About The Descanso Beach Club

Descanso Beach is one of the most stunning outdoor meeting and event venues in the world. Aside from the beach's abundant space and premier location, it offers many amenities that can turn this popular spot for sunbathing into a relaxed site for corporate retreats and meetings. As a private beach club it allows its guests to enjoy a cocktail right on the sand and throughout the facility. Whether you envision a private meeting beside the ocean or group dining on the beach under the stars, Descanso Beach Club can cater to your every need. The Descanso Beach Club features Presidential Cabanas, Cabanas and Chaise Lounges reserved in a private white sand beach area. Individual rentals are available and the entire area can be reserved for private parties. Adjacent to the Cabana and Chaise Lounge area are two fire rings directly in front of the ocean for the perfect evening dinner or meeting. Catherine's Terrace is a premier venue, perfect for your next corporate meeting, social event or wedding. Indoor seating in our ballroom can be arranged for an intimate group of 20 guests or a larger group of up to 200 guests.
