If you are ever in San Diego, do not forget to visit Coronado Beach. Why so? That is because it is simply magical. It offers a long stretch of the beach full of clean white soft sand – as far as your eyes can see. The white sand gets golden glittery every time a wave hits it. This beach is also not very crowded, and it is a perfect beach for swimming, skimboarding, volleyball games, dog running/walking, and watching hot lifeguards. This beach is also where Hotel del Coronado is – that iconic hotel with turrets that inspired the design for the castle in the Wizard of Oz. In a nutshell, in Coronado Beach, you get the immaculate beach, crystal clear water, white sand, and hot lifeguards (yes, it has to be mentioned again), what more can you ask for?
The East Beach in Santa Barbara, California is famous for its bike path, palm trees, volleyball courts, and the East Beach Grill (that cool breakfast-lunch beachfront diner that serves the best blueberry pancakes available in this side of California). The good thing about this beach is that it is neither crowded nor large – it is simply just perfect. Spending a day to get away from the busy city life is something that most people do here. This is just that place to be when you want to leave everything behind – even for just a few hours – and then get back to normal life feeling refreshed and renewed. Thus, it automatically makes this list of best beaches in California.
