Santa Cruz & Environs

The natural beauty of Santa Cruz provides ample opportunity to relax the mind, body, and spirit.

Coastal Redwood Green Forest

Coastal redwood forests cover much of the area just inland from the coast, with many county, state and national parks that preserve the towering, inspiring redwood trees.


California beaches and cliff coastal areas are all public lands.


Sand beaches, cliff walks, wharfs, and Santa Cruz harbor are accessible from Jasmine Garden Retreat Center by  walking, biking, driving and public transportation.


For people interested in delicious cuisine, the arts, music, theater, and other cultural events, the town of Santa Cruz three miles away offers a great variety of entertainment.
