For your third day, we recommend a relaxed start, and perhaps even a lie-in to recharge before a long and rewarding final day. Today, however, is a shorter day and will take you around the Carmel Valley coastline through Monterey and Pebble Beach via the unmistakable 17 Mile Drive. That afternoon you will stop close to Big Sur at an exclusive and ultra-luxe resort.
