Carmel Beach at Carmel-by-the-Sea

At the foot of Ocean Avenue, Carmel Beach is one of the most iconic spots on California's Central Coast and is rated "One of America's Top Beach Towns."

Before making our way to Carmel Beach, we had to have breakfast. Initially planned at iHop, we ended up at Black Bear Diner after finding out ourselves that iHop was closed for renovation.

This is their menu by the way.

Heading down to Ocean Avenue, you'll be greeted by an awesome view of sand, sky, and the ocean.

It was already a challenge to go down the beach itself, double it when you make your way back up the street.

We went and explored most of the streets at Carmel-by-the-sea. The placed had fancy restaurants, a famous family-owned bakery, and retail stores.
