Big Sur is in California.

Big Sur coast, Pacific Coast Highway, California, USA

Get in

You can take Highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway). It is about 26 miles south from Carmel.

Get around

See

The coastline is breathtaking. You can best see it driving along the Pacific Coast Highway (there are plenty of places to pull over and take pictures, but be careful both while driving and standing along side the road - the scenery is a real distraction!).

Pt Sur Lighthouse State Park

Located 19 miles south of Carmel, you can't miss Pt. Sur. It's the big rock jutting from the shoreline like it was thrown there by a giant. On top of the rock, you can clearly see the Pt. Sur Lighthouse and buildings. The standard three hour tour is worth it if you have the time and would like to get some incredible views, learn a little history and do something a little bit different than the standard California coastal tourist fare.

  • Big Sur Campground and Cabins. They have campsites, tent-cabins and rustic cabins, all beneath giant redwoods and beside the Big Sur river. There's great swimming in the river and hiking is close by. Kids can ride inner-tubes or rubber boats down the river and a short 3 mile drive either north or south will get you to beautiful beaches (Pfieffer to the south and Molera to the north.)
