Top Attractions in Big Sur
Though Highway 1 is Big Sur’s biggest attraction, there are still other equally impressive points of interest. The Bixby Bridge played a significant role in Big Sur’s tourism industry, as it introduced automobile travel to the area and formed a connection with the neighboring coastal towns. Another historical landmark is the Point Sur Lighthouse, which sits atop a volcanic rock.
For some of nature’s beautiful mysteries, head to Pfeiffer Beach with its purple sand or the Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park with its waterfall plunging into the Pacific.
