17 Mile Drive Tips (48)

17 Mile Drive Tour

In 1880, the elegant Hotel Del Monte opened its doors to the public. Among the many diversions available to guests was a horse-drawn carriage ride on a scenic, 17-mile gravel road-a road that ribboned its way around the Monterey Peninsula and through the Del Monte Forest.

17 Mile Drive

This is where the Pebble Beach Golf Course is located as well as spectacular views of the ocean. You can get great views of sea lions at many of the stops along this drive. You should show up as early as possible to avoid traffic.

The 17 Mile Drive

A toll road that takes you around the coast. Some of the views are amazing. We saw Sea Otters, sea lions and seal on our drive. You also see some magnificent house presumably those of the rich and famous, and Pebble Beach golf course (if your interested in golf)

Take your time on the 17 mile drive

The coastline is amazing and the views from the cliffs equally so. At the least send half a day here and if you can, bring a picnic and enjoy as much time as you can.

The 17 Mile Drive (2)

Brilliant idea to ask money to the tourists to use a road built for millionaires who have their secondary home on the coast.
