Plan a Kid-friendly Getaway

When traveling with kids, the key to planning the perfect vacation is to make sure that everyone in the family will have fun. This may seem obvious, but keeping younger family members engaged, especially if there is an age gap between siblings, can get tricky.  

At Monarch Beach Resort, we make a special effort to provide everyone in your family with compelling and immersive activities they’ll love.

TIPS FOR TRAVELING WITH KIDS
Start the planning process with getting them involved in choosing some of the kids activities. The best part about Monarch Beach is that activities are offered conveniently and safely, on-site.

AGES 5 TO 10 YEARS
  • Sand Crab Beach Club – A program unique to our coastal surroundings, Beach Club instructors introduce the little ones to the Pacific Ocean with a safety lesson and an introduction on ocean awareness. Activities include an array of hands-on experiences—from tide pool walks and scavenger hunts to body board lessons and sand castle creations.

AGES 8 AND UP
  • Coastal Sup Lessons and Tours – Paddle board experiences at Monarch Beach are fun and educational. Choose from a one-on-one lesson with a certified guide or a group experience with two or more people.
  • Perfect for beginner and experienced paddlers.

AGES 5 TO 12 YEARS
  • Monarch Beach Kids – Enjoy a relaxing round of golf or a trip to the spa while the kids are occupied with adventure-packed activities like treasure hunts, beach exploration, lawn games, art projects, volleyball, cornhole, foosball, ping-pong and more.
  • Schedule half or full day, or Friday/Saturday night.

FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
  • Family Tee Time
  • Marine Adventures at the Ocean Institute - Touch live tidepool animals, create ocean art and learn about a wide variety of marine wildlife including sea turtles, whales, and sharks.
  • Trail Hikes
  • Whale Watching Tours
  • Surf Lessons
  • Rent a Cabana for a Family-Friendly Pool Day (and a five-star view of the Pacific)
  • Rent a fire pit and roast s’mores on the beach
  • Enjoy a family BBQ expertly prepared by the Monarch Bay Beach Club culinary team.

A Coastal Getaway: Sun-Kissed and Kid-Approved

Travel with your kids and still enjoy a relaxing, exclusive experience—one just right for your family. Few resorts are as alluring—yet kid-friendly—as Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California.
Children’s amenities include child sized robe, slippers, helpful sink-side stool, and a surprise welcome amenity. For an extra dose of magic, book our Fireside Terrace Suite, complete with a private terrace and open-air fireplace (for roasting marshmallows).
