Why stay 3 nights?  

Day 1:  Hearst Castle is located 8 miles North of the Inn.   The Castle offers multiple daily tours.  Across from the castle is the William Randolph Hearst Memorial Beach.  A popular beach, this protected cove offers visitors pier fishing, kayak/paddleboard, picnic tables, barbecue grills, and an eucalyptus forest to explore. A short walk from the beach is Sebastian’s General Store.  Inside you can enjoy a causual-chic grass fed Hearst burger and the Hearst Ranch Winery wine bar. 

Day 2:  23 miles North of the Inn is Salmon Creek Falls. This is your opportunity to explore the southern part of Big Sur.  Between Cambria and Salmon Creek Falls are many unpopulated beaches with no cell phone reception.  One of my favorites is San Carpoforo Beach.  Salmon Creek Falls, Ragged Point Fire Road trail and Buckeye Camp trail system offers amazing picnic spots like at Estrella Camp, swimming holes, and hiking.  Just south of Salmon Creeks Falls is Ragged Point.  A perfect stop to enjoy a cup of coffee with amazing views.  Also between Cambria and the falls are the most interesting critters called Elephant Seals.  Well worth a stop.

Day 3:  No drive day.  Explore the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve.  Catch the trail a few blocks from the Inn.  Hike all the way to the ocean.  Take a book, postcards, and journal to Moonstone Beach.   Enjoy Cambria’s many restaurants, coffee shops, galleries and yoga studios.
