17-Mile Drive

One of the most scenic drives on the Monterey Peninsula, and quite possibly the world, resides behind the prestigious gates of Pebble Beach. The famous 17-Mile Drive is a visually stunning stretch of roadway which hugs the pacific coastline from Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach featuring awe-inspiring sights along the way.

Allow yourself plenty of time to cover the entire stretch of road to fully immerse yourself in the wonders of this seaside gem. Iconic landmarks (and photo opportunities) include The Lone Cypress, Spanish Bay, Stillwater Cove, the Del Monte Forest, and the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links. Have your camera ready where you are also likely to see various wildlife ranging from to grazing deer on the golf course to barking sea lions near Bird Rock.

Plan ahead for lunch while on your trek through 17-Mile Drive. Make a reservation to pamper yourself at one of the various restaurants at The Inn at Spanish Bay or The Lodge at Pebble Beach or for a more casual experience pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenic sights at Seal Rock.

The entrance fee into Pebble Beach Resorts and 17-Mile Drive is $11.25 per vehicle and $5.50 per bus passenger. Upon payment of your entry fee at any of the five entry gates into Pebble Beach, you will receive a helpful brochure detailing the many scenic and historic points of interest along the route which also serves as a perfect souvenir.
