One of the perks of staying at hostels is the fact that you have access to a kitchen where you can make your own meals – you get to save money and you’re more than likely to make a new friend or two while you cook. We also know though, that travelling is about the delicious experience of trying local foods and visiting quirky off-the-beaten-path spots, and we always like to share our favorites with the hungry and adventurous.
At HI USA, we believe in the power of travel to open minds and the power of community service to open hearts. Above all, we believe that these experiences should be rewarding – not costly. That's why, for the sixth consecutive year, we are offering groups across the country free overnight stays at HI USA hostels in January and February 2016 through our Great Hostel Give Back (GHGB) program.
What is GHGB?
There are so many reasons to love Point Montara Lighthouse and the cozy little hostel that sits pretty next to it at the edge of the California coast. And when you spend a night (or two) at HI Point Montara hostel, you’ll get to experience life by this beacon on an even deeper level that will make you appreciate it all even more, whether it’s thanks to the people you meet while you’re there or the opportunity to see the lighthouse under the moon and the stars.
One of the magical things about California is the cute beach towns lining the coast along Highway 1. Away from major cities, life here is a little more laid back and there’s a bit more authentic local culture to experience.
There’s quite possibly nothing better than a day at the beach, and when you stay at HI Point Montara Lighthouse hostel, you have access to some of the most beautiful pieces of the coast in California. The only question is, what are you looking for on your ideal beach day? Some people are all about the action of shore-side games and water sports, while others are content with a towel and a good book and sweet sunshine. Whatever your need, you can find it not too far from the hostel.
Now more than ever, travelers are becoming more conscious about the impact we’re all having on the planet, and how important it is to try and minimize our carbon footprints while we’re on the road.
