If the Big Sur was the highlight of a trip to California, then Pfeiffer Beach was certainly a highlight of our trip to the Big Sur. This is not your typical sun drenched, white sand beach with tan, oiled up beach babes, but it is spectacular none the less. We found Pfeiffer Beach as a bit of an accident actually. While on the way to our hotel in the area, we stopped for gas at a very small gas station, where a friendly local told us about this amazing spot. A short drive, and a small walk through the woods revealed one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen.
When most people think of California, they think L.A., Hollywood, movie stars, sun and crowds. At least those were always my first thoughts of “The Golden State”. Most of my European friends who have traveled the US tend to fly into LA or San Fransisco and then fly over to New York, maybe hit up Disney World in Florida, and then head back home. While all of these places hold their own in the travel world, I feel like this amazing 90 mile stretch of California is highly overlooked.
