This mile-long beach features a bird sanctuary in a lagoon, several different rocky outcroppings where the waves clash, and beautiful coastal plants. You will love the peaceful paths that offer seclusion for your ceremony. Come in the morning for the mist and fog, or show up later in the day when the sun is usually out.

Glen Oaks Big Sur

Commit to each other in a redwood grove that has grown for centuries. In the small hamlet of Big Sur, Glen Oaks is an exceptional mountain escape and retreat from the jagged coast. Venue rental and travel fees apply.

Loma Vista Gardens

Located in the heart of Big Sur along California Highway 1, the historic Loma Vista gardens offer spectacular views of Mount Manuel and the Ventana Wilderness. Loma Vista – which means “view of the hill” in Spanish – was developed by Alice Jaeger, granddaughter of W. B. Post (one of the original settlers of Big Sur) and her husband, Steve. Built to serve as an inn, diner, and gas station, the property became a main meeting point in the area. Today, Loma Vista Inn and gardens still serve as the de-facto town center. Venue rental and travel fees apply.
