The most beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean you'll ever see. Take your time but have somebody else drive.

This is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline anywhere. Good access to explore some tide pools. Be there for sunset. But in the winter. Can be bumper to bumper traffic on summer weekends.

We've done this several times and always enjoyable. Different weather simply means a different look and feel. More for adults than young kids.

THIS IS A DO NOT MISS! Rent a car if you need one, but do. not. miss. this. Ocean waves, seabirds, coastal splendor, and the homes here are worth seeing! Mansions set on a spectacular golf course, stop in the Pebble Beach club, have a drinks, food, there's a market ripe with picnic supplies, wine, coffees, everybody seems really nice... More

Its hard to say anything not already covered by many of the other reviews. The narrow winding road wanders through beautiful forest scenery and spectacular ocean views. See attached pictures, none of which compare to being there. Throw in equally spectacular megamansions of the one per cent and your jaw will drop over and over. A must see, and then... More

Spend the $10 and take the extra time. The drive is well worth it. Beautiful scenery, with nice homes that you could only dream about buying (at least in my case).

Don't pay for a tour if you don't have to. The drive is spectacular, worth the $10 entrance fee (and $100+ souvenir stop at Pebble Beach Golf Course). By far the best experience in my 45 years, besides my two children. The views are breathtaking, and you want to stop when you want and take pics. Allow time, we ate... More

We got here very early in the morning at Pacific Grove and stopped at many of the scenic points. It is very beautiful. I prefer other parts of this area like point lobos state park and big sur because I would rather see nature than big homes. Still the sea here is stunning and the views. It costs $10 and... More
