Absolutely my favorite Monterey beach dive. It has very dense marine life which changes quite markedly with depth. On a good day the visibility is like in the tropics. If you like diving deep, this is your beach, it's essentially bottomless since the Carmel Canyon comes to about 300 yards from the beach. I (try to!) dive here at least once a week. Dive masters: train your dive party on how to do entries and exits on steep beaches with rough surf; I see lots of people roll here when there was no reason for it to happen other than inexperience. The First Lesson of Monastery Beach: Know your limits and stick to them!
