Information: This rocky point sticks out and protrudes into the ocean farther than any of the other nearby geography so it can be seen up and down the coast for miles . It is a piece of Hearst property that marks the south end of the nicest large beach near Ragged Point, San Carpoforo Creek Beach. The beach extends all the way past San Carpoforo Creek accessible to the general public for their free use and exploration. So feel free to enjoy, there is parking just off the highway where the highway drops down to sea level just across from an old ranch house; be sure and park all the way off the highway and don't block any driveways or access roads.

History & Museums: Historically this point was a maritime hazard in the whaling days and when the cargo ships steamed up and down just off the California coast but these days this Ragged Point is just a precursor to what is to come to the north as the highway begins to climb and hug the cliffs of the scenic rugged Big Sur Coast.

If get car sick easy you may want to turn around this is the just the beginning of dramatic curvy cliff-side scenic highway perched on the edge of America that has made Big Sur famous and provides the sort of road trip some people like myself just love!
