Make sure your accommodations match the epic scenery the next time you visit Southern California.

Endless stretches of palm-tree lined beaches meeting blue ocean waves are some of the first things anyone pictures when they think of a vacation in Southern California. When you’re visiting the area make the most of your journey by matching epic accommodations with the scenery. From luxurious spas to sprawling seaside golf courses, check out these four must-visit SoCal coastal resorts.

Terranea Resort

The luxury resort lies within Los Angeles, but its tranquil seaside location on the Palos Verdes peninsula is as far away from the the big city as you can get. Terranea Restort boasts nearly 600 rooms, suites, casitas and villas on a lush, sprawling landscape. Every room has a patio or balcony with ocean views. Spend your days lounging at one of its four pools, dining on cuisine at any of its more than eight restaurants and bars or papering yourself in their 50,000-square-foot spa. When you’re ready for action, book a tee time at the Links at Terranea — a dramatic 9-hole par-3 oceanfront golf course — a collection of 9 championship-caliber par-3 holes, masterfully routed and integrated with each other and the natural surroundings.

The property’s 204 bungalows, guest rooms and suites and 128 villas are fanned out around their epic Coliseum Pool — one of the world’s largest circular pools — which also overlooks the Pacific Ocean. When you’re not strolling the 3.5 miles of protected coastline, you can enjoy playing a round of golf on their 36-hole Tom Fazio-designed course. The resort also features an acclaimed spa with 28-foot-high Palladian rotunda, wall of flowing water, 22 private treatment rooms, steam rooms, saunas and saltwater Roman soaking tubs.

The resort also boasts the Monarch Beach Links, an 18-hole championship golf course designed by notable golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. For something a little more relaxing, pamper yourself at Miraval Spa over a range of treatments and fitness classes.
