Best Affordable Beach Resorts 2011
La Casa del Camino
Laguna Beach, California
Last year, the Spanish-inspired La Casa del Camino, in arty Laguna Beach, launched the Casa Surf Project, 10 one-of-a-kind suites dedicated to surf culture. The suite that’s inspired by the apparel company Quicksilver looks like it belongs to a surfer on a European ski holiday, complete with fur throws.
Don’t Miss: Home décor shop Trove (370 Ocean Ave.; 949/376-4640) for folk-art stools and mohair blankets.
