Lovers Point Park
Welcome to Lovers Point Park, the protected beach area and small park space that is perfect for spending an afternoon or evening by the Bay!
This park is part of the state marine reserve system, one out of four small marine protected areas in the region. It is believed the parks name has evolved over the years from 'Lovers of Jesus Point Park', as Pacific Grove used to be a Methodist Retreat Camp area. Historically it has seen over 100 years of popular shoreline recreation use, so popular due to its reliable waves, amazing views, and constant supply of viewable local wildlife. The views are so amazing here because the beach has a unique east-facing location, meaning it is one of the only spots in the area to watch the sun rise over the ocean.
While here your group can boat, swim, surf, picnic, play volleyball or enjoy a great photography opportunity. Many scuba divers also enjoy the area due to the many unique kelp forests throughout. The well-groomed 4.4-acre grassy park space is located atop a rocky cliff by the beach, with many guests enjoying climbing and relaxing on the rocks themselves. There is a small children's pool, onsite snack bar, nearby Beach House Restaurant, and concrete pier to enjoy as well!
If you happen to be visiting during July you will get to enjoy the popular local tradition of the Feast of Lanterns, or perhaps the 'Kelp Crawl' triathlon activities.
