Highlights near Big Sur

West Coast Camping

This image shows the gorgeous area of Big Sur from an arial view, which really highlights the topography of the area famous for it's coastal cliffs and ocean view drives. My friends and I come out here once a year to camp at a secluded, hike-in spot directly above the cliffs...the only oceanside site! I highly recommend stopping at Nepenthe, a restaurant about 45 minutes north. Guaranteed beauty, people-watching and sunshine.

I can't wait to make it back to Big Sur someday (I haven't been since I was 15 and it's so close to me)! And everyone I know who's been raves about Nepenthe.

By the way, Gianna, this could qualify for this week's CATCH contest theme - "On Top Of The World." Details here: http://www.afar.com/afar/post-your-highlights-win-a-trip-to-india Please let me know if you have any questions! Good luck!
