“Gorgeous Drive”

Seventeen Mile Drive
Ranked #5 of 117 things to do in Carmel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 May 2018

We actually stayed within 17 mile drive so had the opportunity to drive the route several times viewing all of the beautiful sites. Tough to pick a favourite, but Spanish Bay was right up there - the surf was mesmerizing. Of course Pebble Beach golf and the Lone Cypress and just the homes and twisting road through the gorgeous forest make for a peaceful tour of a very unique location. Watch for deer - especially early morning and at twilight.

When in California, you must take the drive down the Seventeen Mile, it is a once in a live time opportunity to see the views, the gorgeous scenery and to the famous road that has been in so many movies. It is absolutely breath taking.

The drive along the California Coast in this region is very pretty. We did a tour so did not have to worry about driving along the twisting road. As you drive along the highway the scenery changes. There is old growth forest, sandy hills, beaches, beautiful homes, golf courses and of course the ocean. There is a stop along the way to view some wildlife and of course a stop at the Peddle Beach Resort is a must if for nothing else than to see the golf course (you can access the 18th green by a path). The scenery is beautiful, the day had sun and our tour guide was very knowledgeable - it was a nice drive.
