Monterey, California: Historic Cannery Row and John Steinbeck Walking Tour
InterContinental Clement Monterey Hotel / C Restaurant
Just ahead is the exceptional C restaurant, where every seat offers a stunning view of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
Before you get to the front door of the restaurant, turn right and walk to the right of the outdoor dining area of the C restaurant on the public coastal access path.
Keep walking straight toward the water. Stop at the cut-out area of the opening in the deck. I will meet you there.
Coastal access laws in California require that all new development maintain a public access to areas that were traditionally open to the public for right-of-way to the water. For years, Cannery Row was mostly vacant lots, thus there was an easy public access to the water. So, all the new hotels, restaurants and the Monterey Bay Aquarium have public paths to the water, a wonderful feature.
