We were both off on Monday, so we decided to take a little drive down to Big Sur. We followed the coast all the way down. There are some truly spectacular beaches on that drive.
On the way down we stumbled upon the Rocky Point Restaurant. It’s an awesome place. The have a large outdoor patio, and the view simply can’t be beat. They are located about 10 miles south of Carmel (on highway 1), and are open for lunch and dinner. There isn’t really much else around them, and the sign sneaks up on you fast, so you may drive right by it and have to turn around (we did).
If you’re down in that area, I highly recommend stopping in.
