Monterey State Beach – Seaside Beach
About Monterey State Beach – Seaside Beach in Seaside, California
Seaside Beach is the northernmost of three separate sections of Monterey State Beach. Ironically, this is the only part of the city of Seaside, California that actually touches the “seaside.” From here you can walk north below bluffs to Sand City Beach and beyond. Dogs are not allowed at Seaside Beach as it is considered an endangered species area, but they are allowed south of the hotel at Houghton M. Roberts Beach which is also part of Monterey State Beach. There is a lifeguard on staff during the summer months, but this section of the coast has strong rip currents so swimming is not advised.
The parking lot for Seaside Beach is on the north side of the Monterey Tides Hotel at the end of Canyon Del Rey Boulevard. Take the Seaside exit off Highway 1 and drive toward the ocean to get here. The hotel restaurant is conveniently located next to the beach if you want to spend the entire day here. Another hidden access to Seaside Beach can be found up Sand Dunes Drive at West Bay Street. The Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail runs behind the beach and extends south to downtown Monterey and north through Sand City into Marina, CA.
