Welcome to Monterey & Carmel

For unforgettable coastal scenery, great beaches, and excellent whale watching, Monterey and Carmel are south-central California standouts. These small, history-laden towns sit on a peninsula that presents some of the state’s most iconic beaches and shorelines. Monterey is centered on its historic harbor and the old sardine Cannery Row made famous by writer John Steinbeck. Carmel is a Spanish colonial mission village dating to 1771 that has gained renown as a charming beach town and artists’ enclave. Seventeen miles of coastal trail to explore on an e-bike or in a fun GPS-guided Sea Car, and many galleries, eateries, wineries, and unique adventures await the traveler in Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea.
