Destination guide

Soak up the sun in serene seaside living

Tucked near the northern end of Monterey Bay by Sequel Cove, La Selva Beach is one of the several small communities clustered among the sweeping sands and rolling dunes of the Pacific coast. Home to people of a diverse range of cultures, the neighboring towns are known primarily for their vegetable and fruit production, making for some fantastic farmer's markets. A La Selva vacation rental will give you the classic California experience of sun, sand, and surfing, and plenty of other outdoor activities to boot. With weather this perfect, you might never want to leave.

Things to do

Everything from spiritual sights to sunken ships

Among the many beaches in the area, Seacliff State Beach particularly stands out, thanks in large part to the much-photographed hulking remains of the SS Palo Alto, a concrete ship that was sunk off the coast in 1929 and is visible from the beach's scenic pier. For a spiritual experience, venture up Mt. Madonna to the sacred Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple. A centrally located La Selva vacation rental puts you near prime scenery and wildlife viewing at sprawling green spaces, such as Forest of Nisene Marks State Park.


Surfers have their turf, and skaters gonna skate

The surfing in La Selva may not be as famous as in other parts of the state, but you wouldn't know from the small group of local devotees who show up every morning. The local beaches are also great for fishing, boogie boarding, and working on your tan, not to mention some killer sunsets. In town, the locals trade out the surfboards for skateboards. Hikers and mountain bikers flock to the local parks, which are also popular for camping, picnicking, and horseback riding. For a taste of local life, there's almost always a festival going on somewhere.


It's quite possible that this is the perfect weather

At a La Selva vacation rental, you'll enjoy moderate winters and dry, mild summers. All year round, the high temperatures are pleasantly in the 60s and 70s. Lows generally range from 40 to the low 50s, so you might want to pack a light sweater or jacket regardless of what time of year you come. You'll see the most rain between December and March, but almost none from June to August. There's no need to worry about snow, though fog is common on summer mornings.

Natural features

From the depths of the ocean to the tops of the redwoods

La Selva may mean jungle in Spanish, but today you'll have to head further inland to find the trees (though there are plenty there). Perched near the infamous San Andreas Fault, the town has the crashing waves of the Pacific beaches on one side, and the wooded peaks of the Santa Cruz Mountains on the other. The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park has a large concentration of California's famous redwoods, along with maples, oaks, and cottonwoods, among others. Offshore you'll find an incredibly diverse collection of marine creatures in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
