You might have caught a glimpse of Bacara Resort & Spa during the 2014 season of The Bachelorette, or read about it in Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Reader’s Choice Awards. The sprawling, Spanish-tiled complex is a perennial fan favorite, but the focus here is on the tranquility offered by the Gaviota Coast, a special stretch of beach that fosters incredible diversity. North America’s first inhabitants fished these waters, and today members of the Chumash tribe continue to honor their heritage. Bacara teamed up with local Chumash herbalists, artists and writers to construct a nature trail that immerses guests in culture and natural beauty.
