Pocket Guide: Monterey Carmel Beach Hotels

Surfers and dog walkers flock to the pristine white sands of the crescent-shaped Carmel Beach in the beautiful city of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The mile-long beach is famous for its glorious sunsets, and locals and tourists bring picnics and wine here in the evening to watch the sun go down. You're even allowed to light a small fire on the beach to snuggle up in front of as the day draws to a close.

What Kind of Hotels Are There near Carmel Beach?

You’ll have no trouble finding Carmel Beach accommodation. The town of Carmel-by-Sea is known for its wide range of independently-owned inns and hotels, which offer quirky features and a friendly atmosphere. You’ll also find spa hotels in lush grounds, practical big-brand hotels and great-value B&Bs – so whatever you’re looking for, there’s a Carmel Beach hotel to suit you.

Things to See and Do on Carmel Beach

Thanks to its clear waters and easy rolling point breaks, Carmel Beach is popular with surfers, who can enjoy knockout views of the coast, all the way from Point Lobos to Pebble Beach. You’ll also see organised volleyball games taking place on the beach almost every weekend throughout the year. If you fancy trying a bit of volleyball yourself, Carmel Beach’s silky sand means you’re guaranteed a soft landing if you lose your balance.

Take Coastal Walks from Your Carmel Beach Hotel

Take a stroll along the Scenic Bluff Path, a gravel pathway that runs alongside Carmel Beach, and winds its way through Monterey cypress trees and manicured gardens to Carmel River Beach. Keep a lookout for the fairytale cottages that sit proudly on the cliffs backing the beach. Alternatively, just build sandcastles or enjoy a dip in the sea, but note that the water is quite cold – usually around 15.5C even in the summer months.

Wildlife and Water Sports in the Carmel River Area

One mile south of Carmel Beach is Carmel River State Beach, a quieter option that appeals to divers, kayakers, surfers and bird-watchers. Seabirds that can be spotted here include marbled godwits, brown pelicans, tiny sanderlings and black oystercatchers.
