Pacific Grove begins at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and ends at the 17-Mile Drive gate. Within these limits are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing for those brave enough to pilot their boards through sharp reefs, kayaking for those in search of playful otters, incredible tide-pooling for the nature enthusiast and some of the most beautiful sunsets the Central Coast has to offer. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers a breathtaking view of paradise. The trail leads to the Monterey bay Aquarium, one of the world's largest and best showcases of marine life.
