Escape the crowds on this beautifully preserved beach.

Asilomar, or “refuge by the sea” definitely lives up to its name. The beach is expansive and less-populated than other nearby destinations. With large sandbars and rocky outcroppings, it is a great place to enjoy sunset. 

This beach is also known for its premium surf, so expect a show from the locals! There are many staircases right off the road that lead you down to the ocean. Trails can be spotted all along the coast, and are well-maintained. There is nothing quite like sunset on the ocean with a bottle of champagne and good company.
