This unique monument covers the entire 840 miles of coastline of the state of California plus 12 nautical miles out to sea to protect the 20,000 reefs, islets, and rock outcroppings. Driving the beautiful Route 1 Pacific Coast Highway we visited parts of the national monument coastline from San Diego to San Francisco in the south and Klamath to Crescent City in the north. The area of Big Sur with its winding turns, seaside cliffs, misty coastline and beautiful beaches exemplify this national monument. We sprinted down long hills of sand to the Pacific Ocean, found large starfish in tide pools and saw beautiful sea stacks in the water.
