About Carmel Beach

Decent sandbar peaks up and down the beach. Best with medium-high tides and small, clean, wedgy swells. Lots of room for everyone. There is an extremely rocky point at the southern end, which is occasionally rideable and gets crowded. Rocky point a half mile south serves up the best waves amid ample portions of local attitude. Offshore with E wind.

Accessed at the end of Ocean Avenue through Carmel; park on the road by the picturesque beach. Famous for sunsets, the Pebble Beach golf course, Clint Eastwood, and exorbitant prices.
