Highway 1 is a legendary road that follows the Pacific West Coast of California from Redwoods in the north to Orange County in the south. Beautiful and undeveloped, this road trip is a must for any surf lover.
Start at Huntington Beach, just south of Los Angeles, before heading north through Malibu, Santa Barbara, Hollister Ranch and Mavericks (paddle out, if you’re brave enough).
Camp out on the beaches of the northern counties Sonoma and Humboldt. Make sure you visit one of the wineries along the highway and take a look at the epic Redwood trees along the way.
When it comes to your road trip playlist, there’s an endless number of songs to choose from – we recommend Ventura Highway by America to get you started.
