Beaches

Laguna Beach may be famous for its reality stars and fashion scene, but it also has one of the best beaches in California. The water at Laguna tends to be calm and is very clean, with the occasional stronger tide providing the ideal venue for surfing and other water sports. The main attraction of Laguna Beach is the warm white sands, perfect for playing volleyball, lounging in the sun or taking a walk along the beach.

Other popular South California beaches include Coronado, which welcomes water sports enthusiasts including bodysurfers, boogie boarders, tide poolers and swimmers, as well as whale watchers during the winter months. Venice Beach is popular for its beautiful sun-drenched weather and soft surf, but sets itself apart from other California beaches with its eclectic attractions including posing bodybuilders, artists, a 3-ring street circus and sand sculptors.

Beaches in North California tend to have a more sedate, tranquil feel, making them ideal for families with young children and more mature holidaymakers looking to get away from the bustle of places like Venice Beach. Cape Hatteras National Seashore extends for 115km along the Atlantic Coast and is distinguished by its tall, sandy dunes and foamy surf. For breath-taking views of the coast, climb the lighthouse here (the tallest in the USA at 60m).
