Embark on a Big Sur Romantic Getaway
Enjoy an Intimate Escape
An oceanside hamlet laced with quiet, meandering trails, Big Sur is among America’s most romantic locales. Wide, starry skies grace every evening, and the forest blankets the area in an air of intimate exclusivity. Aside from spending a romantic evening in one of Ventana’s villas, the area offers an array of other ways to spend a Big Sur romantic getaway.
Picnic at Garrapata Beach
Allow The Restaurant at Ventana to prepare a picnic lunch to pair with your favorite bottle of wine – enjoy the combination in the company of your loved one on the beach.
Sunset at Pfeiffer Beach
Take in one of life’s most simple – and sensual – pleasures: a magical sunset on one of the Central Coast’s most serene beaches.
Spirit Nests at the Spirit Garden
Climb to one of Big Sur’s signature spots – a spirit nest – and rekindle memories and passion with your partner.
Jade Hunting at Jade Cove
Go on a search for treasure along the California coastline with that special someone. The memories are free, just like the precious stones you collect.
Couples’ Portraits in Big Sur
Take a set of photographs to commemorate your romantic trip to Big Sur. Our in-house photographer knows all the best backdrops and the most stunning spots.
Full-Moon Midnight Hike
Set out on a guided midnight hike and explore the environment miles from the nearest city lights. The moon and stars sparkle and shine from this picturesque point of view.
Soaking in the Esalen Hot Springs
Taking a skinny dip in these hot springs is therapeutic and scenic – the springs, open between 1am and 3am, are perched on a cliff high above the Pacific.
Take an evening ride to watch the sun set over the Pacific from your position on stunning Molera Beach.
Classic Films Under the Stars
Enjoy a signature film while lying under the wide skies of Big Sur. Similar to a drive-in theater without cars, the Forest Theater in Carmel and the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur show films three nights per week during the summer.
