Down by the Sea
One Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA 92629, USA
Down by the SeaThe scenic, cliff-backed beach at the Monarch Beach Resort is tops for body boarding and surfing. Instructors hold classes seven days a week (reservations required) for children with at least moderate or higher swimming skills. Or you can just spread out some towels on the golden sands and soak up the Southern California sun, perhaps after you've constructed a sandcastle by the sea.
