Happy World Oceans Day!
“The ocean is a mighty harmonist.” –William Wordsworth
Yesterday marked a day of international awareness and celebration. People across the globe took to the ocean to revel in the beauty and power that unites us all. So on the heels of World Oceans Day; we decided to compile a list of five of the most incredible coastal drives around the world. After all, summer is for cruising…
1. BIG SUR: California
Right in Robin’s backyard in the Central Coast, with iconic sights including, Point Lobos, Carmel, Monterey and the renowned Bixby Bridge, there’s plenty to see and do up the coast of Highway One. In fact, make a pit stop at one of the many restaurants Big Sur offers, grab something to eat and toast to the amazing views with Truvée wines, you'll be driving past our prestigious vineyards along the way.
2. COROMANDEL PENINSULA: New Zealand
Down in the magical land that Andréa grew up in, separating the Pacific Ocean from the Hauraki Gulf and the Firth of Thames, the Coromandel Peninsula is a world famous drive because of its white sand beaches, inherent forest, and the Cathedral Cove.
3. OREGON’S COAST: Oregon
Bordered by the evergreen forests, Oregon’s Coast is one of the most desired routes to travel in the United States. From the famous Haystack Rock that erupts 235 feet above Cannon Beach to the scenic corridor of Cape Sebastian, this seaside favorite makes for one beautiful drive.
4. CORSICA COAST ROAD: France
The majestic beauty of this Mediterranean gem is exactly why Corsica Coast Road is on the list. With so many splendors it’s hard to focus on just one.
5. AMALFI COAST: Italy
While driving up the Amalfi coast, take a moment to appreciate the Santiero Degli Dei, also known as ‘The path of the Gods,’ which is said to be the single most stunning view on the drive, where the Sorrentine Peninsula meets the Mediterranean Sea.
The ocean is the heart of our planet and we should treat it as such. For more information on how you can help raise awareness on the importance of ocean preservation, visit www.worldoceansday.org
