Oh my goodness - if I won the megamillions lottery - I'd be there tomorrow!! You really miss something if you don't walk down this road!

Beautiful walkway along the stunning beach of Carmel By the Sea, among amazing Monterey cypress trees, more gorgeous here than in Pebble Beach. Bring your camera and your flip-flops for a stroll on the beach or your running shoes. The amazing architecture of some of the cottages facing the ocean is an attraction in its own right.

Amazing views! The Big Sur itself is wonderful, and the Scenic Road will not leave you without the impression!

This is an example of a FREE wonderful attraction. Park your car (for FREE!) anywhere along the roadway or on an adjacent street and stroll. Gorgeous views of the beach and ocean on one side of the road, and beautiful (EXPENSIVE!) homes on the other side of the road, some with interesting landscaping and/or architectural details. Public restrooms available in... More

Wear your best hiking shoes. Pack a backpack of fresh sandwiches, fruit and plenty of water so you can stay for hours. (Ask the hotel restaurant for a few portable salads to-go.) Take a hike. Choose a boulder, spread out your feast and enjoy!

Lovely drive mostly around the beach. Great views or the bay and the charming (or overbuilt) Carmel beach houses. A few places to park and get out, but not many.

Pretty one way road going south in Carmel. Nice houses, nice view of beach. Just south of Martin Way is a Frank Lloyd Wright house (private-no tours) on the right. It looks like a ship. You kind of have to look back to see it well. At the end of this road is the Carmel Mission, a don't miss mission.

The unique houses and gardens were magnificent. The beach excellent for sunrise and sunset colors, dolphins surfing, nice long walks on white sandy beaches. A bit cold for me in June for swimming.

Carmel’s Scenic Drive has been terribly mis-named. The truth: no car required! Park anywhere on nearby residential streets --or along the drive itself-- to experience one of THE prime ocean view promenades in this world. The walk along and above the white sand beach under towering Monterey Cypress trees with their wind-sculptured shapes, is simply breath-taking. Of practical note: "The... More
