Monterey, Carmel and 17-Mile Drive - Full Day Tour from San Francisco

1,421 reviews
Running along the Pacific coastline in California, Highway 1’s route involves plenty of twists and turns. Rather than dealing with the stress of driving it on your own, take this Monterey and Carmel tour that allows you to keep your eyes on the spectacular views. It includes round-trip transportation from San Francisco, and you can even add an optional admission ticket to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

One of the best beaches in all of California. It is easy to get to, located just south of Davenport. When you see the fin coming out of the water, then you will quickly realize where it got its name.

Worth the stop - we parked at the Bonny Doon parking lot. No parking fees. There’s a hike down to the cove for a walk through it and a close up view of the fin. The whole area is beautiful and there were a lot of people in the water. If you like train tracks, then this is a must stop. The tracks line the bluff and looks really cool with the brush and sand.

I made a trip down the coast on highway one, stopping at many points along the way - this was one of the most memorable, and with great views. Things to note: *The stop itself can last anywhere from 15 minutes to hours. It's not a huge area to explore, but there's a lot of beauty and you might want to just soak it in. *To take full advantage of the place, you'll have to do a little climbing. It's not too tough - my 69 year old father made the scramble down without any issues. *Way more interesting at low tide. At high tide much of the cove isn't accessible. *The temperature is a bit lower in the cove than the surrounding area. I loved it, and I saw some people wearing bathing suits - but I'd assume the average person would want to bring a light jacket.

People trash this beautiful cove, it's such a beautiful place but the local government has no trash cans which doesn't help with the trash problem here.
