California favorite beaches

California favorite beaches

This post was originally shared on blog.flavioderoni.ch and has been moved here in the process of merging the sites together.

My top five beaches of California are:

BeachReason
Newport Beach, O.C.* clean beach + water, also not overcrowded
* stores and places to eat just around the corner
* Newport Pier beach walk
* nice big waves
* shallow -> you can walk into the ocean, it does not getting deep that quickly
Balboa Beach, O.C.* clean beach + water, also not overcrowded
* nice big waves directly at the shore
* Balboa Pier, some stores and also places to eat just around the corner
* place of lots of (body)surfers
* steep -> beware of rip currents!
Manhattan Beach, L.A.* clean, wide, sandy beaches
* less crowded than Santa Monica public parks with picnic tables, restrooms and so on sports activities such as beach volleyball, swimming, body boarding and surfing
Mission Beach, S.D* really big beach with lot of space beach walk
* Balboa Park and other stores/restaurants right there
* shallow -> you can walk into the ocean, it does not getting deep that quickly
Moonstone Beach, Cambria* dark (almost) black sand small beach between coastline
* Without wetsuit it is definitely too cold to take a full-body-bath up here :D, but just to relax it is definitely suited whale watching beautiful sunsets
