Pajaro Dunes Rentals Take Epic Family Trip to Monterey Bay


Planning your next family vacation? As holiday travel continues to increaseyou may be looking for the best places to reunite with your loved ones, near and far.

This secluded enclave of eclectic, family beach houses sits just above dramatic sand dunes that quickly give way to a stunningly pristine beach. Located just north of Carmel-by-the-Sea and west of Hollister, this hidden gem is one you will never forget.

With easy beach access and plenty of on-site activities, you’ll never have to hop in a car on this trip. Enjoy boogie boarding in the waves (bring a wetsuit!), relaxing walks along the beach and, of course, a beautiful setting to watch the sunset.

Even families who want a joint vacation but prefer to stay in their own space (rather than under one roof) are in luck as Pajaro Dunes Resort offers beautiful condos close together as well as multi-family homes.
