Welcome to Pebble Beach
Exclusivity and prestige in a coveted oceanfront golf town
Paradise exists on earth, and its name is Pebble Beach. Home to lavish resorts and world-famous golf clubs, this rare gem sparkles with views of the Pacific Ocean and a stunning horizon line where a cloudless sky kisses glittering azure water. Before the creation of 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach was another sleepy swath of spectacular shoreline. Once the iconic road was built, Pebble Beach became a coveted destination for wealthy adventurers, and one of the world’s grandest resort towns was born.
Sporting breathtaking coastal views, 17 Mile Drive stretches from Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach, hugging the coast and dazzling visitors with a vivid mix of blues, white-capped waves, and craggy rocks. Part of Pebble Beach’s allure is the seamless blend of outstanding luxury and wild beauty, and the town’s golf club culture perfectly embodies this marriage of nature and sophistication. Lush courses appear to be one with the sky and sea as verdant greens jut out to meet crashing waves. Architecture reaches impossible heights with custom homes built in the spirit of the dramatic landscape.
