17 Mile Drive is amazing but it is a not a must see when you are in the Monterey/Carmel area. The local attractions within the 17 Mile Drive area are the Lonely Cypress, Pebble Beach Golf Club and perhaps Spanish Bay Beach. If you just want to see Pebble Beach Golf Club, you can just drive there. The drive is... More

This was the first time I was ever on the western coast and the view was surreal. While the road was somewhat winding, it slowed the travel enough that not only the passenger but the driver could enjoy the view also. The stopping along the way to have a snack or just take in the sight was fantastic. Enjoying the... More

If you're looking for a way to spend an hour or 2, this drive is perfect. You drive up to the gate (and pay $10) and you're given a little brochure with some information on all the stops. Beautiful homes along the route, beautiful views and beaches and a really nice drive.

17 mile drive is absolutely beautiful! The coast line and the neighborhoods you go through are unreal. We decided we bike 17 mile drive with the recommendation from friends/family that it was easy and a fun ride. Well, I am going have to disagree about the ride being easy. It is a tough bike ride and is very hilly. The... More

With several stops along the way, there is lots to see on 17 mile drive. From the Lone Cyprus to Joe's Point and the Ghost Tree the drive is really full of all sorts of attractions. I recommend it. Beware there is a $10 fee at the start.

The first 7-8miles starting in Carmel wander through expensive neighborhoods nestled amongst a forest. While approaching the ocean, this is were the drive begins. Passing world famous golf courses, Spanish Bay, Spyglass, Cypress point and Pebble beach there is many viewing points, all different to stop for a few minutes to view. Seals, otters, and sometimes whale are visible. The... More

My husband was super keen to visit here as he is a big golfing fan. The coast line is beautiful, enjoyed the little snippets of history as you went round - just not sure why you had to pay??
