Carmel Municipal Beach


The white sands and fantastic sunsets make this municipal beach popular with sand-castle builders, photographers, pet owners (it’s very dog-friendly), picnickers, and wedding parties. It’s just a mile from (and not to be confused with) Carmel River State Beach, down some steep stairs from a parking area on Ocean Avenue and minutes from all the in-town offerings of Carmel-by-the-Sea. A shady, gravel path that parallels the beach on bluffs along Scenic Road also has access points.
