9 Lesser Known Gorgeous Beaches You Must Visit
Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur – California
The miles of cliff-lined Pacific Coast that parallel California’s Highway One are all scenic, but Pfeiffer beats out nearby stretches for its rocky coves and unusual purple sand, earning the No. 2 ranking for its dramatic landscape.
Pfeiffer Beach is located in the heart of Big Sur and is one of the favorite beaches in all of Big Sur. Pfeiffer Beach is a Day Use Area, no overnight camping
The beach itself is gorgeous and the purple sand is awesome. The tide was coming in but you’ll enjoyed exploring the beach and taking pictures in front of the keyhole arch.
Great Outings For All Ages
It’s a great spot for snapping photos. It wasn’t too crowded. There was a mix of people there — young and old, families, visitors from abroad, and people relaxing alone. This is a destination for sure. Soak in the beauty of this gorgeous beach in Big Sur. The water was chilly and the waves were rough so no one was swimming. Remember to bring a beach towel or folding chairs to sit and relax.
All in all this beach is one of my favorites in California. It is away from the crowd, has an element of adventure and has the beautiful purple sand, what more could you ask for? If you are driving up from the south on highway 1 make sure to look for the turnout on your left right before Pfeiffer State Park (not the Julia Burns one, there are two).
Magical Sunset That Take Your Breath Away
Come just before sunset – the light on the rocks is beautiful. That’s when the magic happens. The sun setting and her lights hitting down and peaking through the keyhole rock is breathtaking.
