The protected waters of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary teem with ocean and bird life. You’ll hike pristine beaches and have miles all to yourself. Enjoy unique inns and great dining. Stop for an extra day in Moss Landing and kayak in Elkhorn Slough for some of the most spectacular wildlife viewing on California’s coast. You may want to hike only part of this trek or break it into two 2-day journeys. It is easy to return to Capitola at the end of any day along the route. Enjoy the great beauty and power of the Pacific by hiking its shoreline along the Monterey Bay.
