Girlfriends drop their luggage to hit the beach on complimentary beach cruisers and explore palm-lined surroundings along the 22-mile Strand, stretching across Redondo, Hermosa and Manhattan Beaches. After soaking up rays, gal pals freshen up for seaside dining at BALEENlosangeles, indulging in culinary creations in a whimsical, yet elegant atmosphere. Cocktails top off the night in the lively BALEEN bar area during a Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini-Tinis mixology lesson -- crafted from Absolut Peach vodka, crisp lemonade and fresh blueberries, served in a chilled, sugar-rimmed martini glass. The sound of the ocean provides the perfect wake-up call for girls to hit the open road in a MINI Cooper Convertible, top-down cruising the Pacific Coast Highway through Los Angeles County. Sporting wind-blown, salt-kissed hair, ladies catch a stunning sunrise during a surf and yoga class at El Porto Surf School, where beach bunnies get into form with a little help from sun-bronzed instructors. Wiping out after an early start, girls sink into plush, oversized chairs in the light-filled Living Room Lounge overlooking King Harbor with dramatic three-story windows. Baristas in the Lounge Coffee Bar provide the perfect morning pick-up, from a steamy cup o’ joe to frothy cappuccino, before heading out for a private shopping party at Lisa Z Boutique. Fashionistas complete the California Girl transformation with a personal shopper hand-picking the perfect outfit for a day at the beach or night on the town.
