Things To Do in Monterey

California’s Central Coast is known as one of the country’s most beautiful regions, and Monterey Bay is easily among its crowning jewels. The Sanctuary Beach Resort invites you to experience it all in luxurious comfort, putting you near the best things to do in Monterey. Whether you’re here on a romantic escape, family vacation, or group getaway, you’ll find the perfect activities to complement your stay.

One of the area’s biggest highlights sits just outside your door: the Pacific Ocean. Staying here, you’ll enjoy private access to a gorgeous stretch of sandy beach perfect for lounging, swimming, beach bonfires, and all kinds of fun water sports. When you aren’t in the water, you’ll find the protected Marina Dunes Preserve on the other side — a beautiful area for quiet strolls and picnics.

There’s more to enjoy here than just the beach. The resort is located only 15 minutes north of downtown Monterey, where you can explore the iconic Old Fisherman’s Wharf, the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, and a selection of fantastic seafood restaurants. The area is also full of spectacular wineries, and the colorful city of Santa Cruz is a 45-minute drive away.
