Every week we pick a newly submitted photo from the Flickr Group "See Monterey- Beautiful Photos of Monterey County." This week's winner is "The Sunset Through Rocks - Sycamore Monterey Beach, Pfeiffer Beach / Big Sur, California, USA" submitted by Taka Taira.
Don't confuse this Pfeiffer Beach with the one at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, which lies a few miles south. Many locals name Pfeiffer Beach their favorite because of its wide sandy beaches and the arch rock that lies just offshore.
For more information about this Big Sur beach visit "Tales from the Trail: Pfeiffer Beach, Home of the Purple Sand."
