Carmel-by-the-Sea, often simply called Carmel, is a city in Monterey County, California, United States, founded in 1902 and incorporated on October 31, 1916. Discover out-of-the-way places like Point Lobos and Pfeiffer State Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Carmel River State Beach and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get out of town with these interesting Carmel side-trips: Big Sur (McWay Falls & Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Asilomar State Beach, do a tasting at Joullian Vineyards & Winery, and explore the activities along Monterey Bay.
