Lonely Planet review

Be lulled to sleep by the surf at this low-lying retreat hidden in the sand dunes north of Monterey. Reached via golf carts, townhouses harbor petite rooms with gas fireplaces and binoculars for whale-watching. Sunset bonfires bring out s'mores. The beach is an off-limits nature preserve, but there are public beaches and walking trails nearby. Pet fee $40.

Our independent authors have visited Sanctuary Beach Resort and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Along Highway 1.
