A quiet beach
Pebble Beach is located within the area of 17 Mile Drive, between Carmel and Monterey. The beach is very quiet, as it's a semi-private area, open only to locals or those who pay a fee ($10). The beach is rocky in the middle, and the blue/green sea is super transparent. It's very cold, though! The view is great, and it's a lovely place to relax, walk around, and take photos.
