Seventeen Mile Drive

If you have a car this is a must to do. The entrance fee is $10 but you get this back if you dine at Pebble. Lots of places to stop and look at the scenery and take photos.

We took the 17 mile drive and we enjoyed the amazing views of the ocean. We are not golfers, but the course views very beautiful.

We were staying in the area and decided to drive to Carmel via the 17 mile drive. It was well worth the expense. The views were majestic and there were opportunities to pull off at designated sightseeing areas. We loved seeing seals and spent about an hour enjoying them. My husband appreciated the Lone Cypress and Pebble Beach golf course.... More

A great way to spend half a day, great views, golf courses and luxurious homes. Drive slowly through this privately owned state, pick up the brochure and stop at all the marked points. Very interesting and relaxing visit

My hubby and I took this drive first in the early evening after dinner and stopped at a few places to enjoy the scenery and enjoyed it all so much that we drove it again the next day after lunchtime. We grabbed a snack to take with us while in Carmel and made a stop along the route and ate... More

if you are someone who likes to be close to the sea and spend time just watching waves... this is a nice drive, with a few spots to just chill out, put chair down and watch the waves break against the rocks. lone cypress point was also beautiful.

Always a good drive, anytime of the year. So many places to see and very picturesque. It is also good to take my father who grew up here and remembers the days of before. The stories of the lone Cyprus, before it was roped off and the drive itself before it was a tourist venue. Very interesting.

The drive includes both a coastal section, and an upland forested section. Skip the upland section unless you have a reason to go there, like to visit a residence there. Otherwise, focus on the spectacular coastal section with classic and timeless vistas and quite a few luxurious residences. This is a very special place, so tread lightly and observe all... More
