Which sentence is correct?

It was a holiday, and we planned to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the peace and calm of the beach and to enjoy ourselves for a while.

They're both OK.

The first suggests that getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city by going to the beach for peace and calm, and enjoying yourselves, are two separate entities.
The second suggests that you will enjoy yourselves by getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city by going to the beach.
