For those who want a special view of Pebble Beach and the coastline, pay the fee and enter the gate for your leisurely drive around the coast.

The most amazing and picturesque views you could ask for. Definitely worth the small fee. Plenty of places to stop and take photos! The maps given are accurate and really helpful. We drove around here on our way down highway 1, and it was really easy to jump back on it when we were finished

Amazing views. Many points of interests. Good photo options. Not much traffic. Keep your receipt as you can use it at the restaurants for a credit on your bill. Had nice shops on golf course. You can see the 18th hole and walk around the grounds. Very pretty!

This drive is well worth the $10 price of admission. We had to stop several times to take in the great taking views and take hundreds of pictures. Not to be missed!
