A Top Ten List for Families at the Monarch Beach Resort

The Monarch Beach Resort’s AAA Five-Diamond Award and its number one on TripAdvisor status are not enough to impress some of its most demanding guests—kids. The resort instead wins them over with a pristine beach perfect for sandcastles, activities designed with them in mind like naturalist-led introductions to monarch butterflies, and a slew of adventures nearby, from electric bike rides to exploring tidal pools teeming with marine life. After going from the pool to the Pacific Ocean, from bike to surfboard, or from the golf course to game time, even the most critical kid will concede there is something special about the Monarch Beach Resort as they watch a spectacular sunset with a s’mores in hand.
