Kick off your California coastal adventure from the sprawling megalopolis of Los Angeles. Stop in Santa Barbara - also known as the American Riviera - and take in the incredible Spanish influences. Spend the night in beautiful Pismo Beach and travel the spectacular Cabrillo Highway to Monterey, stopping in for lunch at Big Sur along the way. Finish in San Francisco. This is a great way to witness the stunning Cali coastline in all its glory.

Highlights

With its widespread beaches and relaxed atmosphere, Santa Barbara is a great place to escape the bright lights and buzz of major cities

Due to the nature of this trip, it allows you to see a lot of the Californian coast in such a short period of time

Mexican influence runs throughout Monterey, with the city offering a glimpse into the history of California before it became a part of the USA

San Francisco has a completely unique landscape that’s extremely rewarding to explore by foot. With cable cars navigating its steep hills and the Golden Gate Bridge forever in its backdrop, it’s worth getting to know
