Considered one of the most scenic drives anywhere in the world, the 17 Mile Drive runs through Del Monte Forest. It’s relaxing, refreshing and a tad windy (when we were there anyway)
Amazing photo ops at every turn including Lone Cypress, Seal and Bird Rocks, Fanshell Beach, Point Joe and the colliding currents of The Restless Sea. It is the natural habitat of the black cormorants, brown pelicans, California sea otters, harbor seals, and idle sea lions. Heads Up! FOUR! as you ride past the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Just up the road in Monterey County you won’t want to miss Carmel-by-the-Sea, which has an astounding number of vistas packed into its one square mile.
