this one is easily missed! We passed by and saw many cars parking alongside the highway and there were no sign of any attractions but a path and people walking up. We asked and followed the directions as told. Walking all the way down and to the bridge on the left thru a tunnel is the cove. It is beautiful!... 更多
First time hiking to Partington Cove and I enjoyed it. Fairly easy to find, just six miles past Nepenthe and pull off to the side of the road, you'll likely see a group of cars already parked by the trail entrance. No signs to indicate what the trail leads to. Bring plenty of water and be prepared for a strenuous... 更多
Short hike (1/2 mile one way) down the road and you will see old docking place. Very easy hike for anybody, recommend for kids and also, don't forget to turn to the beach after the cave - it is nice and quiet. There is no parking place or any signs. The pullout is just 2 miles north of the Julia... 更多
One of the mesmerizing areas of the coast line. We fell in love hiking down into the cove. we plan to return tto stay, so beautiful.
Partington cove has some amazing blue water and you can see evidence of when ships used to dock there to transport tan bark from partington canyon. kind of a short steep hike to the voce itself but worth it, come early as it gets busy quick.

A lot of people park on Hwy 1 Shoulder to go here because accessible coastline isn't easy to find. I found the cove rocks hard to lie on. Worth seeing a couple times.
To get to this you have to have pre-knowhow of the location and a bit of luck because the parking a just along the road and fills up fast. You hike down to the sea and in spring you can see killer wales if you bring your binoculars, if so you will get stuck for hours, we were amazed. Back... 更多
While i did not hike ALL the trails, this is the best stop in Big Sur. Though there is no signage to this cover there is a clear path that is nice and wide. Still pretty good hiking as its at a steep incline. but the views are breath taking, the the constant and variable waves crashing provide a cool... 更多
Big Sur has the best views in all of California. The area is huge & beautiful. We had spent the morning at Point Lobos & made the mandatory Bixby Bridge stop. The family got to vote on one more stop. The tunnel & rocks of Parting Cove sounded enthralling. The short tunnel was neat. However, the view at the bottom... 更多
