Been on this drive a few times. Always pretty. Always relaxing. We were lucky the weather was just perfect. If you’ve never been on this road don’t hesitate. Try it. It’s worth the entry fee!

Gorgeous drive but very winding. Plenty of stunningly beautiful ocean view with pull-outs. Short drive from Monterey/Carmel/ Pacific Grove.
