We were exploring Carmel and on our way to see the Mission when we stumbled across this beautiful hidden gem of a beach. The beach is very nice and unlike Carmel Beach it was not crowded and there was no steep hill to walk up or down to access the beach. The river leads into the ocean which is an amazing view to watch. The rocks on the side are always fun to climb on. The sand isn't as fine as some other beaches, but it's not chunky either. There were also restrooms which was nice. A great little beach to explore if you are in the area.
