When you choose Mar Monte Hotel for your boutique accommodations along the American Riviera, you’ll find yourself mere steps away from the celebrated sand-and-surf that makes Santa Barbara, CA one of the Central Coast’s prize jewels.
Our Hyatt Unbound Collection hotel sits right across the street from the Santa Barbara beachfront, making us the perfect choice for the quintessential coastal escape to the American Riviera.
Enjoying East Beach & Other Sands on a Mar Monte Hotel Getaway
Enjoying one of our boutique Unbound Collection rooms or suites here at Mar Monte Hotel, you’ll be a stone’s throw from the long, inviting seashore of East Beach, one of Santa Barbara’s premier, central beachfronts.
Besides glorious views out to the Santa Barbara Channel, East Beach includes a number of beach volleyball courts as well as playgrounds, lifeguard stations, and other amenities.
Or hop on one of the Mar Monte Bikes we make available to our guests and head west for Leadbetter Beach on the other side of Santa Barbara Harbor. Along with surfing and other watersports, Leadbetter Beach is an absolutely fabulous place to kick back and soak up a Pacific Ocean sunset.
Waterfront & On-the-Water Fun in Santa Barbara
Speaking of surfing, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ride the waves on a Mar Monte Hotel getaway, given how convenient we are to the American Riviera oceanfront. Maybe you’re already a dyed-in-the-wool waterman or waterwoman, but, if not, there are multiple local surf schools to help you learn the ropes, with forgiving, beginner-friendly breaks in the vicinity.
Or head out for stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking, charter a sailboat or take a sightseeing cruise, or go whale-watching within the Santa Barbara Channel. The scenic offshore wildlands of Channel Islands National Park are a bucket-list destination close at hand.
Of course, you don’t actually have to get out on the water to enjoy long walks on the beach and Pacific vistas. Your Mar Monte Hotel room or suite puts you within easy reach of the historic wooden pier of Stearns Wharf, a classic place to enjoy the oceanside (with, among other attractions, the touch pools and other educational wonders awaiting at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center).
