Moonstone Beach Dr, Cambria

4.9
#2 of 73 in Outdoors in San Luis Obispo County
Drive along Moonstone Beach Dr and make your way down the coastline surrounded by sand dunes, beachfront homes, and sweeping ocean views. Running right next to Highway 1, the route represents a more scenic alternative, bringing you closer to the sea itself and allowing you to drive at a slower pace. Stop along your way to wander the numerous stretches of boardwalk throughout the area and take in the sandy cliffs and trees that form the landscape around you. Keep your eyes peeled and you may even get to view a colony of seals snoozing on the beach. For Moonstone Beach Dr and beyond, use our Cambria road trip planning website to get the most from your Cambria vacation.
