A lovely white sand beach with turquoise sheltered waters for swimming, and a rocky point to watch the sea life. We saw sea otters and a few seals from the point. Also a nice little beach cafe open during the day for refreshments.

As you hit this area in Pacific Grove, you will encounter the park, trail that runs past, beach access and wonderful views of Monterey Bay to Santa Cruz. Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the day, plenty of grassy areas for a picnic.

Lover's Point is known for a carpet of stunning, bright pink ice plant. I did a little research and learned that it blooms between early April through the end of May.

I was just there this week end. I really don't know about taking a BBQ onto the beach but the nice park just steps up from the beach has built in BBQ's. The park has great ocean views and is just steps from the beach.

Not sure whether this is regarding Lover's Point but if it is, it's a public area so accessible to the Public, 24/7.
