  • Did the drive on a beautiful sunny day. Stopped at Pebble Beach for an outdoor lunch. This a wonderful half day stop over on our Pacific Coast Hway drive from San Francisco to San Diego.

  • A gorgeous drive along the Monterey coast! Beautiful costal views of the ocean throughout the drive. Plenty of sea birds in the sky and on Bird Island - sometimes you can even catch a sea lion or...

  • It is an amazing nature. A pleasure driving, stopping and walking and enjoying ‚Ķjust a heaven. Beautiful especially in April, all the flowers are in blossom. Sunset is beautiful. Only it would be great if the entrance payment would work for the whole day. We exit for lunch with my family and came back again, we paid again. ( a car entry costs $11.25)
  • Such a great drive! So mind relaxing and scenery is just amazing.. anyone trying to just clear their mind check this drive out. Lots to see from nice coves to animals birds and also great spot to take lots of photos.. last time we went we saw whales but kinda in a distance .. highly would recommend it
