Day at the Beach
At your leisure
Venture down a stone staircase connected to Alila Marea and discover one of the county’s widest swathes of sand, South Ponto State Beach. A popular destination known for its exposed break delivering consistent surf year-round, Ponto’s other allures include high dunes, polished ocean cobbles, and having Batiquitos Lagoon just across iconic Highway 101.
Make your beach day even more idyllic with the help of our Beach Concierge. To check concierge availability, reserve a lounge chair and umbrella, or pre-order a beach picnic, in-house guests can text +17604215601.
