A Perfect Winter Day in Monterey

A Perfect Winter Day in Monterey

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the perfect time to plan a coastal winter getaway to Monterey, Ca! Trade in snow capped mountains for white sand beaches and ski runs for oceanside trails and walking paths – because it’s all right here this season at the Portola Hotel & Spa!

Coffee Time!

Start your day with a hot coffee from our Peet’s Coffee at the Portola! Enjoy a seasonal drink like the Dark Chocolate Orange Mocha or a Holiday Spice Latte. For the traditionalist sip a Peppermint Mocha Latte – no matter what you order, the tastes of the season will emerge at Peet’s!

Bay Views & Beach Time

Hit the trail, with views of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary! Lace up your sneakers instead of lugging those heavy skis and snowboards – and head out for a morning walk, run, or even bike ride. As you “coast” along the trail, take in the sights and make sure to dip your toes into the sea at Lovers Point Beach in Pacific Grove (located along the path). Listen to the waves crash and take a moment to spot sea birds, and even a sea otter or whale spout!

Have a Whale of a Good Time
