Nestled into the Pacific coastline, just south of San Francisco and Santa Cruz, Monterey Bay offers the longest coastline of any county in California. Its rugged bluffs, crystal waters, and incredible sunsets provide a picturesque backdrop and slow-pace ambiance for a relaxing vacation. With natural splendors and one-of-a-kind local attractions, it’s hard to go wrong with Monterey Bay vacation rentals.

From sandy beaches to Spanish missions, there’s no end of things to see. Take a trip along Monterey’s wine trail, hike to a natural hot spring at Big Sur’s Los Padres National Forest, or stroll along Old Fisherman’s Wharf. For family fun, find a sea glass gem at Pebble Beach, and explore Monterey Bay’s Aquarium, known for its wildlife and habitat conservation.
