Great place for a walk, bike ride or picture taking. Some of the most beautiful views from the Central Coast of California.

“A walk before breakfast or a walk to walk off breakfast- your choice!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

It's just an iconic cliff top walk with views of the surfers below in Monterey Bay and groups of sea lions on the rocks barking away.

Reviewed 13 August 2014

A great place to walk, ride bikes or drive through neighbors and look a gorgeous homes. There is even a free surf museum. Lots of seating and the views are breath taking. A must see.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Great drive. It is about 3 miles long. So this is an area you can easily walk or ride bikes. I prefer to ride my bike along this area. There is a paved sidewalk that runs the entire length of west cliff dr., making it an easy ride. Beautiful views of the ocean and sometimes if you are lucky, you will see a school of dolphins.

“So pretty!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We drove down this lovely street to enjoy the views and look at the lovely houses in envy. :) Unless you are planning to go to the boardwalk (very end of the drive), turn off or you will be stuck in gobs of traffic forever! If you DO plan to visit the boardwalk area, turn off, park up top and walk down----much faster! Loved this drive and got some nice pics!
