An enjoyable route through some great countryside with fantastic views across the bay. There are sign posts to guide you( although we managed to miss on and go the wrong) along the way and we came across some nice areas to stop for coffee etc.

The Scenic 49 Mile Drive is so gorgeous that you should consider yourself lucky if you drive it! Just take your time, drive slowly, and take in the beauty. Such beauty is very rare to find it - if anywhere else. I recommend it.
