At the southern tip of the Peninsula,
due west of Monterey and due north of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach is
an unincorporated residential and resort area.
Pebble Beach, a gated community in the beautiful Del Monte Forest, is home
to seven spectacular world-class golf courses. Pebble Beach Golf Links,
Spyglass Hill, Poppy Hills, the Links at Spanish Bay and private Cypress Point attract
golf enthusiasts from all over the world.
The Lone Cypress seems to defy the odds as it clings to a bare rock above the Pacific Ocean.
Many artists have been inspired by its tenacious elegance. Today, this landmark is a copyrighted
symbol of the Pebble Beach Company. Bird and Seal Rocks are an excellent place to
view shoreline birds like snowy egrets and blue herons. Sea lions and small harbor
leopard seals bark and bask on the rocks.
Take the opportunity to stop here along the 17-Mile Drive and enjoy a picnic lunch.
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am draws stars and stargazers each year to
Pebble Beach. Celebrities, amateurs and pros test their skills to the awe
and delight of crowds. The classic golf tournament is held at the end of January or
beginning of February.
