17 Mile Drive

This is a "how long is a piece of string" question.

BUT....if taking the drive and stopping at most of the sights for a reasonably short time to take some photos, aprox how long will it take pls?

Depends...on traffic, number of stops, crowds at the scenic spots, lunch.

Without lunch, I'd set aside 1-1/2 hours. You don't want to rush it. If you are a golfer, you might want to spend time checking out the courses too.

I'd plan at least two hours with lunch. We like to pick up goodies at The Market. Peter Haye is a fun 9 hole course to play. It costs about $30 for unlimited play. Have fun! :).

The Market is indeed a good place to go, whether you want to consume the goodies right there at the bench outside or just bring it onto the road. If you go to a restaurant, allow 2+ hours.

At Pebble Beach golf course, you can walk down and get very close to the 18th green with a view of the fairway and the coast.
