    Drive near the coast is apsolutely gorgeous!!! Its 10$ entry, but its completely worth it! You get a map with main sites on the entry so its super easy to navigate.

    Breath taking drive. All stops are amazing. $10 fee. Drive e around and see if there are any houses you can buy. Bring a Million or 2 or 3...

    Beautiful but you can get great views for miles along the coast without having to pay $10. A good amount of the 17 miles is also just through wooded areas and not oceanside.

    costs $10 to get in...you can stop at multiple places (use the map)...drive on the coast side is more interesting,it should ideally be called 9 mile drive...pebble beach lodge for restrooms n food...

    $10 entrance fee per car, but well worth the beautiful drive along the coast. A visitor's map of all the attractions is provided.

    One of the most breathtaking drives you'll ever make. Get out of your car and take LOTS of pictures! Favorites are the Lone Cypress and The Lodge at Pebble Beach.

    $9.95 to get in (knew that). Tourist trap. Similar to everything else along highway 1. Much better scenery in Monterey elsewhere without the crowds, which makes for better photos!

  • Karolina R.

    Definitely do it if you're in the area! Even if you're not going to stop at any of the vista points, it's still worth it. Bring your GoPro!

    Really, there is no need to. Most of the coastline is private property. You'll have just as good views driving along the rest of the coast!

  • Sunil K.

    21 spots to look out. Awesome view. Must visit on a clear day, as the color of the water is awesome. Awesome place for photography

    You have to pay a $10 fee to enter but this drive is beautiful if you take the time to stop here and there and enjoy yourself

    Angela Liu · March 22, 2015

    Spanish bay inn, China rock where you can see sea lion and the entire drive is gorgeous. Pebble beach is the finishing touch.

    Had a great time driving slowly and making stops along the way. Don't forget the Ghost tree, Bird rock and the bald cypress tree.

    Must visit if you're in Monterey. $10 entrance fee but if you eat at the lodge, you can get a credit for it.

  • Chris M.

    Turns out it is worth the $9.50 gate entrance fee. Amazing views of the CA coast -- not to be missed.

    Scenic views are wonderful. Awesome place to watch the sunset.

    There are some beaches not marked on the map. Do explore them!

    Vasundhara Ray · July 12, 2015
  • Steph R.

    $9.50 to enter. Cash only, but redeemable if you spend $25 or more at Pebble Beach restaurants or golf.

    Steph Raquel · November 12, 2010

    You can see seals. The coast view is not better than anywhere else.

    Pebble beach and carmel-by the sea are 'the must see places'

    bahar konak · January 2
  • Molly O.

    not worth the $10, at least after you've driven up the coast and seen big sur

    HAHA. Be careful, you can get a little wet at some of the stop. :)
