Monterey is a waterfront community on the central coast of California with a temperate climate year-round. Kayaking, scuba diving, surfing, whale watching and lazing on the beach are just some of the activities to be enjoyed in and around this beautiful area.

Attractions here include Golf, shopping, and scenic drives, the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, a must-see attraction that delights and educates millions of visitors every year, Cannery Row, where John Steinbeck drew inspiration for his novel about life in Monterey during the heyday of the sardine canning industry.

Today “the Row” is lined with hotels, shops and restaurants and features fun activities for all the family. From Cannery Row, you can walk or ride a rented surrey along the scenic Recreation Trail to Fisherman`s Wharf. Along the way, you`ll see harbour seals, sea otters and pelicans in natural habitats on the dazzling waterfront of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
