The rhythmic throbbing of the tide as it tumbled against the rocks welcomed us to Cambria. We’d come to the blue and white-trimmed Sand Pebbles Inn to enjoy California’s Central Coast. Perched atop a small bluff above Moonstone Beach in Cambria, the hotel has stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.

We rode out a violent storm from Antarctica here in complete luxury at the Grootbos Garden Lodge.
