Can't beat it

I know a lot of people prefer Carmel or Big Sur but I have always been partial to PG. Grest views but still close to town plus the tidepools!

I walk this route every day when visiting. Breathtaking views and beautiful homes. Way better than the 17 mile drive weather walking or driving!

Beautiful walk. Seals and wildlife. Little traffic. This is just right. What a wonderful place to relax. The landscape is just stunning. Romantic, even for middle aged folks!

The scenery is much better along Ocean View Boulevard if going from Monterey to 17 Mile Drive. Take Lighthouse Avenue through downtown Pacific Grove, turn right on 17th Street, then left on Ocean View Boulevard. After a few miles the Boulevard becomes Sunset Drive. Follow Sunset for about 5 miles and turn right onto 17 Mile Drive.

Right along the ocean. Park your car at one end and walk to the other end and back. Great scenery and views. Depending on the time of year you will probably see different sealife (otters, seals, etc.) Good restaurants right along the road so you can stop for a drink, snack, or meal.

The road croses 17 mile drive in several places and is just as beautiful. You have the ocean on one side and the charming homes on the other, many have been for nearly a hundred years

Great place to walk or drive along the ocean from Monterrey through Pacific grove and towards Carmel. Stunning views and activities along the sea front . We had cloudy weather with rough seas but it was very atmospheric .

Checkout the lovely beach houses whilst you walk along the seafront. Nice rocks and white sands make it all very inviting for fishermen kids and general public. Very pretty place to stroll and watch the sunset on a beautiful day.

We stopped a few times to watch the birds and scuba divers. Parking is convenient to take-in this picturesque coastline.
