Following the coastline, Carmel-by-the-Sea’s Scenic Road is true to its name. Follow Ocean Ave west from CA-1 until Scenic Road, and follow it along past Carmel River State Beach until Carmel City Beach.

To head back to CA-1, at the end of Scenic Road you will turn onto Carmelo Street. Continue about a half of a mile until you turn right onto Santa Lucia Street. In another half of a mile, turn right on Rio Street and you in under a mile, you will be back on CA-1.
