Bird Rock @ Pebble Beach

Bird Rock at Pebble Beach is a well known landmark on what is part of the famous 17 mile Drive along the Central Coast of California.  You can spot many sea lions, seals and birds resting and lounging at this granite landmark.  Bring your binoculars to get a better view although they do have some quarter operated ones for you to use.  Although I live in Monterey, I have only done this drive once but I highly recommend it.  It is worth the $9.50 ticket price to drive through the gated Pebble Beach Community. 
What are some of your favorite drives along the coast?

Bird Rock- well, the name is certainly fitting! Reminds me of Pelican Island in the BVI, also aptly named. You've seen it, I'm sure- in the Sir Francis Drake Channel on the way to The Bight at Norman Island.

I'd love to drive along the California Pacific Highway, or whatever it's called. I know it's breathtaking!

That looks like a great afternoon drive! I live on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. It's rugged & dramatic & people come from all over the world to do the drive. It really is spectacular with lots of great stuff to do along the way.

The 17 mile drive is awesome. I drove it once, as well.

We have some nice drives along our coast...but a whole different feel. Tropical rather than rocky. Yours is stunning!

The California coast is so gorgeous - someday I want to go back and go pier-hopping.
