Carmel-by-the-Sea Travel Guide: 422 reviews and 1,232 photos

Very Different from Other Villages

The quaint charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea is endearing. You want to keep going back to enjoy it's beauty again. I have wonderful memories of being there the first time with my two friends on a trip to CA from Florida where I lived at the time. And I've had many enjoyable visits since then whenever friends or relatives come to visit. Carmel is full of charming streets, shops, restaurants, flowers, art galleries.

    Hi Sandi, Had the good fortune to take a house in 1998 at the point just a block from town where they had addresses on the houses. Fabulous living a block from the ocean for a week. What a quaint town, but oversupplied with art galleries. Doug

    Is sure does look like a beautiful spot. It's been so long since I've been in California ... I do miss it. but I've never been much north of Los Angelas. Maybe someday. Thanks for sharing your trip.

    Carmel sounds a lovely place to visit. I'll have to add it to my ever-growing list of places to visit

    Yes, Carmel is a beautiful place. Too bad it's become so popular and pricey :-(

    A short but wonderful page on Carmel. That hotel by the sea does sound very appealing! As you say, this town is a 'must see' spot if one is ever in the area! I really enjoyed its beaches too.
