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.

Nice drive around Pebble Beach with views of Spanish Bay course. be adventurous and stray off the main road for some interesting views.

Need to take the time to make the drive. It's beautiful! Go early and avoid the crowds that accumulate later in the day. Highly suggest taking a picnic lunch, a couple of chairs, and just sitting on the beach.

This will be the best $10 you ever spent. Drive on over to Pebble Beach and eat in the restaurants and they will credit your $10 towards your meal.
