What a wonderful drive. Highlights were the Lone Cypress and Pebble Beach. Had late lunch at Pebble Beach overlooking the 18th hole - amazing. Take your time and enjoy the sights. Would definitely do again.

The view is breath breaking around lonely tree. Take picnic basket, hanging out on the beach is nice. The area is nice.

17 Mile Drive is a picturesque tourist drive. It has amazing scenery with 5 golf courses and many ocean stops along the way. For only $10, it is great value for money and we highly recommend it for visitors to Monterey. It took us about 1.5 to 2 h so allow plenty of time for stops and photos!

We drove the 17 mile drive twice because we got off at Carmel, and found it very hard to get back on. 'the ocean scenery is as fine as it gets, together with the hemlocks and other trees. But watch out for the bicyclists on this narrow and winding road, who often display very bad manners.

After reading the reviews, we were not sure if it would be worth taking the 17 mile drive. The views were amazing and I appreciated having directions of specific places to stop and information about what we were seeing. My husband was absolutely giddy about being able to walk right up to the golf holes for Spanish Bay and able to hit the pro shop and see some holes at Pebble Beach. It was worth our $9 for sure.
