The Highway 46 West area begins at the junction of Interstate 101 and Highway 46 West, also known as Eric Seastrand Memorial Highway and Green Valley Road, depending upon where you are. It ends at the coast and if you turn left on Highway 1 you will pass Harmony and Cayucos on your way down to Morro Bay and the rest of the South Coast.
If you turn right on Highway 1 you will reach Cambria in a couple of minutes. You can stop and spend some time at Moonstone Beach or the Village, or you can proceed north to San Simeon, Hearst Castle, and Piedras Blancos.
At Piedras Blancos you will find the elephant seals during breeding season and the lighthouse. If you keep going north you will eventually reach Big Sur.
