Monterey is perched on California’s rugged central coast. Its Cannery Row, one-time centre of the sardine-packing industry, was immortalized by novelist John Steinbeck. Today, it's a popular strip of gift shops, seafood restaurants and bars in converted factories. Carmel hosts a beautiful stretch of beach and is rated as one of America’s top beach town, between the two is Pebble Beach, noted for its international golf course
Wrapped by the Pacific on three sides, the Monterey Peninsula offers wind-tossed beaches and quiet coves, fine dining and casual eateries.
World-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, with its psychedelic jellies and bat-ray petting tanks is a must-visit, especially for families.
Cannery Row, made famous by local author John Steinbeck. Is a new hub for shopping, dining and wine tasting
Rent bikes to follow the coast south around the peninsula to Pacific Grove, Asilomar State Beach, and the sea-and-spray beauty (and gazillion-dollar homes and celebrated Pebble Beach golf courses).
On Monterey Peninsula’s south side, explore artsy Carmel-by-the-Sea (locals just call it Carmel). Stroll the white sands of Carmel Beach, or explore a mosaic of meadows, wave-battered bluffs, and wind-twisted trees at nearby Point Lobos State Reserve, then saunter back to Carmel’s main village, with gallery-lined streets, cosy gastropubs, and even cosier inns.
