Known for its camping spots and dramatic scenery, Big Sur is a rugged section of California’s Central Coast between Monterey and San Simeon, where jagged mountains hug the Pacific Ocean. Big Sur has been called the longest and most scenic stretch of undeveloped coastline in the contiguous United States.
The business section of Big Sur along Highway 1 is not an incorporated town, but rather a small community of buildings and services within the Big Sur River valley, known to locals as Big Sur Village. The interior region remains mostly uninhabited, while the coast is relatively isolated and sparsely populated, with fewer than 2,000 year-round residents and limited visitor accommodations. Big Sur stayed one of the most inaccessible areas of California until the highway was completed in 1937.
