Most of the very expensive houses in Pebble Beach are hidden behind old-growth trees. It is quiet, secluded, and somewhat gloomy in foggy weather, which occurs quite frequently on the Peninsula in general, and in particular where it meets the Pacific head-on.

Pebble Beach is a gated community, but differs from most gated communities. The Pebble Beach Company gets $9.25 in revenue per car from tourists driving along the 17-Mile Drive. Residents are issued small license plate badges that are attached near their cars' license plates.
