Santa Barbara and the Central Coast Sights

Pfeiffer Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 05/04/2014

Fodor's Review

Through a hole in one of the gigantic boulders at secluded Pfeiffer Beach, you can watch the waves break first on the sea side and then on the beach side. Keep a sharp eye out for the unsigned, ungated road to the beach: it branches west of Highway 1 between the post office and Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. The 2-mile, one-lane road descends sharply. Amenities: parking (fee); toilets. Best For: solitude; sunset.
