Pacific Grove Shoreline Management Plan
Protecting and enhancing your shoreline
Pacific Grove’s shoreline is a special place. It features parks, trails, beach areas, panoramic views and opportunities for wildlife sightings, among many other amenities. Understandably, it is a source of much local pride and a popular regional attraction.
At the same time, the area faces a number of challenges. It hosts sensitive natural and historic resources, as well as vital infrastructure, which require careful protection. Perhaps more seriously, it experiences continual erosion from winter storms, wave action and other natural processes.
