“Enjoy rolling waves and gorgeous oceanside views as you sip your morning coffee.”— Hunter R
While enjoyed all times of day, most people can be found running along the Moonstone Beach Boardwalk in the morning, often with a mug of coffee in hand and little Fido in tow. Expect to see a mix of both locals out for their daily walks, as well as tourists passing through on a journey along Highway 1.
Parking is located at numerous pullouts along Moonstone Drive, but get there early as they often fill up with all manner of RVs and pickup trucks carrying surfers. Don't be surprised if you find yourself exiting your car to find a surfer grunting and heaving himself into a sticky wetsuit, the neoprene still damp from the day before.
