  • Bixby Bridge and the ocean views around it are the highlights of the Hwy 1 in Big Sur. Get your camera ready!  more »
  • Lots of cars slowing down and trying to find parking spaces. The rocky coastline here is gorgeous in any type of weather - just different moods. Take time to enjoy the views.  more »
  • We often stop along the wild coast to the many points of view on the Paifique. Here it is seen on the longest bridge

  • Nice place to visit. If you travel towards south, there is a mud road to the left just before you enter the bridge. Bridge views are great from this point. But, be careful. The point is like a cliff and there are no rails to safeguard the children. Be extra cautious.
  • Really amazing views. Awesome place for photography. You will fall in love with PCH
  • one of the most photographed bridges in California. As we visited the place on a friday around 1pm, we got parking. This place is beautiful
  • The view is nice. The bridge is iconic and all. But parking is a problem on weekends. There are many other spots too on Big Sur road which have very nice views
  • Great spot to stop on our road trip, the views of the bridge and the coast are amazing. There is a dirt road where side of the road parking is available for picture taking an enjoying the view. It does look a bit dangerous as there is a steep drop off the edge, just have to be careful about that. We were really glad to have stopped here, it was well worth it.
