Pacific Grove: Lesser-known spot offers plenty to enjoy

The sunset bargains — from the sand dabs almondine to the bacon-wrapped meat loaf, at just $9.90 — pack the Beach House at Lovers Point as soon as it opens at 4 p.m. (deals stop after 5:30 p.m.). The idyllic and adjacent peninsular park boasts lawns, benches, a community pool, a snack bar and protected cove beaches that draw kids, surfers and scuba divers. But the actual sunset is foxier on the other side of Pacific Grove, back at Asilomar or, better yet, at neighboring Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, where the bagpiper plays at dusk, good snacks and drinks are standard, and large fire pits and big benches encourage lingering.
