Select 17-Mile Drive Points of Interest

Marvel at some of nature’s treasures found along 17-Mile Drive including The Lone Cypress—one of California’s best-known landmarks—as well as Spanish Bay and the world-renowned emerald fairways of Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The Lone Cypress

As one of California’s most enduring landmarks, The Lone Cypress has prevailed on its rocky perch for over 250 years.

Fanshell Overlook

The pure white sand of the beach below is irresistible to harbor seals, which return each spring to bear their young. Closed during the harbor seal pupping season from April 1 to June 1.

Spanish Bay

Don Gaspar de Portela, the Spanish explorer, and his crew camped here in 1769 while searching for Monterey Bay. A scenic picnic stop, this is also a pleasant location for a stroll around the shoreline.

Point Joe

Early mariners often crashed upon these rocks after mistakenly setting their course for this point, believing that it was the entrance to Monterey Bay.

The Lodge at Pebble Beach

Built in 1919, The Lodge is the heart and soul of Pebble Beach and home to the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links. Open to the public, it offers a variety of dining and shopping options.
