Esalen is open. Travel Tips. Hiring

Esalen is open. Here are a few tips for getting here. Or want to stay longer? We're hiring.


Public Night Bathing

By Reservation Only

Please note: the hot springs are closed temporarily due to road conditions. We will reopen for night bathing after the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge is rebuilt and Highway 1 is open again to our north, estimated in mid-October.

A wonderful way to experience the healing waters of the Esalen hot springs is to join us for public night bathing from 1:00 am to 3:00 am. Reservations are required.

The cost is $30 per person, payable by credit card.
Reservations are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Reservations are available online from 9:00 am PST/PDT daily. Same day booking applies during much of the year. Public Night Bathing is generally available 7 days per week depending on weather, with the exception of some public holidays and Esalen events. Please note that we do not accept large group reservations.
