Best US Beaches: My Top Picks

August 4, 2018

If you are planning your next vacation, and you want one that is by the beach, then you won’t have to go too far from home; there are plenty of great beach spots in the US to explore. There is nothing better than being able to relax by the beach, swim or surf in the sea, and not have to travel too far to get there. So with that in mind, here are a few of my top picks:

Hawaii (Big Island)
The big island of Hawaii is called the big island for a reason. And as such, it has so much variety and plenty of beaches to see and explore. There are so many unique things about the big island too, such as a beach with green sand, and some incredible natural wonders like waterfalls and small coves. Some of the series Lost was even filmed there.

St. Augustine, Florida
Florida has a lot of beaches to choose from, but St. Augustine is one of the best. It is one of the least crowded, and is really easy to get to. The waters are calm, which make it a great place for families, as well as for relaxing, swimming, or other things like paddleboarding. There are quite a lot of places to explore close by too. So don’t just think of Orlando or the Keys when you think of Florida.

San Diego, California
San Diego is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the country. So it goes without saying, that there are plenty of beaches to explore, and they are all pretty spectacular. The next time you’re in the area, you could use this list and choose one of the pretty beaches to visit:
*La Jolla Cove Beach
*Coronado Beach
*Pacific Beach
*Flat Rock Beach
*Ocean Beach City Beach

Martha’s Vineyard, New England
The island in New England is a pretty famous one, as it is often seen as a place for the famous and rich to escape to. And while it isn’t cheap, there are some stunning and quite varied beaches, ranging from Lobsterville Beach to South Beach. With it being an island, there is plenty of amazing seafood to be had too. But it is a stunning place with a pretty chilled out vibe, so makes it a great place for friends, solo travelers, or couples.

Hilton Head, South Carolina
Hilton Head can be quite a busy beach, as it is a great place for fitness fanatics (the sand is quite hard meaning that biking and walking or jogging on it can be much easier). There are so many things in the area, though, so you can take a break from the beach and head to one of the many local restaurants. It is a great location for boating too.

Monterey, California
Compared to many other southern California beaches, Monterey offers a pretty chilled out and relaxing vibe, as it has quite a vast coastline, meaning you can be quite spread out from other people. If you are a nature lover then it is a must, with the nearby Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, as it is a thing of real beauty.
