The Monterey Bay Sanctuary attracts divers from around the world: more than 65,000 of them visit each year. Lured by the unique beauty of the kelp forest and underwater canyon, divers also appreciate the good visibility and safe conditions. Monastery Beach and Stillwater Cove in Carmel; Bluefish and Whaler's Coves at Point Lobos; Monterey State, San Carlos and McAbee Beaches in Monterey, and Lover's Point in Pacific Grove are popular beach dives. Monterey has been rated as the best beach dive in the U.S., according to Scuba Diving magazine. Check with local dive centers for regulations.
