Big Sur

About Big Sur

Big Sur is an experience to savor wild, natural beauty isolated by the ocean and jagged cliffs defined by Highway 1 as it winds along the coast revealing one stunning vista after another. Big Sur offers a "drive of a lifetime" - attracting a steady stream of California travelers from all over the world.  
There are bridges, lighthouses, cliffs and waterfalls along the way. Although the Highway 1 drive is the draw, saavy visitors will discover the Big Sur region has much to offer for hiking, birding, beachcombing, photography, whale watching, camping and generally escaping from urban life. The Ventana Wilderness and Los Padres National Forest extend well inland, protecting this coastline from development.
