Travel + Leisure named Carmel-by-the-Sea one of the "Top 15 Cities in the United States" in 2020, and Country Living magazine said the town "looks like something out of a fairytale"—and we couldn't agree more. Carmel offers an astonishing variety of things to do, see, listen to, buy, eat, and experience, including incredible museums, shops, wine, the historic Carmel Mission, and fairytale cottages and galleries in its village-like center. The Scenic Bluff Path runs from Carmel Beach (both dog friendly and great for surfing) to the birders paradise of Carmel River State Beach, and in just a few minutes you can be on the famous 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. Our hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California is just a short walk to all that downtown Carmel has to offer from great restaurants, galleries, and shops, and more. Come explore from your tranquil home base at Tradewinds Carmel!
