Carmel Destination Guide

Flights To Carmel

Located along California's iconic Highway 1 and just 4 miles south of Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea sits right beside the mighty Pacific Ocean. It boasts dramatic views, pristine beaches, and a charming downtown filled with art galleries, boutiques, and cafes. Add in a world-class wine scene and intriguing cultural sites, and you have a destination worthy of high praise. Another good thing is that flights to Carmel, CA can land at one of three airports: Monterey Regional Airport (MRY), San Jose International Airport (SJC), or San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The wealth of travel options means you have the choice of arriving at your luxury.

Transportation from MRY, SJC, and SFO

For your Carmel flights landing in Monterey, know you are just 6 miles from the center of Carmel. You can take a bus (Monterey-Salinas Transit), but you do have a bit of a walk to get to the bus stop from the airport. Also, you can rent a car near baggage claim or hail a taxi outside the arrivals level. From San Jose International Airport, you'll be 77 miles from Carmel. Your best bet is to get a vehicle at the rental car center, which is located across from Terminal B. The same goes for San Francisco International Airport, which is 110 miles from Carmel. Rental cars are available on North McDonnell Road near the airport and accessible via SFO's Air Train. Once you arrive at one of the hotels in Carmel, drop off your bags, and start exploring. Sights like the beautiful Carmel Mission, stunning Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, and the famous Tor House await.
