Carmel Vacation Rentals to Enjoy the Beautiful White Sand Beach With Views of Pebble Beach
Carmel by the Sea or more often just called Carmel is an outstanding beach town located on the central coast of California, just south of Monterey and north of Big Sur. Carmel is best known for the many art galleries, upscale shops, cafes and dramatic views from the white sand beach next to downtown.
Carmel has the typical climate found in most coastal towns in California with highs in the mid 80’s and lows in the 50-60’s at night so bring some warm clothes for night time. The best way to really experience this refined town is to check into one of the many Carmel Vacation rentals that are offered in several of the neighborhoods around downtown, by the beach or up in the Carmel Highlands. Regardless of staying in a Carmel Condo downtown, Carmel cottage in the woods or an expansive ocean estate, you will for sure love this town for many reasons. If you are wondering what to do… you could play golf at the world famous Pebble Beach which you can actually see from the beach in Carmel or you could visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium, experience the beautiful coastline in Big Sur (maybe have lunch), tour 17 mile drive which would give an amazing view of not only some of the nicest golf courses in the world but also of the dramatic coast abundant in wildlife going about their day. If you like history, one of the 21 missions started in the 1700’s is located on Rio Road and is said to be the most beautiful of all the missions.
Whatever you choose to do, be sure to fit in just strolling around town. Its very laid back with many great shops and art galleries to visit. You could venture over to the Forester Theatre and check out a community theater performance too. At night they allow you have fires on the beautiful white sand beach until 10pm at the bottom of the hill from downtown. Don’t forget that Carmel is one of the most dog friendly towns in California and will be allowed just about everywhere. So if you are contemplating leaving the dog at home, absolutely bring him or her.
