Santa Cruz is one of California’s premier central coast beach towns offering beautiful panoramic views of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Its beauty not only resides in its land and seascapes, it also boasts a diversity of cuisines, activities, and shopping that has something for everyone.
Situated between the ocean and the mountains, Santa Cruz offers everything from romantic getaways to family fun, relaxation to adventure, casual to fine dining. With its temperate climate you can relax on one of the many sandy beaches of the Pacific Ocean, bring the entire family for a fun-filled day at the famous Beach Boardwalk, taste incredible wines and tour many of the vineyards nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
It is truly a place for all. Santa Cruz is home to the West Cliff Inn, blending historic elegance with soothing modern luxuries. West Cliff Inn is situated on a bluff overlooking the ocean and steps to the beach, the Wharf, the Beach Boardwalk, and Santa Cruz’s unique downtown shopping area. After you partake in a bountiful breakfast or evening wine and hors d’oeuvres, take a walk along West Cliff Drive to catch the great views of the bay or stroll through downtown, just 10 minutes away.
For dinner, Soif Restaurant, Wine Bar & Merchant is a great California farm to table cuisine where all the ingredients are fresh, local, and organic. Laili Restaurant is also a great option if you want to taste the flavors of the Silk Road and try superb Central Asian cuisine. The Cellar Door Restaurant and Wine Tasting Room is also very popular amongst our guests. Feeling Adventurous? Hop aboard the Chardonnay II –a 70-foot luxury sailing yacht- for a one of kind excursion on the open water!
West Cliff Inn also offers fantastic packages, and you can find details on the website here.
