“Breathtaking bike ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We rented bikes in Monterey and rode to Cypress Point. This does not have many hills and is a great way to take in the views along the coast. We were really glad we biked instead of just driving, it will always be a great memory. There is a restroom along the way and plenty of places to stop and take a break and photos.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

The coast is really beautiful, foggy or sunny! Watching people play golf with the waves hitting close by was amazing! Nature at its best. Beautiful scenery!

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Incredible every time we drive it. Just too hard to explain other than breathtaking. The air smells heavingly and sites are hard to fathom

“Beautiful no gorgeous drive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This drive was amazing for scenery takes most of the day but well worth it. Make sure to stop and see the elephant seals.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

What a ride along the Pacific coast finalizing with lunch overlooking the 18th hole at Pebble Beach. A must for anyone in the area.
