About Point Lobos SNR – Weston Beach in Carmel, California
Weston Beach at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve has a few small pebbly areas, but it’s known for its tide pools. This round rocky cove is a great area to explore around. It is semi-protected by rocks at the mouth of the cove but be careful as waves can still get in here. If you are climbing on rocks stay up high as sneaker waves (waves that are larger than normal) hit this area regularly. Hiking trails run along the bluff behind the beach and lead to other coves and beaches in the park. Parking is available in a small lot and in shoulder spaces along the main park road next to Weston Beach. But this park is popular and fills up completely sometimes. Get here early especially on weekends and consult California tide tables to find low tides for tidepooling.
