Beautiful area. Interesting houses near by that should be seen. Try local places to eat which are not typical so are unique to beach scene California. Forget the fast food joints. Shops too if you can afford it.
We visited late in the afternoon and stayed for a beautiful sunset. Area was quiet and we felt quite safe even after dark. We returned early the next morning to look for "moonstones". The area was deserted and we had the place to ourselves. Picked up some jade-stones.
We came to Moonlight Beach to spend a few days before a cruise with the family and friends. We had planned to take in some of the sights but the family loved the beach that we never left. This is a great Beach to hang out, surf or boogie board. You can either be around people near the entrance or... 更多

The right was milder and very few surfers. My son who started surfing about a month ago tried both but preferred the right side... 更多

This beach is interesting in that there is no parking at the beach level, you park on a cliff overlooking the beach with a walkway that goes down to the beach. Nice area for the kids. Walk along the beach with high cliffs on one side and the ocean on the other. Beautiful setting and not too busy.
This year we were at Moonlight Beach during the annual "Wavecrest" event, which is the largest "woodie" meet in the world. Woodies are wood-trimmed or wood backed station wagons, a staple of surf culture. There were over 100 of these beautiful classic cars on dislpay. I am not a vintage car nut, but it was free, and I have to... 更多
Since Moonlight Beach was close to our hotel, we walked along it each day right at sunrise. The beach was peaceful at that hour. There were many others walking along the shore, and it was fun to see the early morning surfers. The beach has a playground for children and a volleyball area. They have restroom facilities, but they did... 更多
