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.
