Lovely drive and beaches and view points to stop at. Be sure to have a walk around Pebble Beach golf course, fabulous!

This was a neat and informative drive. It gave you a taste of luxury homes, gorgeous golf, ocean and sea/wild life views, and a good way to spend an afternoon.

There's nothing not to like about this drive...it's well worth the $10. gate fee to see this beautiful scenic area. We went 2 days in a row. (If you eat in a Pebble Beach restaurant and spend a minimum of $30.00, the restaurant will deduct the $10. gate fee off your food bill....just bring your gate receipt with you.)

Was probably more interesting to golfers as you pass several famous courses on the drive. Some of the scenery was lovely, but you can see more by following route 1 up the coast. If you are dazzled by the homes of the opulently rich, this is your scene. Go for it.

Glad to pay my 10 dollars, was very scenic and historic. Drive slo, stop at a few places because you might never see the serenity of the ocean like this again. Combine the greenery with the blue of the ocean and the pearly sand ....picture worthy

Nice coastline views, wildlife, golf courses and beautiful houses. Don't let the $10 fee discourage you. Worth doing but not a must.

This beautiful scenic drive is both relaxing and absolutely beautiful. The loop takes you through the community of Pebble Beach. If you're lucky, you can grab a round of golf or enjoy the beauty that is the coastline. My favorite stop along the route is the Lone Cypress. So peaceful and tranquil. If I could only build my house out... More

It's a long and winding road around the Bay. There are some beautiful views of the coast and back to Carmel, but you do have to contend with the other cars (of which there are many). If you are a golf enthusiast, it is a must. Note: there is a $10 charge to enter the park, but do it.

Costs 10 to make the drive. You wind around the coast from Carmel to Monterey. You have plenty of pull offs to enjoy the views. Speed is 25 and road has lots of turns. The houses are very lovely also. Takes you to pebble beach where you can shop and grab a light meal. Highly recommended.
