The views are stunning and the drive is exhilarating along this fabulous coastline. The Bixby Bridge is elegant and photogenic. Unfortunately as well as being famous for its looks, it also has gained fame for the deaths of people falling to their death.

The twisting ride along the rugged coastline of Big Sur offers eighty-five miles of absolutely spectacular scenery. Be prepared to stop and admire the landscape along the numerous scenic overlooks. The region offers scenic Beaches, California Redwoods, rolling Mountains and amazing Rocky Cliffs. Take your time, take many photographs, and watch the sunset over the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean.

We drove along Big Sur and the Bixby Bridge. The drive was filled with magnificent scenery and the bridge structure is unique and fantastic in its own right. A thoroughly worthwhile journey and adventure

Bixby Bridge is pretty impressive. It's massive - over 200 metres tall, it's almost impossible to see the bottom of it. There is plenty of parking on either side of the road as you approach the bridge. The best view is from the west side, as the sun illuminates this side, and especially close to sunset, the warm glow on... More

This bridge is iconic and beautiful to stop and take pictures with the family. I will say this was my favorite view while driving up the 1.

I stopped at Bixby Bridge while on a roadtrip down the 1. The whole area of Big Sur is gorgeous – whether you’re camping, driving through, or visiting for a weekend to hike and explore. The towns surrounding the area are also very quaint.

a short stop on the picturesque highway 1.. like so many ... but this is different.. its built around 1929 & if you see it carefully, you will notice its beauty & architectural brilliance. Nice views of bridge, & sea shore.. If you are coming from north, there is small parking area before the bridge..

This bridge has a world record to it for something, highest or longest I can't remember, but its worth a look and there are laybys on either end to stop your car or bike

Anytime we Drive Highway 1 South it's always a thrill to see Bixby Bridge stretching out ahead of us and marvel at the structure that has held together for so many years!!
