Must-See Stops Along 17-Mile Drive

Experience the breathtaking beauty found along 17-Mile Drive, including the captivating Lone Cypress, the inviting snow-white dunes and beaches surrounding Spanish Bay, and the spectacular 18th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Stillwater Cove.

The Lone Cypress

As one of the most famous and photographed trees in the world, The Lone Cypress has prevailed on its rocky perch for over 250 years.

Bird Rock

This rock was caked in 4 to 5 feet of pelican and cormorant guano until 1930, when it was harvested as a fertilizer. Sea lions took advantage of the cleaned-off perch, and have been sun-bathing here at this active wildlife hub ever since.

Spanish Bay

Spanish explorer Don Gaspar de Portela and his crew camped here in 1769 while searching for Monterey Bay, giving the scenic picnic stop its name. There’s also a beautiful boardwalk here that wraps around the shoreline.

Point Joe

Home of the churning Restless Sea, early mariners often crashed upon these rocks. This vista offers incredible panoramas looking into Spanish Bay, and toward Spyglass Hill and Fanshell Beach.

The Lodge at Pebble Beach

Built in 1919, The Lodge is the heart and soul of Pebble Beach. The Lodge is perched above the dramatic 18th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links, and is home to world-class dining and a bounty of boutique shops and stores.

The Inn at Spanish Bay

The sand is so white here it once restored the pristine beaches of Waikiki. Former the site of an industrial sand mine, it now hosts one of Golf Digest’s Top 50 Courses You Can Play, one of the World’s Best Hotels according to Travel and Leisure, and a memorable bagpiper performance every evening.
