17 Mile Drive
Only a few miles from Monterey, on the south side of the Monterey peninsula, lies Carmel. The many charms of the countryside make it worthwhile going the long way round, the "Seventeen Mile Drive". This begins at Pacific Grove Gate and then goes along the Pacific coast and for part of the way through the Del Monte Forest, where there is a number of large villas.
