Driving to Point 16
Please Note: There is extremely limited parking, and driving is strongly discouraged. Shuttle service will be provided from Carmel-by-the-Sea through Big Sur. The schedule and locations will be posted on the website one week before the ceremony.
Drive South from Big Sur on Highway 1. Look for the Lucia Lodge on your right. You will pass art galleries and Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park first.
Just after you pass the Lucia Lodge, take your first right through an iron gate into Point 16. You will see some cottages, a general store, and a restaurant first. Just across the road is the entrance to the New Camaldoli Hermitage.
Bear right when you enter for parking. The ceremony and reception site is just a short walk up the hill.
Estimated Travel Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes without traffic
