Across from the hotels in Cambria, is the wildflower-lined Moonstone Beach Boardwalk, a narrow wooden boardwalk right above Leffingwell Cove. This is a rugged, windswept beach with large driftwood, kelp balls, and dark sand. It is very cold so bring a thick jacket. Kids like to play with the many sea treasures the rough waves wash onto the sand. This is a barren, dry coastline.

Drive a few minutes south to Nottingham Drive and you will find a cute neighborhood with adorable views over little coves. This is a great place for a walk, where you may see amazing purple ice plants on the cliffs.
There is live music at Linn's Cafe most Saturdays 1-4pm.
For a large playground, check out Shamel Park, where kids can listen to the ocean while they play.
For expensive restaurants in historic buildings, check out Cambria town.
Make sure you visit the unforgettable Hearst Castle, just 12 minutes north!
