Relax by the shoreline courtesy of your very own beach butler - available at the Waterfront Beach Resort, a Hilton Hotel and Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa - who will treat you and yours to an effortless day at the beach. Perks include beach cabanas, complete beach setup, as well as food and beverage delivery. Your sand steward can even help curate a beach bonfire at sunset.
Now it's time to shop and explore Downtown. Walk Historic Main Street, lined with a delicate mix of surf shops and chic boutiques. Just a short walk south of the pier, Pacific City lands visitors in a coastal cool, carefully curated world of trendy boutiques - including many local Southern California brands. When you've almost shopped until you've dropped, revisit the water with a Duffy boat rental in Huntington Harbour. Stock up on snacks for the ride at nearby Trader Joe's.
Local restauranteur Alicia Whitney has you covered for dinner. Visit her first restaurant SeaLegs Wine Bar for boutique wine, craft beer, handcrafted cocktails, and small bites. Just across the way sits SeaSalt Woodfire Grill, Whitney's tribute to authentic Santa Maria barbecue. If staying seaside, Ways & Means Oyster House at Pacific City is a must-try, and BLK Earth Sea Spirits across from the pier specializes in hand cuts of Kobe-style beef - and a rockin' oceanfront patio.
Be transported to Venice, Italy, with a Sunset Gondola ride through the Huntington Harbour - one of Huntington Beach's most affluent and attractive neighborhoods. Cap off your night with a signature cocktail at one of our oceanfront lounges, like The Bungalow, SeaLegs at the Beach, or the Treehouse Bar at Paséa. Of course, don't forget about that toasty beach bonfire.
