Best Beaches
Spectacular public beaches below the 5 star Montage hotel. There are several little areas, I personally like the last one which is very protected and hardly ever crowded. Walk the grounds above the beach, restrooms are A Plus and maintained jointly by the state and hotel since the beach is public but hotel guests use it also. Use the same beach as hotel guests paying $1000 per night. Go into the lobby before or after and enjoy piano music and a fantastic bar and view.

If you park in the state run parking lot there is a free shuttle which takes you to the historic area in case you can’t walk. The beachcomber restaurant validates parking for 3 hours with a $15 purchase. Tour the historic cottages and see one of the best beaches.

Best Happy Hours
Do you like Tapas style food? This happy hour is only for one hour M-F between 5 and 6 but they do take reservations. If you arrive early go upstairs to the rooftop to enjoy the view or head up after to enjoy the sunset. The happy works like this. Order a drink from the happy hour menu and receive one entree half off. Two drinks, two entrees half off, They are small tapas sized so I usually order two and take my second drink upstairs later to the rooftop to enjoy the view and see the sunset. The food is probably the best quality happy hour you will find since it's there regular menu,

I just love this place on a warm summer night sitting outside. This is off the beaten track yet not far from my house. The inside is nothing special but the outside is surrounded by canyons and the trees are all lit up with lights.. A Mexican Tavern on the Green without the price tag!

South African sprawling multi-level restaurant and music venue with valet parking. Fabulous rooftop on a warm night to go for happy hour or dinner. Middle level has a bar with some great music. Small dance floor but people manage!! Downstairs is a piano bar and dining. I like the food but not the South African wines!! Sticking with California or Italian. Very friendly place and a locals spot.
