About Stillwater Cove Beach in Pebble Beach, California

The public beach at Stillwater Cove is near the Pebble Beach Beach Club inside the private community of Pebble Beach. This is a white sandy beach that extends out below the Pebble Beach Golf Course (duck if you hear “fore!”). Stillwater Cove is known for scuba diving, but there are restrictions to the number of divers per day. Call the resort in advance to inquire about diving reservations. Touring companies sometimes offer kayak tours from Sillwater Cove into the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Similar to nearby Carmel City Beach, this is a white sand beach that is good for sunbathing. The main difference is that Stillwater Beach is narrow. If you walk farther east (left from the pier) there is more dry sand. To enter the gates of Pebble Beach you must pay an entrance fee, but at least they give you a map. Since you paid to get here, you should plan to drive the entire 17 Mile Drive loop unless you have done it before. To get to Stillwater Cove Beach, turn off 17 Mile Drive onto Palmero Way and then follow Cypress Drive to the end at the Beach Club. You can offload stuff at the beach access next to the pier, but you’ll have to park back at the tennis club or Casa Palmera parking lots.

We drove the 17 mile drive and stopped at this beach, which was wonderful! Loved the white sand in our toes! We accessed it from the golf course, and it was an easy walk to the beach. Next time we want to go kayaking here.
