Don't end summer without sneaking off to the coast — even if it's just for the weekend. Here are our favorite hotels by the sea
Some serious surfer cachet
You don’t have to be a surfer dude to enjoy the splashy surf suites at the Hotel La Casa del Camino. They’re done up with wall-size underwater-photo murals, surfboards on the walls, pillows made of boardshorts material, and, in some cases, views of the crashing waves from the window.
Pop up to the rooftop bar (the only one in town) for drinks and insanely gorgeous sunsets. From $229; 949/497-2446. –M.G.
