Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur’s Mini Yosemite

Pfeiffer Beach Big Sur

Comprising a little over a thousand acres, the beach above is named after John Pfeiffer, the beach’s cabin dwelling denizen since 1884. In hopes of preserving the bucolic beach, Pfeiffer neglected to sell his land to a Los Angeles developer in 1930 and instead sold 700 acres to the state of California three years later.
