One of the most-viewed TV series ever (and yes I am an outspoken fan), has some of the most magical landscapes you can find!

Big Little Lies

This series is one that changes the perspective of many things and showcases beautiful landscapes! Originally in the book, this series takes place in a city in Australia. HBO decided to take it to the California coast, giving Monterey and the dramatic Pacific shoreline a lead part. We also found rugged seafronts such as Carmel River State Beach and Del Monte Beach appear throughout.
