Monarch Beach Resort just re-opened of its exclusive Monarch Bay Beach Club after a multi-million dollar renovation to its California beach club. Exclusive to resort guests and club members, the Beach Club encompasses signature beach experiences, ocean education programs, and beachfront dining with sustainably-caught seafood and fresh California cuisine.

Previously known as the Monarch Bay Club, the building has been closed since January and unveiled an upgraded, refreshed design with its opening, including a new name, logo, warm color palette, and indoor-outdoor feel with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.

The Monarch Bay Beach Club’s restaurant and the bar were re-structured to open entirely to the outdoors with an expanded bar counter with spectacular oceanfront views. With an all-new refined yet approachable menu of seafood and coastal cuisine, dishes feature local, seasonal produce and sustainably-caught seafood that reflect the coastline’s bounty and beauty, paired with iconic beach cocktails, local microbrews, and an all-California wine list. The restaurant has been ocean-friendly certified by the Surfrider Foundation.

The resort’s private club will continue to offer on-sand services including complimentary umbrellas, towels, and chair service for members and resort guests. The outdoor space now features enlarged patio restrooms with a more sophisticated look, members-only lockers and redesigned showers, new changing cabanas, and practical beach gear storage space. The Beach Lawn also received new chairs, umbrellas, and firepit tables for a picturesque lounge area for day-to-evening beachside relaxation.

Additionally, Monarch Bay Beach Club’s Ocean Adventures program offers guests equipment rentals and lessons for surfing, boogie boarding, and paddleboarding. With the renovation, Ocean Adventures reveals two new experiences; all-new window-bottom stand up paddle boards that allow riders to view the sea life below them and the ‘No Fail Surf Lesson’ which guarantees all students to stand up on a board. Additional programming elements include beachside family movie nights, live music, ukulele lessons and more.
