  • Costa Del Sol Tanning
    Within a private chamber in Nob Hill, the team and high-tech equipment at Costa Del Sol Tanning help clients gild and streamline their guises. UV beds, both lie-down and standup, coax out melanin stores with four levels of lamp strength, and clients shunning the sun can enlist a master technician to custom-mist their pelt with an Infinity Sun tanning spray. The airbrush system emits a fog of natural botanicals that resist streaking and discoloring, delivering a more natural-looking tan than even the freshest Crayola markers. Slim-it body wraps work to tighten, firm, and detoxify sagging skin with far-infrared heat and specialized creams.

  • Electric Beach Tanning and Cruise Center
    The aquatic experts at Huntington Harbor Boat Rentals send mariners of all stripes into the scenic waters of Sunset Harbor on electric boats, standup paddleboards, and surfboards. They rent out watercrafts for temporary jaunts, which allow beginners to experience the freedom of paddling while standing up and entire families to collectively swear off land while aboard a 21-foot electric boat. For those more committed to their water sport, they sell standup paddleboards and surfboards. The professionals also invite explorers to get a new perspective on bending and balance with Yoga on Water.

  • Always Tan Skin and Body
    For more than 30 years, Always Tan Skin + Body's skilled staff of technicians has been devising its ever-changing menu of advanced spa treatments to restore stressed clients. The spa gets its name from a lineup of UV-centric tanning beds that gently bronze bodies in 12- to 20-minute sessions, but the staff of aestheticians and massage therapists run a full-service spa. Luxuriously heated massage tables cradle clients' cloth-draped bodies as certified therapists summon knots from the deepest layers of the muscular system with a variety of massage styles, including shiatsu and craniosacral. Though they specialize in therapeutic massages, the dexterous therapists easily adjust their kneads to accommodate clients' injuries, soreness, or migratory pancreases. To revive vivid or dull complexions, the spa administers microdermabrasions and custom facials backed by skincare lines such as DermaQuest, Image, and Le Mieux. Between treatments, clients can take a breather in the spa's quiet lounge, lined with black leather chairs and vibrant, lily-pad-themed paintings, while indulging in hot herbal teas and filtered mineral spring water harvested from the room's personal Niagara Falls?size waterfall.
