This beach is simply beautiful and has an easy access from many places. You can walk along the designated pat or simply sit on the beach and relax. Must visit place when you driving along the coast or visiting Cambria

Beautiful beach to walk on and explore nature. We had the opportunity to enjoy the tide pools and were able to find many sea creatures including seals. Quiet town with a beautiful beach.

Such a peaceful spot along the central coast. The beach here is very different from the beaches up north. The beach is more small tumbled, smooth stones rather than sand. Great fun looking for that perfect little stone as you walk the beach. Get off...More

From early morning and just at sunset it's like a living postcard filled with small animals, sea life, birds, and most recently some rain and great cloud formations that at sunset make for nice photos.

There’s never a bad time to visit Moonstone Beach! Rained the whole time we were here and it was really beautiful. Big crashing waves, lots of birds in the air, rabbits and squirrels everywhere. Walking the boardwalk in the rain was worry free and easy....More

Take a walk on the boardwalk, it's absolutely gorgeous! It was cloudy when we were there, but I'm sure the sunset would be amazing

Moonstone Beach is a wonderful location along California’s Central Coast that offers wide beach (coarse sand and pebbles mixed) & a boardwalk up above that allows for ease of exploration. Sorry, but my pictures would not lead to Trip Advisor.

May is a great time with wildflowers in bloom on the bluffs above Moonstone beach. Is really beautiful and the weather is pretty nice in May.

No camping on Moonstone, but San Simeon State Park (close by) is nice! We scouted it in January.
