17-Mile Drive

Sweeping coastline, rocky shores, majestic cypress groves, and impressive mansions, the 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach offers it all. Take this famous scenic drive that hugs the California coast from Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach and witness magical landscapes of sea and shore, with world-class golf courses and stunning beaches. In the late spring and early summer, stop at the Fanshell Overlook to see the harbor seals and their pups.

Watch the impressive waves at the Ghost Tree and visit the ancient Lone Cypress, one of the most photographed trees in the country. Explore the 5,300-acre Del Monte Forest, enjoy a relaxing picnic at Spanish Bay or splurge on lunch at the chic Lodge at Pebble Beach before heading over for a game of golf at the Pebble Beach Golf Links.
