Activities/Attractions: La Selva Beach is a small coastal community located along the central coast near the Manresa Uplands State Beach and the city of Santa Cruz. It is also just off the scenic Coast Highway or Highway 1.
Manresa Uplands State Beach features a gorgeous stretch of sand and sea with swimming, surf fishing, clamming and other beach activities. The area is also famous for its bird watching and wildlife viewing, including tours of the Elkhorn Slough Bird Sanctuary, and whale watching boat trips nearby.
This whole stretch of coastline from Santa Cruz to Monterey is a treat for the senses. First of all, the town of Santa Cruz offers their famous Boardwalk and Amusement Park, swimming and sunning on Santa Cruz Beach and surfing at Pleasure Point.
Continuing south takes you to the picturesque seaside villages of Capitola and Aptos, and then on to the famous Monterey Peninsula. Here you can visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium, drive the world famous 17-Mile Drive, spend a day shopping and sightseeing in quaint Carmel or continue south down the dramatic Big Sur Coastline.
All along the way are miles of pristine beaches, antique shops, five star restaurants, oceanfront seafood restaurants and pro golf courses. Recreational activities in the area include kayaking, windsurfing, bicycling, hiking, and exploring tide pools and searching for sea shells. Le Selva Beach is quiet and private and makes a great home base from which to experience the whole region.
