Moonstone Beach Boardwalk, Cambria, San Luis Obispo California

Description

Across from the hotels in Cambria, is the wildflower-lined Moonstone Beach Boardwalk, a narrow wooden boardwalk right above Leffingwell Cove. This is a rugged, windswept beach with large driftwood, kelp balls, and dark sand. It is very cold so bring a thick jacket. Kids like to play with the many sea treasures the rough waves wash onto the sand. This is a barren, dry coastline.
Drive a few minutes south to Nottingham Drive and you will find a cute neighborhood with adorable views over little coves. This is a great place for a walk, where you may see amazing purple ice plants on the cliffs.
There is live music at Linn's Cafe most Saturdays 1-4pm.
For a large playground, check out Shamel Park, where kids can listen to the ocean while they play.
Make sure you visit the unforgettable Hearst Castle, just 12 minutes north!
