Carmel's Calming Effect
Carmel Beach and Overnight Getaway
SUNSET: Sunsets in Carmel just go better when paired with its flagship beach (and some wine, which is allowed on the beach!). Carmel Beach (pictured) is a locals’ favorite for many reasons, including that it’s dog-friendly, libation-friendly, and shines brightest at sunset. Stake your spot with a picnic blanket, take a stroll on the feather-soft sand, play catch with your four-legged furry pal, and kick back as the sun sinks into the horizon and stretches out to a long layer of multi-colored glows across the sea—from tangerine to deep green.
