Big Sur, California

Bixbby Creek Bridge, Big Sur California

After reaching Ragged Point  along the PCH we had to reroute to see the Big Sur  with thanks to a landslide. However, I’m just going to tell you now, it is worth the longer trip.big sur california

For those not aware of where or indeed what the Big Sur is, then let me give you a brief 411. The Big Sur is a stretch of rugged and untamed coastline along the central coast of California between Ragged Point and Carmel.

The Big Sur is a place of sheer natural beauty so we took our time to discover it and all it’s gems.

Admittedly it was hard knowing which way to look; with mountains on one side and stunning beaches and cliff edges on the other.

Although the entire region is a thing of natural beauty there are some main sites that if you are driving through you should definitely stop off to see.

Unsurprisingly, one of the most photographed bridges in the state of California.

Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park

This state park offers hikers many small trails to explore and is often referred to as a “mini Yosemite.”

So pick up your walking shoes and mosquito spray and go on a “mini adventure.”

Rocky Point

Now not exactly a natural highlight of the Big Sur, but trust me when I tell you that this is a stop off that you are not going to want to miss. The Rocky Point Restaurant is a stop that boasts some of the best views of the Big Sur.

So pull up a seat with a view and order one of their delectable hot chocolates and simply enjoy.

Realistically it is hard to find a hot chocolate with a better view than this.

Once finished take a walk down to the actual “Rocky Point,” where if you are as lucky as us then you might spot a couple of sea otters.

Admittedly it was hard to not overload this post with a ridiculous amount of photos. Keep posted for more on the Californian Coast.
