This drive is easily worth the $10 fee. It provides spectacular views of the ocean with the occasional whale passing by. The beaches and the nice flora are inviting for walks and scenic picnics.

Beautiful drive with cypress trees and waves crashing! Only downside is it $10 to take this drive and to enter pebble beach area.

This was the best $10 I have ever spent in my life. The views of the ocean, the homes and the woods were all incredible. I recommend packing a lunch and picking a bench to relax on.

Great walks on the beach. Whale watching a must. Lots of places to explore and very easy to find parking.

So many photo opportunities along this drive. Well worth the few hours spent. Have lunch at Pebble Beach GC overlooking the 18th hole. It's breathtaking. Spanish bay is spectacular too!

Really beautiful drive. $10 fee is well worth it. There are immaculate golf courses, lovely homes, and of course the gorgeous ocean and seaside. Wonderful opportunities for photos.

I don't know about you, but I'll never be able to afford a mansion overlooking the ocean. This being said, you can have this experience for a very low fee at 17-Mile Drive. The views are absolutely incredible and there is plenty to see. Try to be there at Sunset with someone you love. You will fall in love all... More

Absolutely loved this drive. Spectacular ocean views. It was nice seeing sections of various golf courses and the broad range of interesting houses in the area. There is a $10 fee to enter the 17 mile scenic drive - totally worth it.
