Pacific Grove also has a thoroughly modern focus on green elements like nature and sustainability. Its beaches, located right on the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, are perfect spots for kayaking or surfing — and some of the fish you see on the Bay may turn up in your sustainable seafood dinner that night. Pacific Grove's status as one of the top Monarch butterfly wintering-over spots has procured it the nickname of "Butterfly Town, USA."
Both wheelchair accessible Asilomar State Beach and Lovers Point Beach offer reliable surfing and beautiful kayaking. Cyclists and pedestrians enjoy the coastal views along the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail. Create your own championship moments with our exceptional services and amenities.
The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History gives children and adults insight into the ever-evolving story of the Monterey Peninsula, with both human artifacts and exhibits on the flora and fauna of the area.
Visitors can also learn what life was like when Pacific Grove was remote and wild by visiting the Point Pinos Lighthouse, the oldest continually operating lighthouse on the West Coast. This lighthouse sits on the northernmost tip of the Monterey Bay Peninsula; its beacon has flashed nightly as a guide and warning to ships off the rocky California coast since February 1, 1855.
If you're fortunate enough to be in Pacific Grove during the fall or winter, you will be witness to one of nature's most incredible spectacles: the annual migration of the Monarch butterflies. Tens of thousands of Monarchs descend on Pacific Grove in October, and take up residence in the pines and eucalyptus trees of the Monarch Grove Butterfly Sanctuary.
