Moonstone Beach is one of Cambria’s most charming and scenic spots, and our No. 9 California Coast vacation destination. Stay here and have spectacular ocean views, plus all the area attractions of Cambria.
For a romantic California getaway, look no further than this unspoiled beach area. This is the opposite of crowded, touristy beaches; Moonstone Beach gives your California beach getaway a softer side and a romantic ambience. You’re likely to find semi-precious jasper stones, sea otters and even whales from the shoreline. Cambria is equally as appealing – this city features a boardwalk, one of the top glass art galleries in the US, free trolley rides and much more. Make sure to visit the Hearst Castle, an architectural masterpiece, designed by famed Julia Morgan. This property has 165 rooms and 126 acres of landscaping and took builders nearly 28 years to finish! Other area historic attractions include Nit Wit Ridge and the Padras Blancas Light Station.
And if Cambria is too restrictive for you, San Luis Obispo is just minutes away. This incredible area is famous for its vineyards, beaches and its rich culture.
