Walk to Lovers Point Park
Print Leave a comment
From the Monterey Bay Aquarium you can take an inspiring walk above the ocean! Just follow the bike path west from the aquarium. You will come to a nature preserve which is a pretty cove where seals and their babies relax on the sand. It is so wonderful to watch them! You have to peak through the chainlink fence but it's still great. Keep walking and you pass the prettiest vistas of ocean, rock formations, wildlife like seals and birds, coastal flowers, and pastel-colored Victorian houses. At the end you come to Lovers Point Park, where there are two lovely coves of finest sand. Here, babies can crawl in the sand and kids can splash in the cold, clear water. You can rent bikes or kayaks, and there is a snack bar. There is also a stage over the ocean where groups sometimes perform. And there's a toddler swimming pool. At the top of the cliff is a large grassy area and cool rock formations overlooking the sea.
You can keep walking to the west even further on a path above the ocean if you'd like!
