This is a beautiful area with lots of "oohs" and "aahs". The ocean is mesmerizing. Take time to stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery...the water, sky, sea animals, landscaping.

Seventeen mile is gorgeous and that's no big secret... but instead of paying the silly gate fee ($17 bucks) go have breakfast or lunch in pebble beach... try the Bench for lunch and relax.
