Romantic Beach Getaways
Santa Barbara, CA
Santa Barbara lures couples with its perfect climate, plus art, nature, and beaches. Check in to one of the Mediterranean-style oceanfront villas set on 78 acres between the Pacific and the Santa Ynez Mountains at the Bacara Resort & Spa. Then slip into your suit and hit the beach, hike trails in Los Padres National Forest, or take an afternoon to wander through the 65 acres of more than 1,000 species of plants and flowers at the botanic gardens. While you’re there, stop at the Japanese teahouse. It’s the kind of place where you can’t help but feel good—thanks only in part to the year-round warmth of the sun.
