Stunning beaches, rugged coast, historic ancient cypress trees including the Lone Cypress where the coast and world renown golf courses converge.
Drive the famous 17-mile drive and have a walk and lunch by the beautiful ocean vistas.
Beautiful views of Monterey Bay, Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach. Stop at The Lodge at Pebble Beach for lunch or dinner and watch the waves crash against the rocks as the golfers play up to the 18th green.
This is a touristy town, and this is one of the highlight tourist activities. You'll have to pay to enter, but if you have a meal at a restaurant or bar at the pebble beach properties they'll take that much off your meal. Make sure you see the lone cypress, and the seals. Just please, read the signs…
