  • The Bird Rock is the 7th point to stop and view while moving on 17-miles Drive. Brown Pelicans, Brandt’s Cormorants, Western Gulls, Sea Lions comes and go from here as per their mating seasons...

  • Restrooms, picnic tables and a great place to stop along your 17 mile drive. Near Monterey and Carmel.

  • You will enjoy the squirrels here and their interactions are very cute. They come very close and give a decent postures which is fun to watch. Nothing special about the birds as this place is name after. Here you will find a lot parking place.
  • It was a beautiful spot watching all the birds sit together and having fun at the sunset. 17 Mile Drive was one of my bucket list. It was a beautiful experience. The drive was going around the beaches from inside the mountain and there were some beautiful homes in and around surrounded by the 17 Mile Drive. We saw a Deer passing through our drive during 17 mile drive. It was funny. 🤩👍🤩
  • There was a person in a blue shirt/vest from the museum with a spotting scope set up; it’s free they are amazing and teach you about what you are seeing. When we got there we had no idea so much movement but that spotting scope was locked in place and we could see all (about 7 otters) the otters sleeping in the sea weed/kelp. We learned a lot it was great to see and smell but look for the museum people with the blue vests and the spotting scopes on tripods it’s free!
  • Nice view point to see wildlife. It stinks though. There’s a restroom. There is a sign instructing to not feed wildlife. But I saw some people still doing it. Please don’t do such things and respect nature.
  • Bird Rock Vista Point is a visual as well as an auditory treat. You can't believe the number on sea lions sprawled all over that rock sunning themselves and barking loudly. Really cool.
