Moonstone Beach & Shamel Park, Cambria, San Luis Obispo California

Description

Shamel Park has a large lawn and nice playground, right by Moonstone Beach, which is a large windswept cove. The dark sand slopes down to the wild surf. It's fun to watch the waves crash on the rocks at the point of the green headland. Seagulls keep an eye on things.
The neighborhood by the park is cute and the rugged cypress trees add atmosphere.
Kids will enjoy listening to the ocean as they play on the playground with twisty tunnel slide, double slide for races, tunnel to crawl through, bridge, tightrope bar, bouncy, baby swings, and swings. It is not an imaginative playground but it does have plenty of equipment to explore.
There are plenty of shady picnic tables, though it's too cold to be in the shade!
Bring a thick jacket because it's cold!
Walk north and you will get to the Moonstone Beach Boardwalk and the ocean-view hotels of Cambria.
Walk south and you will come to ice plant on the cliffs over gorgeous rocky coves at Seaclift Estates.
Make sure you visit the unforgettable Hearst Castle, just 12 minutes north!
