Carmel to Big Sur

How long does it take to drive down the coast from Carmel to Julia Pfeiffer Burns St Park with no stops on the way.

I wouldk say about 30 min or less,but we made a few stops to gawk at the beautiful scenery. Definitely take the short walk to the overlook where the house used to be. The beach is inaccessable,but the view is beautiful.

JPB is 37 miles south of Carmel. Plan on driving 25-50 MPH, depending on time of year, condition of sunshine/fog, other drivers, how good you are on driving a curving road, etc.

We just did this drive last month. It's gorgeous. It took us about 40 minutes with one stop to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. The weather was perfect and I make DH drive cautiously on this road. ***kim***
