At this cliff-top resort—the only inn and restaurant for miles around—glass walls in most rooms open to awesome ocean views. Though not especially luxurious, some rooms have spa tubs, kitchenettes, and fireplaces. The restaurant ($$–$$$) is a good place for well-made American fare (sandwiches, salads, pastas, and main courses) before or after the winding Highway 1 drive. Even if you're just passing by, stop to stretch your legs on the 14 acres of lush gardens above
the sea; you can pick up souvenirs, a burger, or an espresso to go.
