It is well worth the time to see the beautiful coast line and the wonderful homes. We enjoyed stopping at Pebble Beach and walking around.

Yes, it's a beautiful drive, and do it once if you have to. It's a toll road on the beautiful California coast and totally unnecessary. There's nothing on it that you can't see for free by just driving the Coast. If you ever feel like dropping a bundle and eating at the Pebble Beach Restaurant, or the Hawaiian place, make... More

It's as beautiful as you imagine it is. You can't believe the natural beauty as well as the opulence of this community. The ocean, the cypress trees - it will form a memory not soon forgotten.

Love, love, love the 17-mile drive. I have taken guests on this scenic and peaceful tour over 5 times and I still never get tired of it. Must see if no time to drive to Big Sur. Something for everyone, sea lions for the children, golf courses for the golf enthusiasts, beautiful ocean and interesting landmarks like the lone cypress.... More

Just a gorgeous scenic drive. Kind of crazy during peak events at Pebble Beach (Concours, AT&T Pro Am, etc.) but gorgeous scenery, views and homes!

Do not go to the area without taking the Seventeen Mile Drive! My sister-in-law recommended it or we might have missed it. Head to the beach on Ocean Dr. and follow the signs... you will NOT be disappointed!

Wow, wow and more wow! Well worth every dollar of the $10 charge to get in. The route is clearly marked (follow the red striped down the middle). If you love stunning scenery, crashing waves, windswept beaches, seals and sea otters - oh and the occasional 'how the other half live' houses - then you won't be disappointed. There are... More

point joe has easy parking near roadside, almost white sand, picnic tables mostly not in the shade. instead of the planned few minutes, we stayed almost 2 hours for our gran'daughter's attempted fort-building with the beautiful huge pebbles. it was surprisingly warm when most of norcal coast is still freezing in august. balance of 17mile drive was beautiful too.
