You spend the morning by the outdoor heated pool before heading to the spa for a spa treatment. After lunch, you head for a day out at the nearby beach, where you can participate in surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, dolphin watching, and other travel adventure activities.

Food & drinks at The Ranch at Laguna Beach
The star of The Ranch at Laguna Beach is the Harvest Restaurant which specializes in California harvested cuisine. They even have their own organic garden.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have a delicious seafood menu along with delicious California produce. Plus, there is a tempting cocktail menu.
The outdoor patio seating features specular Aliso Canyon and golf course views. We would travel to this resort just to sit on the Harvest Restaurant patio.
"The place in Orange County! My husband said, 'how did you find *the* place in Orange County?' And I couldn't agree more! We were seated outside on their patio and enjoyed the heat lamps and live music of Adam Lasher. He was incredible, and we ordered dessert partly because of him. Our server was great ... We started with their complimentary bread, and my husband ordered an amazing cocktail ... their dessert and cocktails turned out to be the highlights of our dining experience. We would come back here for sure! This restaurant is amazing for both brunch and dinner!" - MBN134050, Redlands, California on TripAdvisor.
