Small park at the north end of Moonstone Beach boardwalk. Picnic tables and small network of trails, with a few benches at overlooks/viewpoints. Dogs allowed on leash.

This is a great little park on the north side of Moonstone Beach. The views are awesome and the grounds have many gorgeous trees. Well worth the short walk from the hotels on Moonstone Beach.

My favorite place in Cal. is the Central Coast. Cambria has all you need for a great stay. Good restaurants, bars, shopping and a coastal view to die for. I go several times a year.

Overlooking Leffingwell Cove & the grand Pacific...enjoy relaxation among the cypress. Wonderful walking on the bluffs thru the trees - and/or south along Moonstone Beach. A must stop when in Cambria!

The Landing is at the end of Moonstone Beach boardwalk and has some nice ocean views, but the boardwalk itself and the terrific Fiscalini Ranch Preserve have more extensive ocean scenery. There are some picnic tables, and we took a pathway that again wasn't much...More

Yes. Fiscalini cliffside boardwalk/trail runs north/south. At the north end of Fiscalini you need to exit the Ranch and walk north on Windsor Blvd for about 1/2 mile. You will see Shamel Park on your left (w/children's... More
