In a land not so far away…
Terranea Resort celebrates the best of California, set on 102 acres of natural landscape on the gorgeous Palos Verdes Peninsula. Imagine panoramic views of the blue Pacific Ocean and lush nature life greeting you when you arrive to this expansive eco-friendly resort. Being less than 35 miles south of Los Angeles, Terranea is a must for a getaway with dogs.
We had a much-needed mini vacation and felt like we were a world away. The coastal bluffs set a beautiful view and somehow the water looks bluer than any California beach I can remember. You can even spot gray and blue whales migrating alongside dolphins! Along with Weston and Fira, we got a good amount of exercise thanks to the expansive walking trails and grassy fields that we all explored.
For the adventurers, make sure to take advantage of all the activities they offer: stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, guided hiking trails, horseback riding, a golf course, the beach cove, oceanfront yoga and even a Pilates studio. The beach cove was my favorite. An oceanside path leads you to a small sandy beach and tucked away in the corner is a little beach cove and cave.
A dog lover’s favorite escape and a dog’s dream…
All rooms have private balconies — most of them with ocean views. Pups are also welcomed with their own fluffy dog bed and bowls. Weston and Fira loved being able to scamper out the balcony doors and play in the yard right outside (and so did we!).
As for food, we hardly left the resort. There are so many amazing options from fine dining to casual cafes. I actually loved the Spa Cafe so much we went twice. 🙂 The dishes are the perfect, healthy, Californian cuisine. Make sure to try Nelson’s — set cliff-top above the Pacific Ocean and the most dog-friendly restaurant in town. Many locals come here with their pups (we spotted a lot of happy dogs!) to enjoy the drinks, comfort food, outdoor fire pits and the spectacular sunsets.
Luxury, natural beauty, California vibes…
Just for you and your dog.
