The beautiful surf and the white sand is a sight to behold.

History of Carmel-by-the-Sea: Carmel-by-the-Sea was initially a small artist’s community. Its location near the ocean, river, mountains, and groves made it the quintessential town of inspiration for artists of all artistic styles including painters, sculptors, photographers, and writers. Today, the quaint little town of Carmel draws a large number of visitors from all over the world.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium mission has been to inspire conservation of the oceans. Today, the aquarium is even more popular.

With more than 35,000 creatures representing over 550 species in nearly 200 exhibits filling 34 major galleries it is a showcase for the habitats and sea life of one of the world’s richest marine regions. The aquarium has grown to become one of the leading ocean conservation organizations in the world.
