In Big Sur you will not only find the best beaches and views of all, but also the best trails to hike. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, there's a trail that's just right for you and suits what you're looking for: an easy one to enjoy your day or a challenging one. Some of the ones to note on your itinerary could be Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Partington Cove, Salmon Creek Falls Trail or Andrew Molera State Park.

Big Sur for nature lovers

There's nothing more relaxing than being by the sea, listening to the sound of the waves and feeling the warmth of the sun, especially if you're someone who really knows how to admire nature. In Big Sur, you can get that natural touch by looking out over the coastline or watching the condors soar through the California skies. Moreover, if you're lucky enough, you might see sea otters floating by or the occasional whale far out to sea. And if you want to experience nature from a different perspective, there are plenty of places to camp, such as Big Sur Campground.

Top 7 travel tips in Big Sur

1. Practice at Pebble Beach Golf Course

This is probably the most famous golf course in the United States and was voted the best. So, if you are a golf fanatic, you will have to make a mandatory stop at this course, which also has incredible views and a whole history to learn.

2. Enjoy the viewpoints

An excellent idea is to take a car and drive along all the cliffs of Big Sur to enjoy the best views where the sky merges with the sea. The great thing is that, along the way, you'll find lay-bys where you can leave your car and get even more of the beautiful scenery in front of you.

3. Hike the trail to an inlet

If you're adventurous and like a challenge, this activity is for you. At Partington Cove, there is a 3-kilometre round trip trail.

However, it's totally worth it to be able to do it and see the rocky inlet that was once used to transport logs.

4. Have the most rewarding hike on the planet at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
