102. Pfeiffer Beach

Pfeiffer Beach is located ¼ mile south of the Big Sur Station on Highway 1. Look for a yellow “Narrow Road” sign and a steep paved driveway on the right hand side of the road. If you get to the Big Sur Post Office, you have passed the turn off. Pfeiffer Beach is operated by the U.S. Forest Service and there is a $10 per vehicle parking fee at the beach. The two-mile road to the beach is extremely narrow and RVs and trailers are not recommended. Swimming and climbing on rocks is not advised due to potential hazardous conditions and the remote location of this beach. Dogs are permitted on the beach with a leash. There is no overnight parking or camping, and no fires are allowed on the beach.
