Carmel-by-the-Sea (casually known as Carmel) is a quirky, artsy seaside retreat with a small-town feel where everything needed for a perfect vacation is within walking distance. There’s the excellent beach, of course - wide and sandy, dotted by windswept pines, with a scenic path that follows the dramatic coastline for over a mile. Carmel’s most unique attraction is the town itself. Mission-style buildings stand beside fairytale cottages, and between them wind hidden pathways opening onto sunny garden courtyards. Here you’ll find art galleries, tiny boutiques and intimate bistros serving everything from burgers and brunch to classic French cuisine, all seasoned with a dash of classic Carmel charm.
