This mile-long stretch of road experiences some of the most dramatic geological shifts anywhere. Located just east of Abalone Cove Shoreline Park, this area has seen more than 100 homes lost to landslides since 1956. Yet, apparently unfaded by this startling fact, people continue to build large estates in the area. Just driving through provides plenty of evidence of the area's infamous geologic history as the road is crooked and bumpy in many parts. Portuguese Bend is a must-see for geology students and a valuable educational tool for anyone considering buying oceanfront property.
