Carmel by the Sea, also known as Carmel, have a rich history perfused with Native American, early Spanish and American History. The land was first inhabited by the Ohlone tribe. In 1602, a Spanish explorer named Carmelite Friar Sebastian Viscaino "discovered" what is known as Carmel Valley. Since the discovery, mission sites were built around the area to spread the Christian doctrine among the local native Americans. Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo is one of the 21 California missions that is preserved for us to remember.

Other than its diverse history, Carmel by the Sea offers a very beautiful scenery of nature in combination with modern society. Carmel is in between the beautiful coast of Big Sur to the south and world famous golf courses of Pebble Beach to the North. Due to the good effort in maintaining its natural beauty, Carmel has become a treat for locals and tourists to enjoy a European style vacation. The town gives everyone a calming and peaceful feeling through its elegant inns, European style buildings and five star restaurants. Specialty shops, boutiques and over 70 art and photography galleries reside in hidden courtyards and award winning gardens. The famous white sand Carmel Beach, at the edge of the village, offers an amazing view of the sunset and sculptured cypress groves. Living in Carmel by the Sea offers a wonderful and memorable experience.
