Pacific coast on one side and beautiful architecture on the other. Very nice afternoon drive in any weather. Several places to pull over along the coast and park; beautiful view and sunsets.

We love to drive Seventeen Mile Drive to see the nice houses, stop by the Pebble Beach to let the kids play with stones and watch the seabirds. Myself really enjoy stunning ocean views and beautiful waves crashing into shores. You will have to pay a little fee to drive the Seventeen Mile Drive though.

We spent about 3 hours driving through beautiful coast views, interesting and beautiful homes, lots of flora and fauna, and all of this took place on a gorgeous, sunny day! There are a few places where the signage for the drive is a little confusing - so be careful.

17 mile drive is $10 and if you turn the wrong way went entering you will drive about 10 miles of forrest - pretty boring. Just make sure you drive by Pebble Beach and stay out of the forrest.

You don't drive it. You stop along the way. Pebble Beach and Spyglass are destinations. The Bench at Pebble Beach or The Lodge at Spy Glass have terrific views with outdoor seating. Worth the stop. There also a few pull outs that put you near the water. The homes on the drive defy description. The cost is $10.25 but most... More

Don't miss the opportunity to drive through the 17-Mile Drive, the scenery is stunning!! Met a friend for lunch, did some shopping and then drove along the 17-Mile Tour route to gaze at the beautiful scenery before heading back to my hotel in Carmel.

We stopped at all the typical spots along the way but they were all worth the time. Lighthouse, Lone Cypress Tree, Carmel Beach.

This was a beautiful drive. We stopped at several of the points of interest. Huckleberry Hill, Spanish Bay, Bird Rock, Fanshell Overlook, Cypress Point Lookout, and The Lone Cypress are well worth the stop. Got some awesome photos. We also saw lots of marine life..harbor seals, sea lions, birds, and a whale at the Lone Cypress. Lots of beautiful homes... More

Driving past the front yards of the 1%ers is an interesting experience. Though we are grateful that the coastal commission managed to keep this astonishingly beautiful piece of coast open to the public, we were less excited about having to pay to gaze upon the privileged mansions and their lawns. Neverheless, the views are spectacular so it is worth the... More
