Great for new surfers, and for relaxing afterwards!

Meet at Del Monte Ave at the start of the Municipal Wharf (where Figueroa St. ends and the beach begins).

The winds at Monterey Beach are famous, so of course it’s a favorite spot for surfers. Because of its weaker riptides, patrolling lifeguards, and convenient beach access, it’s a surf spot best suited new surfers. And don’t be surprised if you look out a little beyond the surf and see dolphins playing in the waves! Bring you beach towels and sunscreen because it’s also a great place to hangout before or after the lesson.
