17 Mile Drive
Neighboring Carmel-By-The-Sea, Pebble Beach’s 17-Mile Drive is arguably one of the most scenic drives on the west coast. The 17-Mile Drive provides an experience unlike any other, gently winding beside the Pacific coastline and through the Del Monte Forest.
One of the most recognizable points along the 17-Mile Drive trek is the Cypress Point Lookout, which is home to the famed Lone Cypress tree. This majestic Lone Cypress has stood strong for over 250 years and is one of California’s most prominent landmarks, as well as one of the most famous trees in the world. The Lone Cypress was even recognized as one of the “10 Most Magnificent Trees in the World,” by World Amazing Events.com. The Lone Cypress has become an icon of Pebble Beach and Monterey County in general and is now used as the symbol of the Pebble Beach Company.
In addition to the Lone Cypress, visitors to 17-Mile Drive can enjoy spectacular views of Carmel Bay, Del Monte Forest, and the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links. The 17-Mile Drive is one landmark that no visitor to the area will want to miss, and is sure to create lasting memories of your time in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
