Top American Beach Vacations This Summer

Coast Guard Beach – Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Another gorgeous beach located on Cape Cod is Coast Guard Beach. It’s on the ocean side, close to plenty of accommodations as well as the town of Eastham. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to snag a rental house right on the beach – there are plenty of amazing houses to choose from.

This beach is typically less busy than some of the more popular Cape Cod beaches, which makes it easier to spot wildlife, like seals and whales. If you don’t feel like swimming, take a walk down to the Highland Lighthouse – the oldest and tallest lighthouse on Cape Cod.

Coronado Beach – San Diego, California

If you’re looking for a beach vacation destination that also offers a city atmosphere, Coronado Beach is the place to go. Located on Coronado, an island attached to the mainland by a small strip of land called a tombolo, Coronado Beach is a mere 15-minute drive from downtown San Diego. This makes it a perfect vacation spot – sun, sand, and city nightlife all in one.

Coronado is known for having beaches that literally sparkle, due to the large quantities of mica mixed in with the regular sand. Visitors can choose to stay on the island if they want, but there are plenty of trams and water taxis that make it easy to get to Coronado Beach from San Diego.

Sunset Beach – Oahu, Hawaii

If you’ve never been surfing before, Sunset Beach is the place to go. It’s just up the road from Ehukai Beach, where the famous Banzai Pipeline is located. However, Ehukai Beach tends to get way overcrowded with tourists during surfing season.

Sunset Beach is where the locals go. It’s not a large beach, but there’s ample parking, and plenty of space to sit and watch the surfers ride the waves. Make sure you pick up a snack from the vendors in the parking lot – you can buy a tasty smoothie, or a cup of the freshest, juiciest fruit you’ve ever had.
