So glad we did this iconic trip and had lunch on 18th hole at Pebble Beach. Lovely! The whole drive is a delight. Your entry fee is refunded if you eat/ shop at any of the golf courses along the way.

Highly disappointed in this drive. If you like to view homes of the wealthy, go for it. When we realized what was involved, we couldn't wait to exit the drive.

17-mile drive is well worth the time. Parking lots at each of the lookout points are adequate. The views are fantastic. My daughter and I really enjoyed climbing on rocks and we got lots of good pictures.

This is a must for every visit. The drive is pleasant and the views on a sunny day are breathtaking. Parking is strategically located and ample. A day on the beach wouldn't be a bad idea too. Entrance fee is US$10.25 if I remember.

17 miles drive is a must. It never disappoints, many vistas, nice views on a gorgeous scenery (both the ocean/beaches and cedar trees).

We enjoy this drive every time. One never knows what one will find along the way. There are a great variety of sea birds. You can see them on huge rocks near the shore, close enough to take photos. There are also both sea lions...More

Yes, I believe the closest place to rent bikes is at Lovers Point Park (Adventures by the Sea). Also, bikes can ride the road for free!
