17-Mile Drive reviews
This was a beautiful drive. The views were beautiful. It was well worth the $11.25. The Visitor Center was worth a stop too. We were fortunate enough to see an otter.

I could have spent all day here. The exhibits were stunning, so much variety and so very well kept. Definitely a must do in the area.

It is an amazing nature. A pleasure driving, stopping and walking and enjoying …just a heaven. Beautiful especially in April, all the flowers are in blossom. Sunset is beautiful. Only it would be great if the entrance payment would work for the whole day. We exit for lunch with my family and came back again, we paid again. ( a car entry costs $11.25)
Such a great drive! So mind relaxing and scenery is just amazing.. anyone trying to just clear their mind check this drive out. Lots to see from nice coves to animals birds and also great spot to take lots of photos.. last time we went we saw whales but kinda in a distance .. highly would recommend it
17 Mile Drive is such a beautiful scenic drive to enjoy California's beautiful and diverse landscape. The glorious Pacific Ocean can be seen throughout a nice portion of 17 Mile Drive as well as gentle rolling hills, trees, flowers, and meadows where deer graze. What makes this drive so special is the amazing variety of trees that one can see along with the coastline. There are Cypress trees, Pines, and even some Redwoods. I highly recommend experiencing this drive!
It’s an amazing driving experience with exotic view of Pacific Ocean on one side and lavish homes on other. You will find waves, cliffs, stones, sand, birds, sunrise, sunset. It’s has breathtaking views, calming environment, amazing curves, peaceful vibes. It is must do thing for motorcycle riders and people with convertibles. Suggestions: take a warm jacket if you are going in winters and it’s too windy n chilly in winters.
Bring a sweatshirt or windbreaker cuz it’s always windy! A fun way to spend half a day. Some stops more worth it than others. I went while 2 stops were closed for seal pupping season but the rest made it worth it. There is a walking trail between spots 6-8 which is more fun than driving. Saw many deer, birds, seals. Fancy shops near the main golf part. Lots of VERY friendly squirrels. Bathrooms limited at the stops.
