“very good but dont rush”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

It is well worth the time but don't rush as the views are fantastic. we paid but some people just drove past the barriers unchallenged. Make sure its not a foggy day or your trip may not be worth it.

“17 miles of beauty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

What can u say? This has got to be one of the most beautifUl rides there can be! And who lives in those homes there? We were staying in Carmel so got off there and didn't quite see it all but that's ok . Didn't know there were several entrance points so didn't start from the golf course, sorry I missed pebble beach.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Luckily, we went on a cool, clear day and were able to see the views. It was well worth the drive. The ocean vistas are spectacular. The houses are beautiful. Makes one want to live there.

“Nice view, not worth the 10 bucks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We did this drive on our way from Carmel to Yosemite. Its a nice drive, but its not really worth the $10 entry unless you love golf courses and seeing security gates for mansions. The drive from point lobos south is way nicer and its free!

“Over rated but nice drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

There is a $9.00 vehicle fee to enter the 17 mile drive since it is privately owned - we were surprised. Views are spectacular with stops at the lone cypress tree and pebble beach. Most of the drive includes partial views of homes rather than views of the ocean or beach. Driving it once is good - probably not doing it again.
