Designed to feel like communal beach house right on the sand of one of the best swimmable beaches in the area, Sur still manages to feel exclusive and unique. The space perfectly moves from indoor to out, and guests are able to enjoy their morning coffee in the open, breezy café, out on the shady deck, or under a beach umbrella, kicking back on a banana lounge. Pair your coffee with a selection of the finest breakfast foods, or stay for a fresh gourmet lunch. Just remember to leave 30 minutes after eating before you jump into the water!
2. Flora Farms
This huge organic farm might not have views of the beautiful ocean, but it is no less spectacular sitting among the native flora and fauna, mug in hand, watching the day begin across the desert and mountains. The days here start when the in-house baker fires up the oven to begin baking every loaf that is served in every meal. In fact, almost everything served at Flora Farms is grown on-site or hand-made from local ingredients. From Thursday to Saturday, enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the farm, or, make room for their famous Sunday brunches to sample the best of the menu!
