Asilomar is beautiful! My fiancée and I bring our dogs fairly regularly to play. Beautiful walks and lots of sand! 360 degree views.

This beach goes on for miles and miles with gorgeous rocks and sand and seaweed and of course we were there when no one was there and it was heavenly!!! There were lots of paths along the upper beach and you could walk down to the beach in different places. Do not miss this beach.

A classic place to go for a casual walk or take the family. Lots of wild life to observe. Kids love looking at the various tide pools and can get a real inside look at the shorline.
