About Point Lobos SNR – Moss Cove in Carmel, California
Moss Cove is the northernmost cove and beach in Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. It’s rugged and has very little sand. At high tide there are only rocks exposed at the back of the cove. However, it’s still worth the hike as this is a scenic spot with many huge rocks just offshore in the crashing surf. The closest access is from the parking lot at Whalers Cove. This route requires walking on trails north around Whalers Cove, The Pit, and Granite Point. To get down to the beach from the trail look for a footpath that leads to a rocky ledge near the center of the cove. Highway 1 isn’t far away and just a bit farther on the trail is sandy Monastery Beach.
