From the storm-lashed Pacific Northwest to perpetually sunny Southern California, winter is the perfect time for a romantic coastal getaway

Sand between the toes isn't a pleasure exclusively reserved forsummer. Neither are long walks on the beach or longer views ofcrashing surf from a rocky blufftop ― especially when, at theend of the day, you don't have to go home.

Reserve a night (two-night minimum on weekends unless noted) atone of our favorite inns ― all are right on a beach or bluffwith rooms overlooking the sea ― and even bad weather can'tspoil your escape.
