The picturesque beach town of Carmel lies tucked away in a corner of the Monterey Peninsula. Savor the seaside air along the Scenic Bluff Path that takes you from the fine white sands of Carmel Beach to the wildlife attractions of Carmel River State Beach. Further south you will find amazing diving spots, perhaps some of the best in the country! Leisurely afternoons are well spent on wine trails meeting local winemakers and learning the nuances of their hearty reds and sparkling whites. History buffs will love the majestic Carmel Mission whose museums and libraries are as architecturally delightful as historically significant. Spend time in the picture-postcard town center; known as the Village, it is lined with fairy tale-cottages and quaint art galleries worth visiting. Evenings are well spent enjoying live music at the Sunset Center followed by a delectable supper at a charming local restaurant.
