Where is 17 Mile Drive?
Whether you are travelling by car (for a fee), by bike or on foot (for free) on this romantic stretch of coast – you will have one thought above all: what do I have to do to be able to live here?
Meandering between Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, the privately managed road leads through a windswept Cypress Forest to a rocky shoreline, home to some of the most enviable private homes on Earth. You can also enjoy beautiful views of the famous Pebble Beach golf courses. In spring, you should stop at Fanshell Overlook to watch seals and their young (usually from April to June). Bring your picnic and spread a blanket on the small beach at Spanish Bay – or treat yourself to a menu at the prickly Lodge at Pebble Beach.
