9) Del Monte Beach, Monterey County
Since 1992 the vast area of Monterey Bay has been known as Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and is made up of almost 300 miles of coastline. Rugged, rocky, and inaccessible in places, this is typical central coast shoreline and Del Monte Beach, located in Monterey is the best place to enjoy it. Visitors flock to the wide open space of Del Monte Beach for surfing, snorkelling, diving and camping and to walk the boardwalk that winds through an ongoing dunes restoration project. Nearby Salinas River National Wildlife Refuge welcomes visitors to explore its salt marshes, lagoons and distinctive saline pond while picnic tables and fire pits along the Del Monte boardwalk complete the perfect beach scene.
