Information: The famous 17-mile drive at Pebble Beach is one of the most fun things you can do when visiting the Monterey Bay area especially if you are not the one driving and can devote your full attention to some of the most picturesque seascapes in the world. Basically the 17-mile drive is simply a scenic toll road through an exclusive community around the peninsula which has three golf courses, several seaside resorts, lavish ocean view residences and breathtaking views. The famous 17-Mile Drive passes through all four of Monterey Peninsula's main communities, Monterey, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and Carmel-by-the-Sea as well as some exclusive smaller ones unfurling amazing scenic beauty along rocky coves and emerald golf courses. There are numerous stops along the way with picnic tables for to enjoy a picnic lunch if you choose; my favorite picnic spots are between Point Joe and Seal Rock; you will want to take a table cover, the seagulls have bad manners. Or if you stop to eat at one of the restaurants along the way they will reimburse your toll if you ask; I would recommend Roy's restaurant (831-647-7500) at the Inn at Spanish Bay.
If you are on a budget you won’t see the Lone Cypress or Pebble Beach but you can still view similar stunning seascape scenery for free by following Ocean View Boulevard and Sunset Drive along the water's edge south from the Monterey Bay Aquarium past Asilomar State Beach to Highway 68; follow 68 and it will take you to Highway One.
You get a brochure with map when you enter the drive and a red-dashed line help guide you too. The trip will take about 3 hours more if you stop often or eat along the way. The best time to go is in the fall or spring when they skies are mostly clear and the weather is sunny. In the summer it tends to get foggy in the morning and sometimes all day; you will also not want to go when they are having any majior golf tourniments or events.
Points of Interest Along the Way: The famous iconic Lone Cypress, one of California’s best-known landmarks, Spanish Bay, Cypress Point Lookout, Fanshell Lookout, Point Joe and Carmel Bay. You can also see the lush green fairways of The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill and the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links and the Lodge at Pebble Beach.
Beach Access and Day Use Parks & Picnic Areas: There are many beaches and picnic areas along this route, my favorite picnic spots are between Point Joe and Seal Rock; you will want to take a table cover, the seagulls have bad manners.
Best places to Eat: I would recommend Roy's restaurant (831-647-7500) at the Inn at Spanish Bay but there are numbeous places to eat at Pebble Beach and Monterey as well as Cramel are within close driving distance.
Nearby Hotel Lodgings & Resorts: Pebble Beach has three lodgings to accommodate your stay: Built originally in 1919, the Lodge at Pebble Beach, the Inn at Spanish Bay and the smaller Casa Palmero at Pebble Beach.
Near Campgrounds: The closest camping is to go south on PCH 1 then inland up Carmel Valley Road, Saddle Mountain RV Park (831-624-1617); itis primarily an RV park but they do have some tent sites, it’s about 11.5 miles. Also there is a Monterey County run park the Laguna Seca Recreation Area (888-588-2267) which is about 10 miles on highway 68 which offers Salinas Valley views with both RV and tent camping with hookups, running water restrooms with showers and miles of trails on the Fort Ord Public Lands. About 28 miles south then east is Botcher's Gap Campground.
