The Best of Cambria & the Central Coast
Our Local Attractions & Activities
Escape your daily routine with a relaxing getaway to beautiful Cambria, California - offering plenty of fun attractions and activities, just minutes from our hotel. From wine tasting to world-famous Hearst Castle to boutique shopping in downtown Cambria, chances are you’ll find what you’re looking for (and more) at Oceanpoint Ranch.
Explore the Sparkling Shores of Moonstone Beach
When you stay at Oceanpoint Ranch, take our private beach trail to the 1-mile boardwalk that meanders along the coast of Moonstone Beach. And, we're just a short walk from Leffingwell’s Landing, and the start of Hearst San Simeon State Park - a state picnic ground that features tide pools and great wildlife viewing opportunities.
See World-Famous Hearst Castle
Nestled just 6 miles north of the Ranch, we invite you to discover architectural marvel along the Central Coast. Built over 28 years by Julia Morgan under the direction of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, this world-famous estate features European-inspired styles that Hearst admired during his early travels around Europe with his mother. The castle features 56 bedrooms, 61 bathrooms, 19 sitting rooms, 127 acres of gardens, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, a movie theater, an airfield, and the world's largest private zoo.
Sip Your Way Through Paso Robles Wine Country
Paso Robles is home to some of the best wineries in the state, covering more than 25,000 acres of California wine country. Whether you prefer red or white, the area surrounding our hotel offers something unique for every wine lover. The area is also home to a number of annual events, including the Zinfandel Festival, Grand Tasting Tour, Wine Festival, CRAVE, and Harvest Wine Weekend.
Travel from San Simeon to Cambria to Harmony, and discover the Central Coast's new wine trail, the Pacific Coast Wine Trail, where you'll enjoy hand-crafted wines from six small producers along the scenic coast. This trail includes Hearst Ranch Winery, Black Hand Cellars, Moonstone Cellars, Twin Coyotes Winery, Stolo Family Vineyard, and Harmony Cellars.
See Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery
Come up close and personal with the gentle giants of the sea - elephant seals - at Piedras Blancas. Offering year-round viewing and public access, it's one of the best places to view these unique 5,000-pound marine mammals.
Glass-Making & Wine-Tasting in Harmony
The quaint village of Harmony is located just south of Cambria and is the headquarters to one of America’s finest glassmakers, Carl Radke, the proprietor of Phoenix Studios and Glassworks. This respected public figure features the most original objects of art in the region. Wine tasting can also be enjoyed in the town of Harmony.
