Nature Walks

Nature Walks at The Sanctuary Beach Resort

Revel in our unique, natural surroundings with a complimentary discovery walk, which departs at 10 am every Saturday and Sunday from The Lodge. Led by local naturalists from Monterey Peninsula Guides & Hiking, the easy two-mile loop will take guests through the picturesque trails of the Marina Dunes Preserve, which is directly adjacent to the resort. After taking in the beauty of the dunes while learning about the lush plants and protected wildlife, the hour-long walk will culminate on the beach where guests are invited to beach comb and observe the adorable seabirds playing along the wave line.

Reserve a picnic lunch basket for your outdoor adventure by completing the door hang menu in your room the night before your excursion. Choose from a selection of starters and mains (link out to full menu) created by our team of culinary experts at Salt Wood Kitchen & Oysterette for $30 per person. The lunch will be delivered to your guestroom, at a time of your choosing, ready to travel with you on your outing.
