This was the final stop on our drive from San Francisco along Hwy 1. The views are breathtaking and iconic. Make sure you stop further along up the hill and look back at the bridge too!

This is an amazing part o Highway 1. If you're doing the drive you must stop see! The bridge is so pretty eighths ocean hitting the rocks underneath. You might have a hard time parking because so many people stop here so just be patient.

In the short 26 years I've had the great pleasure of living in the Monterey area, i have never found peace like I have, and still do find at bixby. It, much like its surroundings is iconic of this beautiful area.

The road along the Big Sur was largely closed due to the storms and the bridge at Pfieffer Creek collapsing, so we could not drive along Highway 1 as we had intended. we did however go south as far as Bixby Creek, which gives a...More
