Moonstone Beach is one of many uncrowded beaches on the Cambria Coastline but this one brings something extra special to residents and visitors.
Enjoy strolling the one-mile boardwalk that meanders all along the splendid coast between Cambria’s north end to Leffingwell Landing and back. Or find refuge on the abundance of wooden benches along the beach park and spend a relaxing afternoon listening to the ocean’s melody while watching whales, dolphins and birds. Beach combing, exploring tide pools and viewing the sea otters as they frolic in the waves are also favorite pastimes.
Feel the sand between your toes at this natural wonder. In fact, if you look closely at the small rocks along the beach, you’ll see some aren’t rocks at all. Instead, they’re colorful, shiny moonstones for which the beach was named.
