California’s South-Central Coast

Traveling the Pacific Coastline on highway 1 between San Simeon and Carmel through Big Sur is full of dramatic scenery, where the turquoise waters crash into the rugged cliffs and mountains which rise up right from the ocean. For over 60 miles the highway winds its way along the cliff walls providing breathtaking views around every turn. Along the way are pullouts providing some exceptional photographic opportunities, as well side roads to points of interest and State Parks with hiking trails.

Just North of San Simeon is Ragged Point overlook which showcases what lies ahead and for the brave at heart, a step trail down the cliff wall leads to the rocky shoreline. Just off the highway is Piedra Blancas Light Station, a historic park and wildlife sanctuary which is a reminder of our past in maritime navigation. Not only does the pullouts provide spectacular views of the shoreline, but Sea Lions call portions of this area home.

The Big Sur Highway is much more than just a
