and take in the beautiful views of Moonstone Beach. :)

We stay on Moonstsone when in Cambria. We love starting our day with a walk along the mile long Moonstone Drive. We also like to watch the sun set over the ocean. Such a great location.

The board walk is about a mile long. You can enter and exit at any time. The board walk is used to protect the coastal plants.
