Doheny Beach, California
Orange County has a lot of beautiful locales to offer, but Doheny Beach isn’t one of them. This beach is a site for “urban runoff,” seagull poop, and sewer leaks, and has been found to have high levels of bacteria in the water for years. Recent efforts to clean it up have managed to improve the water quality so locals remain hopeful that the beach can be rehabilitated. If the lack of swimming facilities isn’t a problem, you can still visit for the kayaking – whatever you do, don’t fall in.
