California’s northern coast is as vast and wild as the Pacific gets. Drive five hours from San Francisco and dive in with a surfboard (rentals, $15 for a half-day) at Moonstone, a shallow, sandy beach with a good beginner break. Bring your climbing shoes: the sandstone rocks that stud the beach make Moonstone one of the region’s best bouldering areas. After that, kick back at the Trinidad Inn (from $75), a ten-room lodge with fire pits and groves of towering redwoods.
