“used for healing for over 6,000 years”

Esalen’s cliff-side hot springs have been in ritual and healing use by the Esselen Indians and others for more than 6,000 years. Coming down the hill you will see the upper level with its outdoor massage deck and “living” roof planted in native coastal grasses. This upper level has its own hot tub equipped with a special lift for handicapped access in addition to a wheelchair-accessible changing room, shower, and bathroom.

At Esalen Hot Springs and Esalen Institute, you can soak in an ocean-facing hot spring, get a massage, or simply meditate and contemplate the meaning of just about everything. It's a perfect stop on a road trip down Big Sur.
