Re: Santa Cruz / San Luis Oblispo Landscape Coast Seascape Photo Locations

Carmel area:

As you come into Carmel there is a State park called Point Lobos, outstanding scenery of the ocean and coast.  In the town of Carmel you can go to Carmel beach, beuatiful and white sand with great sunsets.  In trhe town itself you can get some very interesting shots of houses.  You should see 17 mile drive, it has some of the nicest coastline in the area.


Cannery Row, it is a tourist spot but interesting shops and shore line with the marina there to walk on.  The Monterey aquarium, very nice and also the road from there that leads to Lovers Point is outstanding.


A small town just south of Santa Cruz with a pier and nice beach.

Santa Cruz:

My favorite place in Santa Cruz is the drive on West Cliff Dr.  It is about 4 miles long from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk to Natural Bridges State beach.  One of the most scenic roads in tow as it is all along the coast.  Lots of surfing there, lighthouse, beautiful houses and beaches.

Hope you enjoy your trip.
