Why we love it: Big Sur is so beautiful it almost doesn't look real. While most of the beaches are off limits (though there are a few you can get to, like Limekiln State Beach), the real feature here is the hiking. You’ll see huge cliffs, waterfalls plunging into the ocean, lush vegetation, and maybe even dolphins and otters playing in the shallows. There are places to camp but book in advance because they fill up fast.
