San Simeon / Cambria Hotel

Moonstone Beach

Moonstone Beach and Moonstone Beach Boardwalk are can’t miss activities when visiting Cambria. Sink your toes in the sand and stroll the soft sandy beach while taking in stunning ocean views. Moonstone Beach features a hiking trail along the bluffs, through a eucalyptus grove, and through San Simeon State Park campground.

Nitt Witt Ridge

A fun contrast to the regal style of Hearst Castle, Nitt Witt Ridge is a kitschy house sitting on 2.5 acres. Featuring daily tours, the house is a folk-art attraction that has a romantic yet sad history. Constructed by a garbage collector the house is made of natural minerals and debris like old beer cans, washer drums, and auto parts.

Shamel Park

A scenic six-acre park with stunning ocean views. Shamel Park is fun for the whole family and offers an outdoor swimming pool, picnic tables, barbecue grills, access to the beach and plenty of open lawn space for fun activities like horseshoes, volleyball, or croquet.

Leffingwell Landing

A local favorite, Leffingwell Landing is just north of Moonstone Beach and features breathtaking scenery at every turn. The perfect spot for a picnic, the area has a small beach where the sand is made up of tiny dark pebbles, adding to the dramatic nature of the beach.
