 Personal Experience: Out of all the jaw-dropping scenic spots along Big Sur’s coast, what set Los Padres Beach apart?  Well I can say that what I enjoyed about this area is 1) there was nobody else there but us, 2) it is still beautiful in comparison to the other beaches and 3) We were accompanied by a handful of turkey vultures!  It added a very mystical touch having these large birds hanging out with us amongst the sea and fog.  I am nicknaming it Condor Beach because of this. This area seemed to be their territory.
