A Guide to California's Big Sur

Along the Highway

Hurricane Point

Hurricane Point is a relatively high point on Highway 1 in the Big Sur region, and it is also very exposed to the north and south as well as to the west. When I get out of my car at one of Hurricane Point's three large highway turnouts, I don't question the name "Hurricane Point": it seems always to be windy there. There is a good view of Bixby Creek Bridge to the north.
