Big Sur is a quintessential stop on your camper van road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), offering travelers breathtaking views of the rugged Central California coastline. This iconic stretch of Highway 1 meanders through steep cliffs and offers vista points to observe the dramatic meeting of land and ocean, with opportunities for hiking, beachcombing, and photographing of the scenic landscapes. A camper van journey through Big Sur encapsulates the essence of California's natural beauty and the spirit of adventure that the PCH road trip represents.

The iconic Big Sur in California is a rustic stretch of coast between Carmel and San Simeon. Surrounded by both idyllic mountains and the Pacific Ocean, this foggy getaway is a top destination for outdoorsy fun- without the crowds. Witness sea cliffs, hike massive parks and explore rugged beaches.
