Just North of Hearst Castle is the Elephant Seal Vista Point where you can witness seal pups being born and harems being formed.
If you have never seen a 5,000-pound animal bathing on the beach, now is your chance. There are only a few places in the world where elephant seals live and even fewer places where elephant seals are accessible to the public.
Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery, or the Elephant Seal Vista Point off Hiway 1 is a spectacle that must be seen. Hundreds of elephant seals lined up on the beach, basking in the midday sun, are a wonder of nature that you won't soon forget.
Approximately 5.5 miles north of San Simeon on the ocean side of Highway One, is Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal vista point. Visitors can park and learn all about these magnificent creatures through educational and interpretive signs, by viewing the animals at close quarters, and through volunteer guides who, after graduating from Elephant Seal School, are able to help visitors understand these magnificent marine mammals.
