Beach Favorites

Pfeiffer Beach is a great location to sit and enjoy the beauty of Big Sur. Located just a quarter mile south of the Big Sur Ranger Station, the beach is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. There is an entrance fee of $10 per car.

You can enjoy a fun day at Pfeiffer Beach, but remember it is only a Day Use Area—overnight camping is not allowed. Bring a group of friends and just enjoy the beautiful outdoors in the heart of Big Sur.
