Savory Moments

Picture yourself waking up with the sunrise, sipping on a freshly brewed cappuccino and snacking on a tasty pastry at Bean & Barnacle. Or, maybe you want to sink your teeth into some Steak, Hash and Eggs while sipping on bottomless mimosas in our lobby art gallery at Octopus. Then… when it’s time to unwind and breathe in the salty air, imagine yourself with a delectable plate of street tacos, folding one into a savory bite just before sipping a tropical rum punch underneath rays of golden light as the band begins to play at Backflip Beach Bar & Kitchen. With three on-property dining outlets, there’s a tantalizing taste for everyone at Plunge Beach Resort.

  • Staycation with friends

    Our bungalows were clean, sanitized and perfect for the staycation we were hoping for! We were able to watch the sunrise and see the baby turtles head out to sea. I will never forget that!
