Carmel Highlands
south of Carmel California

Carmel Highlands is the most spectacular coastal community in the state, with fabulous houses clinging to the cliffs above deep coves. Most of the houses are hidden from Highway One behind fences and walls, but Sprindrift Drive goes right down to the low cliffs, so close that waves sometimes splash onto the roadway.
