Welcoming guests to a secluded retreat tucked between majestic sand dunes and the bay, Sanctuary Beach Resort is an ideal starting point for a memorable Monterey vacation. On-property attractions speak both to nature and luxury, while nearby destinations offer world class wine, seafood, and adventure.

The adjacent Marina Dunes Preserve and state beach protect the bay’s shoreline and provide your Monterey vacation with a front row seat to the region’s natural beauty. Sanctuary Beach Resort’s 19 acres of oceanfront property is one of few Monterey hotels by the beach to offer full resort services, including pampering at Serenity Spa, dining at The Ranch and cottage accommodations with beachfront views.

Downtown Monterey, with its world-class aquarium and whale-watching excursions, is just fifteen minutes away. Just a half-hour inland, revered wineries in Carmel Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains beckon wine aficionados and adventurous travelers alike. The stunning coastline along Route 1 by Big Sur is an hour south, while San Francisco is two hours north.

Guests stopping off on a coastal road trip, visiting Monterey specifically, or looking for a quiet beach getaway all find what they need right here at Sanctuary Beach Resort.
