The small surf town of Cayucos has remained miraculously immune to over-development for decades, despite its great wines to the east and white sandy beaches to the west. At this 1860s charming inn, the elaborate breakfast (included!) is nearly as good as the seasonally inspired dinner (four-course prix fixe). With sand dunes climbing hundreds of feet above miles-long beaches and eucalyptus-lined hiking trails, the Montaña de Oro park (a 25-minute drive away) is a must.
