The SRF Meditation gardens is one of the most tranquil and peaceful place I've ever been. It is easy to sit in a wonderful place amongst the lavish gardens and close your eyes to connect within.

Beautiful plants and flowers, Ponds with colorful koi fish, the sound of the ocean down below and benches as places to meditate. A wonderful retreat from the noise of the outside world.

The Gardens are amazing and a great place for some photos as well as some quiet time. Plenty of places to just "be". Afterwards, we visited the gift shop that is full of all sorts of great and hard to find musical instruments as well as some beautiful spiritual art.

No matter what your religion you will love these well cared for, lush, gardens. High on a hill right next to the ocean, the landscaping and setting are perfect. Plenty of areas to rest and reflect. Plenty of paths where you can go on small adventures. Several places to look out to sea.......

We have an avid gardener in our family. He has an impressive garden of his own that he is constantly replanting and landscaping. For him gardens are a travel destination, so he has been to most of the well-known gardens and garden shows in California. Looking to include sites for everyone on our trip, I took a gamble on this meditation garden.

The family was enthralled! Although the garden is not expansive you feel as if you have walked into a hidden mythical world. The place is impressive from the landscape to the details to the health of the flora. Our garden fanatic was speechless over the work that had been invested. This was a trip highlight!
