    Nothing beats having gorgeous ocean waters a few feet away in the summertime, and many San Diego hotels offer just that. Paradise waits at the fantastic L’Auberge Del Mar – the epitome of seaside luxury. Visitors will love spending a blissful few days basking in the sun and saying goodbye to their winter pallor as they lounge on L’Auberge Del Mar’s private beach.

    Sip a cocktail or two and listen to the relaxing sound of crashing waves, and then get out and explore the charming coastal town of Del Mar. A stay here or at one of the other wonderful hotels in San Diego will be a fantastic addition to any summer vacation.

    Cruise through La Jolla via bike or kayak
