Whether you’ve got kids on spring break, an academic schedule following the same, or you’re just looking to escape a late winter that seems in no hurry to move on, we invite you to Mar Monte Hotel for a vernal getaway on the American Riviera!

Santa Barbara’s justly celebrated climate is just what the doctor ordered for a spring getaway, nourishing you with plenty of Golden State sunshine and balmy temperatures. With our Hyatt Unbound Collection hotel as your home base just a few steps away from the Santa Barbara beachfront, you’ll be perfectly positioned to soak up everything the season has to offer.

Springtime Activities on a Mar Monte Hotel Getaway

You can fill a Santa Barbara spring break with little more than sand-and-surf worshipping along our glorious Pacific strands and go home mighty happy indeed. Right across from the city’s beachfront, Mar Monte Hotel makes the ideal launchpad for beachgoing along the American Riviera. From East Beach to Leadbetter Beach and beyond, you’ll be spoiled for choices.

Then there’s the surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, and more on hand along the oceanfront. Take wave-riding lessons, go on a chartered sail, take a guided paddling tour: The sky’s the limit!

This time of year is also a fine one for whale-watching, although that’s really a year-round attraction along the Central Coast. Our migratory gray whales are readily spotted in the Santa Barbara Channel, with opportunities both for shore-based and tour boat viewing.

Wildflowers are bursting forth left and right during the Santa Barbara spring, ready for your botanical and shutterbug appreciation—from the Channel Islands just offshore to the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains in back of the city. Whether for wildflowers, views, exercise, or all of the above, spring’s absolutely prime time for hiking in our big and beautiful backyard. Take in the view from 3,995-foot La Cumbre Peak, check out the Lizard’s Mouth rock formation, pound out some mileage on the Tunnel Trail, or take a guided ranger hike in Channel Islands National Park.

Then there’s mountain biking, horseback riding (including along the beach!), hang gliding—well, you get the picture: Santa Barbara’s a fabulous place for outdoor recreation and fun, and spring’s ideal for it.

If you’ve got kids in tow, consider a trip to the Santa Barbara Zoo, or take in one of the area’s topnotch museums. A walkabout in the 78-acre Santa Barbara Botanical Garden, meanwhile, delights young and old alike.
