Situated on the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel-by-the-Sea (often simply called Carmel) is known for its natural scenery and rich artistic history. This quaint amalgamation of art galleries, boutiques, hotels, shops, fine restaurants and whimsically styled homes evokes a storybook ambiance that can be appreciated by romantics of all ages.  Carmel-by-the-Sea is in an area permeated by Native American, Spanish, Mexican and American history. Europeans first settled in Carmel-by-the-Sea in 1771, when Father Junipero Serra established the Carmel Mission.   Carmel-by-the-Sea's rugged coastline, featuring both sandy beaches and rocky, cypress-covered outcroppings, has provided inspiration for artists of every stripe.
