  • Address: Pebble Beach
Pebble Beach is perhaps most famous for the Pebble Beach Golf Links, which, with its views of Carmel Bay and the Pacific Ocean, is amongst the most beautiful in the world and has hosted many world-class golf tournaments, including five U.S. Open Championships. In total, the community has eight 18-hole golf courses. You do not have to be a golfer, however, to appreciate Pebble Beach.

As well as coastline views that feature Cypress Rock, Bird Rock and, one of California’s most enduring landmarks, the Lone Cypress, which has stood on its rocky perch for more than 250 years, Pebble Beach is home to several ocean-side hotels and elegant restaurants.

On top of the aforementioned golfing tournaments, Pebble Beach hosts several noted annual events such as spring’s Pebble Beach Food and Wine festival and the summertime Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance classic car show.

Practical Info:

The scenic 17-Mile Drive passes through Pebble Beach – the entrance marked by the crossing of Highway 68 and 17-Mile Drive. To drive within Pebble Beach, you will need to pay an entrance fee. No motorcycles are allowed.

The only public services available are at the Inn at Spanish Bay and the Lodge at Pebble Beach hotels.
