Breath-taking views, lots of ocean-side places to stop and walk, hike or watch wildlife such as deer, seals, sea lions. Wear sweat and sneakers, bring your camera and binoculars, and spend the day at these pull-overs. Especially exciting for golfers to see the courses they've only seen on TV. Incredible homes to drool over, too. All this for $10 or so!

Drive was scenic but no more scenic than the northern coastline, driven at no additional cost. This was only about $9.50 but the scenery was really no more beautiful than what you can see for free along the northern coast.

the drive on the 17 miles is beautiful, but you will have to pay a 9.90$ fee to pass the gate :(

This is definitely a must if you are in the Monterey Bay area. You pay $10.00 to take this scenic drive,but it is so worth it. Lots of places to stop and take pictures. We were here for about 21/2hrs before heading home and we were glad we took the time to take this drive. Just stunning !

The 17-mile drive allows you to see how the other half lives. gorgeous views. Take your time and explore the beautiful areas. It's nice that you can go at a leisurely pace. We got some great photos and lucked out with some beautiful weather.
