Cambria: The seaside hamlet with charm that won’t quit.

Moonstone Beach

Hunt for sea treasures on Moonstone Beach.

  • Want to get in touch with your inner treasure-hunter? Wave-worn “moonstones” cover this beach and entice seaglass hunters of all ages to sift its sands.
  • For a dramatic entrance, walk the gentle Moonstone Beach Boardwalk, an ADA-compliant one-mile path along the beach.
  • Wildlife abounds here with gray whales, humpback whales, dolphins, seabirds and otters at play.
  • Relax at nearby Shamel Park, whose facilities include day-use areas, a children's playground, restrooms and a heated ADA-compliant swimming pool. Bring a picnic, a birding guide, a sweater, and a sense of adventure!

Covell’s California Clydesdale Ranch

Roam free with the horses.

  • Do you yearn to run with the horses? Covell’s California Clydesdale Ranch is home to a herd of 100 freely-roaming majestic Clydesdale horses.
  • The 2,000-acre ranch is made possible through a nature conservation easement, with views of a Monterey Pine forest, glimpses of the ocean, and pristine pastures.
  • Tours of the 2,000-acre property are available in the ranch’s open-air trailer, or on horseback, and discuss the annual rodeo, party and open-pit barbecue held on the ranch in the 1890s with the Hearst Family as benefactor.

Linn's Restaurant

Taste the famous olallieberry.

  • Ready to taste Cambria’s heritage berry, bursting with flavor? The olallieberry (pronounced oh-la-leh) is a cross between a Youngberry and a Loganberry, and is in the same ballpark as a blackberry. The name derives from a Native American word for “berry.”
  • The olallieberry is the most widely-grown fruit at Linn’s Family Fruit Farm, which is open to the public on picturesque Santa Rosa Creek Road.
  • Olallieberries feature in Linn’s famous jams, sauces and, most beloved of all, in Linn’s famous olallieberry pie, available at Linn’s Restaurant.
  • In May every year, Cambria holds the Olallieberry Festival, and every Fourth of July, Linn’s presents an old-timey pie-eating contest.

Walking Tour

Walk Cambria’s historic streets.

  • Cambria’s history has been painstakingly preserved by a dedicated band of volunteers at the Historical Society, which brings the town’s history to life with an easy, self-guided historical walking tour.
  • The tour showcases historic homes, storefronts and places of worship dating back to the 1870s spanning 28 stops and multiple architectural styles in Cambria’s historic East Village.
  • Start at the Guthrie-Bianchini House, now the Cambria Historical Museum, for exhibits, information and a charming garden patio.
