Carmel may be a world-class destination for its vibrant Euro village vibe bloated with gourmet restaurants, art galleries, and exclusive shops, but its inimitable location tucked between the untamed Pacific and swaths of pristine vegetated habitat is what gives it unique appeal to nature lovers. This is one of the California coast’s premier trails overlooking Carmel Bay, two beaches, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, and Point Lobos. Views across the Carmel River lagoon’s picturesque wetlands and east up the bucolic hillcradled Carmel Valley only sweeten the panoramic pot.
