Recent storms have forced the closure of Highway 1 approximately 13 miles south of Ventana Big Sur. This closure extends from Ragged Point in San Luis Obispo County to just south of Deetjen's Big Sur Inn in Monterey County, a total of 44.6 miles. Ventana Big Sur is still accessible via Highway 1, but for those traveling north to the resort, a detour is required.
Note that GPS and in-vehicle navigation systems may not reflect the closure, so please follow the directions below.
Coming from Southern California, take Highway 101 North to Salinas.
Exit at South Sanborn Road.
Travel south on Sanborn Road (which will become East Blanco Road) to South Main Street/Highway 68.
Turn left on South Main Street/Highway 68 and continue approximately 18 miles onto Highway 1 South.
In approximately 34 miles, turn left on Coast Ridge Road. The resort will be on your left.
We look forward to welcoming you very soon.
