Nature at its Best

Point Lobos
Wondrous mix of rocky cliffs, sweeping vistas, windswept trees and encircling blue-green sea is just a bit of what you can expect when you take in this State Reserve, minutes south of Carmel. Inhabited by more than 240 animal and bird species and more than 300 plant species, the reserve spreads over almost 550 acres on land and 750 acres under water, designated the first marine reserve in the United States in 1960. Visitors to this jewel hike, picnic, dive and tour the Whalers Cabin Museum, walk gently, breathe deeply, reflect, discover its spirit for yourself.

The Reserve opens daily at 9 A.M. 831-624-4909
