A Guide to Summer in Monterey

A Guide to Summer in Monterey

Monterey is an absolutely gorgeous destination to visit during the summer months. The city and the county both beckon travelers throughout the year with world-class beaches, wine, and culture—all of which can be improved by some sunshine. From lazing out in the sand, to some adventures, and key recommendations—these are some ways to enjoy the summer in Monterey.

Hit The Beach

Monterey Bay is a calm, lively, massive body of water that has its special brand of breathtaking beaches. One of the best ways to enjoy them is by staying with The Sanctuary Beach Resort, which sits on an undisturbed stretch of Monterey Bay coastline that’s quiet, scenic, and perfect for letting the kids run wild, or spacing out in a book, or taking a nice swim.

Get Physically Active

As easy as it is to lay back and relax in Monterey, it’s almost just as easy to get out into the world and move around. In the summer, the weather is more likely to be inviting when you head out for a Monterey adventure like paragliding, or sailing. You can also explore the local area on one of The Sanctuary Beach Resort’s stylish Dutch-inspired Republic Bikes, and then come back and cool off with a dip in the bay.

Drink Wine

Summer is an ideal time to take a trip out to the various vineyards in Monterey County, at which you can sample some of the most sought-after varieties in the world. Check out this Sanctuary Beach Resort post  for some recommendations on the best local vineyards to visit, and if it’s warm, get ready for some refreshing whites, and sumptuous roses.

Take Part In Fun Summer Events

Summer in Monterey is stacked with fun and exciting local events. If your trip to the vineyards has you reeling about the local wine scene, be sure to check out Rosé By The Bay—a tasting party on the water on June 30th. There will also be established local traditions taking place at the end of the summer, like the Monterey County Fair on August 31st.  

Rest & Relax

Most importantly, if you take the time to visit Monterey this summer, be sure to use that opportunity to rest, relax, and take care of yourself. Life can get especially easy here at The Sanctuary Beach Resort, where the beach is right there, and amazing food is available at our onsite restaurant the Saltwood Kitchen and Oysterette, and soothing treatments are plentiful at our onsite Serenity Spa.
