Window on the Bay Beach in Monterey, California

Window on the Bay Beach (aka Windows Beach) is the southernmost of three separate sections of Monterey State Beach. This state-owned beach is in front of the nicely landscaped city-owned and operated Monterey Bay Waterfront Park. The Monterey Municipal Wharf 2 is west of the park where the beach is known as Municipal Beach. If you want some solitude just walk east on this north-facing beach as it curls along the bay shore toward a locals’ access known as Del Monte Beach. For Windows Beach there is street parking available along Del Monte Avenue and there is a pay lot at the end of Camino El Estero. The Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail runs behind the beach and connects to the other sections of the state beach in northern Monterey and Seaside. Sea kayak rentals are usually available at Municipal Beach. The El Estero Park Complex is across Del Monte Ave. It has a playground, fishing pier, dog park, snack bar, skate park, and various types of boat rentals for playing on Lake El Estero.
