Third Stop: Halfmoon Bay

Third Stop: Halfmoon Bay

The next morning, it's a nine-mile drive to Halfmoon Bay, home of the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort (877/296-4593). Luxurious, private “tenthouse suites” are equipped with inviting beds, propane fireplaces, hydrotherapy tubs, and ample windows. A boardwalk links each suite to the main building and a first-rate dining room overlooking the Malaspina Strait. A day here goes something like this: Check in, book an outdoor massage in "the spa without walls," dine on fresh crab ravioli, and then hit the fine linen sheets.
