Combine vast ocean with towering mountains, and throw a hot tub into the mix, and you have a holiday fit for royalty. The dramatic landscape of Big Sur is renowned the world over, and everyone has seen those stunning pictures. What makes Big Sur so unique is how the gigantic Santa Lucia mountains just seem to rise straight up off the ocean floor, and make for spectacular cliffs and peaks. The mountains are usually swathed in a soft mist, so the whole place takes on a dreamy, ethereal ambience. Spot the whales and sea otters as they make their way through the water, and spend plenty of time hiking the trails along the edge, so you can soak up the magic of this place. In the evenings, return to your romantic glamping rental, where you can while away the sunset soaking in a blissful hot tub.
