Charming Cambria is a village by the sea—not a beach town. Most people know it as the gateway to Hearst Castle, just 11 miles up the San Luis Obispo County coast. But even without its famous neighbour, Cambria`s creative vibe and its setting—beautiful pine forests and open space along a craggy stretch of the California coast—make it an irresistible destination in its own right. Folks who visit Cambria enjoy wine tasting and at night, a stroll along the boardwalk to watch the sunset from Moonstone Beach, a walk along the dramatic Bluff Trail at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve and of course visits to the Hearst Castle.
