Point Lobos State Reserve And China Cove Gibson Beach, Carmel-by-the-sea Reviews - Write a Review

  • went here with my in-laws. This is a nice place to spend a day with kids as well as older people. There are lots of small trails and many parking lots. Best part is the trails are not too long, which is a plus point when you are with older people. There is a nice picnic area with benches, restrooms and drinking water. Views are extra ordinary. We were able to spot some birds, but could not recognize.

  • Beautiful natural treasure you can't miss visiting Carmel. Meandering through woods, you would suddenly be presented with stunning ocean view in front of you, with sea birds and sea lions calling from afar. Some trails are a bit challenging. Need a good pair of shoes to comfortably roaming from one scenic spots to another. Make sure to get down to the Whale's Cove and check out the whale museum. Get there early. Very early, as this is a very popular spot.

  • I Went Here In October Of 2017. And I Enjoyed Myself, The View Is Breathtakingly Beautiful, We Mountain Climbed, And Took Many Pictures. The Seals Are Beautiful, And Their Surroundings. The Rocks Are Beautiful. And The People Were Friendly As Well. Me, And My Family Will Most Definitely Be Going Back Again. They Have Picnic Areas, And Very Good Restrooms. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Spend multiple days here. It's too beautiful to describe. You'll see seals, otters, possibly whales and tons of cool plants. Make sure you learn how to identify poisonous plants before you go. I had a microbiologist and a seasoned hiker with me to keep me out of trouble. I can easily see how someone could make a mistake. Also, wear the right shoes, please. Don't make my stupid mistake.

  • We are driving the west coast for our vacation and stopped here along the way. It was absolutely beautiful and I am so glad we stopped in. They have so many trails and we spent 2 hours here just exploring, and didn’t even cover all of the trails. The park ranger at the information booth was very knowledgeable and was happy to speak with anyone with questions. Honestly, the view was absolutely incredible from the South Shore Trail. Probably the best we’ve seen on the coast drive from San Francisco to Cramel so far. Highly recommend!
