“Great photo stop”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Pictures don't do this place justice unless you have spent time here. Gorgeous drive and even a better photo op a mile right up the road looking back.

“Beautiful views!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

My wife always wanted to see this bridge, so I took her for her birthday. It's beautiful! Spectacular views both near the bridge and south of it. A must see if you are in the Monterey/Carmel area.

“Gorgeous Picture Stop!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

You can't cruise the Coast 1 without stopping at this spot for the picture! If you hit the bridge when the sun is out, it's breathtaking!

“Slightly fogged in, but spectacular”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We scrambled down the hill a bit to really get a sense of the structure. Great pass-thru cave if you look to your right. I actually liked the Big Creek Bridge better - you can get a better view of it.

“So Much to See on this Breath-Taking Highway”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The Big Sur Scenic Byway is known by several names, none of which are yet included as an attraction on Trip Advisor. Until the powers-that-be change that, I'll recommend every feature of this amazing 72-mile highway, including the Bixby Bridge. It is interesting to see--but be sure to take the time to enjoy everything before and after the bridge. The wild flowers of mid-summer are gorgeous and the fields that are home to Big Sur's lucky cows are peaceful (I'd sure love to be one of these moos with views!!) There is so much to see along this two-lane highway that my husband and I drove it three times in two days. Gorgeous!!
