WorldMark Marina Dunes

This celebrated and unique stretch of coastline has, despite its popularity, remained surprisingly wild and pristine. Though you'll be drawn to the historic attractions, shopping, beaches, golf, scenic drives, wildlife and memorable towns nearby, a visit to Marina will simply not be complete without a stop at the first-rate Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Marina Dunes is located in the area made famous by John Steinbeck. Just seven miles north of Monterey, it's a land of sweet coastal air and rolling surf. Check out Fisherman's Wharf and the Old Monterey Farmer's Market. Step back in time on the adobe-accented Path of History walking tour or discover Cannery Row and the unbelievable Monterey Bay Aquarium. And you can play golf at incredible Pebble Beach, navigate the scenic 17-Mile Drive, or wander the tree-lined streets of Carmel-by-the-Sea, with its scores of art galleries and historic 1771 basilica mission.

Sure, San Francisco has the Victorian architecture and the cable cars, but Monterey Bay is the purist’s California. Henry Miller once said of the area, "This is the California men dreamed of years ago ... The face of the earth as the Creator intended it to look." And so it is. Monterey Bay has inspired artists from John Steinbeck to Ansel Adams.

To get a little inspiration in your life, drive just north of the city of Monterey to your resort at Marina Dunes. As you do, roll down the windows and take in the sweet coastal air. You’ll hear the sea lions and the roaring surf drifting on the wind. After you check in, check out Cannery Row and the unbelievable Monterey Bay Aquarium. There’s plenty to see and do as you sink into the history and beauty of this unique stretch of California coastline.
