Moonstone Drive goes all along Moonstone Beach. There is a boardwalk that goes down the entire stretch. Walking on the boardwalk is both a beautiful and a calming experience. We tried to walk it twice a day. The sunset walk in the evening is breathtaking....More

Lovely place to walk along the beach and ocean. Great view and pleasant walk at your own pace. Walk way is wood but it makes the moonstone drive a easy walk.

just steps away from the motels along Moonstone Beach, this continuous board walk provides experience of walking the beach without having to traverse through the sand. Easy (level) walking with panoramic views of waves, tide pools, and wild life (rabbits and ground squirrels.

Don't miss the best walk in Cambria! The sea view is gorgeous and there are benches where you can stop and observe the surroundings. It is perfect for everyone in the family.
