Big Sur is a stunning stretch of the central California coast where the Pacific ocean meets the Santa Lucia mountains.
Stunning doesn’t quite cut it.
This is a place of rugged mountains, ocean sunsets, glorious redwoods and bubbling streams.
Did we mention the gorgeous beaches and the eagles? They’re pretty amazing too.
‘Big Sur’ is a translation from the original Spanish description for this coastline when it was known as ‘the big south’, being the area south to the city of Monterey.
Stretching from San Simeon to Carmel in the north, this 90 odd miles of coast is easily the most scenic and iconic part of the Highway One drive.
