Carmel-by-the-Sea California

Carmel-by-the-Sea (or just plain Carmel) is another world – once a quaint and secluded artist’s colony, now a getaway destination with something notable on every walkable block. Fog often shrouds the tall pines and inland forests. The village itself has no street addresses and no one seems to want to modernize it anyway. Where else but Carmel-by-the-Sea would you find thatched roofs, timbered walls and rounded brick chimneys, all framed by ivy and hanging flower baskets?

City Index Print/Zoom

Carmel-by-the-Sea has a famous town beach, wonderfully undeveloped, an easy walk from the main shopping district. The village has every type of romantic and unique lodging imaginable – none especially large. Visitors will quickly realize why writers, photographers, artists and poets made Carmel-by-the-Sea their home. Today, "artist" is defined a bit differently - Clint Eastwood is the local star.
