5 Must-See Beaches in California

Published

on

When you think about California beaches, you probably picture Southern California’s sandy beaches, filled with beautiful people surfing, sunbathing, playing volleyball, or tossing around a Frisbee on the sand. While there are plenty of those down south, with the state’s approximately thousand miles of beaches, there are plenty of other types, which are truly must-see.

The Top 5 Beaches in California

Baker Beach, San Francisco

If you just purchased one of the Oakland houses for sale, you’re less than 20 miles from Baker Beach, which offers one of the best views you’ll find of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take advantage of the great photo-op and enjoy a mile-long stretch of golden sands that lie at the base of rugged cliffs just west of the famous bridge. It’s the longest, sandiest span of shoreline in the city.

Black Sands Beach, Shelter Cove

Part of the Lost Coast in Humboldt County, about midway between the Oregon border and San Francisco, is Black Sands Beach. Centuries of erosion from the gray-shale cliffs along the shore resulted in its striking appearance, while its remote location means you’re unlikely to be bumping elbows with others here. It’s a secluded, tranquil beach that stretches for 3.5 miles – at the southern end, nudists come to sunbathe. Others come to enjoy surfing, peaceful strolls, and beachcombing.

Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur

Pfeiffer is one of the world’s rare beaches with sands that range from violet to deep purple.  Located along the central coast in Big Sur, the color comes from the manganese garnet in the steep cliffs that surrounded it, with the greatest concentration found at the beach’s north end. You’ll see more purple right after a winter storm as the elements speed the erosion process. When the turquoise waves crash against the shore, the contrast is absolutely stunning.

Greyhound Rock Beach, Davenport

Located near the tiny town of Davenport, Greyhound Beach stands out as it provides tranquility away from the crowds and great wildlife watching too. There might be thousands of people packed in like sardines in Santa Cruz, just 10 miles south, but here, even during the busy summer months, you might see more elephant seals than people. The short, steep walk down to the sand, and the fact that it’s hidden from passersby on the highway, keeps it wonderfully peaceful and crowd-free. You’ll see Greyhound Rock jutting out into the ocean – a relatively easy climb up provides a perfect spot to watch the dolphins that frequently pass by.

Coronado Beach, San Diego

The “crown jewel” of Coronado Island, Coronado Beach is known for its powdery soft sands that sparkle in the sun, caused by the high concentration of a silver mineral called mica, resulting in a particularly stunning mile-and-a-half-long stretch. Often named among or at the top of lists of the country’s best beaches, its calm cobalt waves make it ideal for families with young children to splash around in the water, and for beginners to learn to surf too. Many are also drawn here for the sunsets, with crowds gathering just before dusk to enjoy the mesmerizing colors.

Have a virtual visit with Santa this year with Airbnb

Wanting to help the Christmas community continue to earn income during what would normally be their busiest time of year, it is calling all Santas, elves and reindeer to submit their idea for an Online Experience idea. It will also be partnering with Santa Visits USA to offer even more ways to meet Santa Claus and the entire North Pole gang this year. These include Christmas magic with Kris Kingle himself, a holiday-themed bedtime pyjama party, a visit with head elf, Buzz Twinkletoes, and even a murder mystery show with Mrs Claus.

“According to a new report by the Fraternal Order of Real-Bearded Santas, nearly a third of their members surveyed will not be taking part in in-person visits this year,” says Airbnb. “As many of Santa Claus entertainers worldwide live on a fixed income and are reliant on their income from appearances during the holiday season, this new reality has created serious economic hardship for countless Santa performers.”

Guests can also enjoy Santa Claus around the world, with special experiences designed for families of all backgrounds, including people with disabilities. These include a “Virtual Visit and Story Time with Santa,” “Mama Claus Holiday Joy,” “Sign Language Santa,” “Meet Santa Claus in Lapland” and “Santa Storytime” with an award-winning author. In addition, hosts are sharing their own holiday traditions from around the world so people can feel festive from home, such as “How to Throw a Holiday Dinner Party,” “Create recycled puppets for the holidays” and “Sing Holiday Songs with a Broadway Star.”

Airbnb will provide additional support to Santa Claus entertainers who are interested in becoming Online Experience hosts, helping them to make a seamless transition to virtual visits. Further information is available here, and you can read about the holiday experiences already available here.
