Dear Carmel Residents and Visitors:
During this time, our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our community. Masks are required when out in public, and social distancing is strongly encouraged. Most businesses have re-opened with modifications. Restaurants are open for outdoor dining, takeout or delivery services with safety protocols in place, and require guests to wear masks upon entering and while being seated. Currently, INDOOR dining has been suspended in Monterey County until at least July 30. Reservations are recommended. See the list of Carmel-by-the-Sea restaurants offering take out here. We are working on a similar list of our surrounding area member restaurants. Currently, INDOOR wine tasting has been suspended as well, but most tasting rooms have outdoor tasting and still offer curbside pickup.
Carmel Beach is currently open for recreational purposes.
Our Chamber Office is open Monday - Friday (9am-5pm). Our Visitor Center is open Thursday - Friday (Noon-5pm) and Saturday - Sunday (Noon-4pm) through the end of July. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you soon!
