A Spectacular

Setting

Big Sur is a rugged, breathtaking stretch of California’s central coast between Carmel and San Simeon. Bordered to the east by the Santa Lucia Mountains and the west by the Pacific Ocean, it’s traversed by narrow, 2-lane State Route 1, known for winding turns, seaside cliffs, and views of the often-misty coastline. The sparsely populated region has numerous state parks for hiking, camping, and beachcombing. The scenery in Big Sur, California is unmatched but besides that, an eclectic vibe flows through the area and permeates Big Sur hotels, shops, and restaurants. A table with a view isn’t hard to come by in Big Sur. Neither is a sense of well-being. Cliffs, rocks, redwoods, and bubbly surf create an epic backdrop for recreation, romance, and relaxed exploration.

The town is truly a gem of the United States and has been awarded, Traveler’s Choice Award Winner for Top 2 Destinations in the United States, “Best Place to Play Hooky”, “Best Romantic Getaway” and National Geographic Traveler listed Big Sur as one of the “50 Places of a Lifetime/The World’s Greatest Destinations.”
