Pfeiffer Beach Big Sur chosen #3 on Saturday Evening Post's Americas 10 Best Beaches List!!!
The turnoff for the Pfeiffer State Beach can be easily missed, watch for it, it is Sycamore Canyon Road 0.6 miles south of Big Sur Station and immediately north of the Highway 1 bridge over Pfeiffer Canyon. This is a one-lane paved road for 2.5 miles down to Pfeiffer Beach; take care and yield the right of way to uphill traffic; RVs and trailers are not recommended on this narrow road. It is open 7 days a week year around 9AM to 8PM there is a small charge per vehicle. You can call Parks Management Company for more beach information 805-434-1996.
As this stretch of highway 1 takes you briefly along the coast then turns inland taking you through the Redwood Forests up the Big Sur River Valley you come upon a number of clusters of little business areas all within a few miles of each other. They are all wonderful in their own ways and vary slightly but the one thing they have in common is they are there for you and have been for many years to do their best to serve the Pacific Coast Highway traveler and they generally do that well. Each is like a mini-resort or private campground offering a smorgasbord of traveler/vacationer facilities and services. If you stop and where you stop and what you do can depend on many things. What time of year it is, what are your needs and desires and what your budget i$.

If you are looking for a place to stay this website has a guide to all the Big Sur Hotel Lodgings, personally I prefer the Big Sur Campgrounds. If you are planning on being hungry during your trip there is a Guide to All the Big Sur Restaurants but I must say my favorite Big Sir Restaurant for breakfast is Ragged Point Inn Restaurant and for lunch or dinner it is Nepenthe.
