This was a beautiful drive with gorgeous views of cliffs and ocean. You'll be able to pull over to see small coves as well as larger expanses of beach. Not so much a bathing beach for me - too cool and windy - but beautiful...More

The drive along Route 1 is beautiful! The rugged coast is just a perfect spot to stop and enjoy the view. If you are lucky enough to find a painter along the way, you may leave with a beautiful picture of the view as well!
