Visiting Santa Cruz

If beach holidays are your thing, then Santa Cruz is the place for you. Lined with sandy beaches, oceans brimming with marine life, and countless places to grab a cocktail beside the ocean, Santa Cruz has perfected the beach lifestyle. Make sure you bring your togs, your sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen.

Take a walk through the city, you may be lucky enough to catch one of the local City Arts projects – it could be anything from a charcoal drawing a large metal sculpture. Santa Cruz has a wonderful, relaxed feel that encourages artists to explore, and there are many relaxed cafes that promote local art.

It may be the perfect opportunity to nab something for your own home!

It is, of course, impossible not to mention the beach talking about Santa Cruz. The beaches are spectacular, with warm soft sand and cool, clear water, and if you’re feeling energetic, you can have a go at one of the many volleyball games on the beach, or take a stroll along the boardwalks.

There are many, many marine creatures that frequent the Santa Cruz beaches, and if you wait long enough, you are likely to see at least one. Waiting is much easier when you have a cocktail in hand, so relax at one of the bars overlooking the beach, and really get into the beach spirit.

If you’re feeling a little too relaxed, and don’t want to plan your own holiday, call My Adventure Travel on 1300 018 390 and have us do all the hard work for you. Then you can get back to watching the sun set across the ocean horizon while you sip on a chilled Long Island Ice Tea and watch the local children playing on the wharf.
