A good car ride down a road in a private condominium. Gorgeous views points. You will travel very close to the beach and watch sea lions. Worth it for anyone visiting the charming Carmel and willing to pay U$ 10.00.

Visited as part of a trip last September!

Wow what an incredible drive - the views are magnificent and the pictures that can be taken are wonderful.

We even got a stop of at pebble beach :)

Although there was an entrance fee it was well worth it. The tree lined road at the beginning and end sections was pretty but the remaimder of the drive was full of breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean with many vista points to pull over and admire the scenery. There were ground squirrels running round the car parks and out to sea were many birds. Also sea lions and seals on the rocky outcrops. Roughly half way round there was a clean toilet block, a log building which blended into the landscape. We also saw deer by the roadside on one of the exclusive golf courses and at every turn there were beautiful houses which must have belonged to millionaires! Don't miss this drive if you are in the area.

This was a nice drive through the beautiful Monterrey area. It was nice to stop by a beach and walk along the boardwalk. Stopped at Pebble Beach and enjoyed seeing the 18th hole. The shopping at the hotel was nice merchandise that was way overpriced.

A must see if you go! Amazing views. Cost was $10 dollars and you were given a guide with information on each stop. This was easy to follow as they painted red lines in the road to follow.
