Plenty of amazing ocean views. And wildlife. Look for deer in the woods. Egrets everywhere. And sea lions on the ocean rocks. A fun drive and make time to stop along the way to enjoy.

It is wonderful that pebble beach allows the public to view this drive. It was one of the most amazing experiences we had in the Monterey area.

From the sea views & the beautiful area we loved the drive. The amount of places to pull off and walk, take pictures & have a picnic we’re a wonderful treat. If you are in the area, it is worth the stop for sure.

The drive was so beautiful!!! The audio app did not work well for us, but when it did it was very informative. Make sure you bring cash to pay at the kiosk. I believe it was $10.25.

If you are in the Monterey/Carmel area then you simply must do this drive if you can. Breath-taking scenery, bracing sea breezes mixed with the Californian sun, and the opportunity to visit some amazing, world renowned golf courses including the beautiful Pebble Beach Links. When...More

This is an excellent activity if you want to enjoy nature and still be in the car, for example, for families with small children and senior members. But, it is very windy. Bring extra layers and bring food. There are only two spots where you...More
