There are a multitude of things to do while you're in Big Sur.
One of which is to simply "Do Nothing."
Sit by a stream and listen to the breeze drift through the redwoods. Lay
on a beach and watch for whales and dolphins... your "do nothingness" is
limited only by your imagination.
During winter the whole population of California Gray whales migrates
twice past the central California coast. Once when going to the warm
lagoons of Mexico to spawn and breed, and once again when returning to
their feeding grounds in the frigid waters off the coast of Alaska.
During summer the coastal waters off of Big Sur are host to the largest
mammals on earth, the Blue Whale. In addition, Humpback whales are
sharing the waters as they enjoy the abundant krill. You can spot whales
from most any point that you can see the ocean.
On land, enjoy our feathered friends the California Condors. Condors are
commonly spotted soaring above the Big Sur Valley
If your interests are geared a little more towards strenuous activities then
there are several places where you can take a day hike. Local day hikes include
long beach walks, traversing deep into a redwood tree lined canyon, or climbing
high up on a ridge top to capture the breathtaking panoramic views of the Big
