3 days / 2 nights
Day 1- Check in, then check out.
After checking in to one of four TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awarded resorts, drop the bags and head out to the wide open beach.

Day 2- Discover the Zen
Breakfast at Banzai Bowls
Have a light and healthy breakfast at Banzai Bowls, a local’s favorite and one of Southern California’s original acai bowl and smoothie joints. Kick up your breakfast or snack game with endless combinations of fruits, greens and delicious toppings. It’s only a short walk to the beach for your invigorating yoga session.
No matter what your experience level is, an outdoor yoga session is sure to ground and inspire you. Get your toes in the sand, stretch and flow as the Pier and ocean serve as your backdrop to your morning beach yoga flow. You can either book a private session, or join in one of the many community donation-based groups that operate throughout the week. Please remember to bring your own mat (or beach towel) for community classes!
Grab a Healthy Lunch at Session’s West Coast Deli
After your refreshing yoga session, grab a quick and healthy bite to eat at Session’s West Coast Deli. Right across from the Huntington Beach Pier, Session’s serves plenty of healthy sandwiches, wraps, burgers and salads, all with yummy homemade sauces and dressings.

Escape the busy life in their Spa Courtyard, which offers a unique hideaway with its outdoor patios and lush landscape. Offering multiple private outdoor treatment spaces, you’ll drift away in your own exclusive getaway.
Beach Bonfire & S’mores
To round out a day of zen, it’s time to kickback by the fire - on the beach! Enjoy the sunset with a warm bonfire and delicious s’mores, the “All American” treat that is a combination of toasted marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers. Beach butler services can set everything up for you a lá Waterfront Adventures, or bring your own firewood and skewers to DIY.

Breakfast at Sugar Shack Café
Start the day off right with a traditional American breakfast at Sugar Shack Café.
