This was my third time on the 17 Mile Drive. It is gorgeous and a must do when you visit Carmel By-The-Sea and Monterey. There is a small fee of $10.00 but the scenery is well worth it! There are multiple vista points and even places to picnic. Don't miss the Lone Cypress. It stands on a hillside in Pebble... More

This was my second visit to the 17 mile drive. It is absolutely beautiful!! This time around we went later in the day, so the fog had diminished. Make sure not to miss the Lone Cypress. There is a small fee of $10, but you have access to the world famous Pebble Beach golf course.

It's a must stop place! Nice beaches, birds and sea lion. Can't go wrong with that 10$ fee! We only did the costal road from Monterey to Carmel.

If you want to experience the best of California with limited time, this is the place. Beautiful ocean views with pebble stones and cypress tress. All this for just $10.

We suggest that everyone take this scenic drive. Pull off and watch the waves. There are many places to stop along the way including the golf resorts and shopping areas.

Loved this trip. The highlight was our stop at the Pebble Beach Golf Resort. I was surprised how access to this venue was so flexible. We had lunch on the porch on the ground floor overlooking the 18th green. The cost was very reasonable and the 10$ entry to the drive is deductible from your bill. Nice place to sit... More

We were driving to Carmel from SFO and decided to take the scenic detour of a part of the 17 mile drive. Turns out you pay $10!!! So we decided to do a little extra and really most of the views are blocked because they are private homes with high hedges or walls. Completely understandable that folks want their privacy......

If you want to experience an area as beautiful as any in the world, take a leisurely drive on Seventeen Mile Drive. The small price charged at the entry gate is well worth the heavenly views. Gorgeous homes along the way, the lone cypress, ocean vistas and of course stop in to Pebble Beach Resort for a drink or something... More
