A Playground of Wellbeing: Your itinerary for relaxed luxury and sophisticated fun


WALK THIS WAY: Your footprints in the sand

Occupying an especially picturesque stretch of The Strand, The Seabird Ocean Resort & Spa has a front-row seat to the Pacific. Leave your shoes—and care—in your resort room. And, let the tide be your walking guide. Our favorite two-mile loop on Oceanside Harbor: North Jetty to South Jetty and back again. Walking this soft stretch of sand increases your connection with nature; The natural beauty of the seashore provides the ultimate backdrop to engage in quiet problem-solving and enhance mindfulness. It can set the tone of your entire wellness weekend. Plus: Everything tastes better after a long walk. Whether it’s brunch and a Bloody Mary at Piper or an afternoon cocktail in The Shore Room. Reserve your body holiday here. 

YOUR HIGHER SELF: Level up your yoga

North County San Diego is the North American birthplace of yoga. And no place does that moniker seem more strikingly breathtaking than during a yoga class on the rooftop. Nextdoor, our sister property Mission Pacific Beach Resort hosts an all-star line-up of local yoga instructors. With 360-degree views, classes are held on the same perch where The Bachelorette was recently filmed. Stake out your yoga mat high above the Pacific and repeat after us: There’s no place like Om. Reserve your mat here.
