Ragged Point, Ca
Breath Taking Views!
Wide sea, that one
continuous murmur breeds along the pebble shore of memory.
The journey to the Point starting from
California is an adventure you don't want to
miss. The Pacific Coast Highway twist, turns and bucks its
way past San Simeon, the home
of Hearst Castle. A few more miles down the road and you pass the
Elephants Seals. The coast line along this glorious trail is beyond
describing with human words.
After passing the seals, you find yourself motoring up a steep hill.
The road is scattered with curve after curve and you must go slow.
Actually, there is no way on earth to drive too fast on this
road unless you want to go over a cliff.
You might think you will never get there but just keep on driving and
finally you will arrive at one of most amazing views of the ocean you
imagined. If you want to create memories of the sea and your
vacation you are in the right place.
The point is like no other place on the
Central Coast. When you stand on the edge of the cliff and look
out across the Pacific you will be amazed at the beauty of the Central
Coast of California.
According to information from Ragged Point Inn - In
the 1950’s, Wiley Ramey and his wife, Mildred, were entranced by the
Point’s rugged natural beauty while visiting the Central Coast. This
magical area, which was once part of the huge Hearst Ranch, immediately
found a place in their hearts. Finally, in 1961, they persuaded
carnival owner, Monte Young, to sell them his rustic outpost, which
consisted of two gas pumps, a couple of travel trailers, and a snack
shack that sported a neon “EAT” sign.
Three important things to know about
The point offers tons of site seeing, a hike down a steep trail leading
to the sea and rock below. If you don't feel like hiking you can
always sit around with a good cup of coffee and watch the people.
There are people from all around the world who visit the point and it
can be fun to ask people where they are from.
- The Point Inn is located in the little square and if they
are full you can go back to Cambria to find a place to spend the night.
The point has a good restaurant which has a wide selection of food or
you can order a sandwich from the coffee shop and enjoy the view.
