Prepare a picnic and head out to 17-Mile Drive in the Monterey Peninsula for a wonderful day amongst nature. Admire the beautiful coastline fairways of the world’s best golf courses and watch the crashing waves of the endless Pacific Ocean. Take binoculars to see amazing wildlife enjoying the waters, and get photos of the ones that come close. Follow the winding stretch of road through forests and back to the coast with new perspectives along the way. Soak in all that the drive has to offer and take as much time as necessary.

Fairways Starting in Carmel, it is easy to see the brilliant green fairways of some of the area’s most well known golf courses. Visitors can admire views of the Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Spyglass Hill and the Links at Spanish Bay. Also plainly visible are portions of Cypress Point Golf Course and Pebble Beach Golf Links, which are considered two of the top 100 golf courses in the world.

Point Joe

Point Joe is a spot with many large and jagged rocks along the shore. The beautiful site is accentuated by the crashing waves onto the rugged coastal terrain. Early seafarers often mistook this location to be the entrance of Monterey Bay and crashed their ships here.
