This is a great little park on the north side of Moonstone Beach. The views are awesome and the grounds have many gorgeous trees. Well worth the short walk from the hotels on Moonstone Beach.

My favorite place in Cal. is the Central Coast. Cambria has all you need for a great stay. Good restaurants, bars, shopping and a coastal view to die for. I go several times a year.

Overlooking Leffingwell Cove & the grand Pacific...enjoy relaxation among the cypress. Wonderful walking on the bluffs thru the trees - and/or south along Moonstone Beach. A must stop when in Cambria!

Grab a drink or bottle of wine and make your way to the Landing about 8:00 pm. The fireball is still firmly in the sky but in the next 30 minutes it falls out of the sky making sunset unforgettable. Dress warmly because the temperature...More

The Landing is at the end of Moonstone Beach boardwalk and has some nice ocean views, but the boardwalk itself and the terrific Fiscalini Ranch Preserve have more extensive ocean scenery. There are some picnic tables, and we took a pathway that again wasn't much...More
