Location & Directions
Big Sur, California
Ventana Big Sur is located on the Big Sur Coast off Highway 1, 28 miles south of Carmel.
When to go
Big Sur is an all-year destination. For nature lovers, the coast is wonderfully wild in winter and you can go whale-watching and birding; spring sees wonderful flower displays, and there are a host of watersports to be tried at the beach in the summer; autumn brings harvest bounty and temperatures are usually still balmy. The fog is present mostly in May and June, but usually burns off by lunchtime.
