Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Coast Guard Beach, accessible by bicycle or shuttle bus from the Salt Pond Visitor’s Center, was formed where a sand spit attached to the glacial cliffs. The sand is fairly coarse so the beach slopes steeply into the water.

Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach, Outer Banks of NC


Ocracoke, once the home of Blackbeard the pirate, is still a special place—it is my favorite getaway beach. Here you will find some of the wildest beaches in the country. Big surf dominates in late summer so families with children may want to come earlier in the year.

Kapalua Bay Beach, Maui, Hawaii

Kapalua Bay is a sheltered white sand beach on the north west side of Maui.  The bay is protected by two reefs that extend out on both ends forming a C-shaped cove making it ideal for snorkeling.

Siesta Beach, Sarasota, Florida

Siesta Key is the ultimate getaway for anyone wanting sand, surf and fun. Relax on America’s favorite beach, stroll through a charming village of colorful bungalows, shops and restaurants, or rent a bike, ride down the island and enjoy the Florida sun.

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, Oahu, Hawaii

Staring out at the circular-shaped shore of Hanauma Bay on the southeast tip of East Honolulu, you can imagine how this beautiful cove was once a volcanic crater. Today, this crater, likely flooded by wave erosion, is home to an important nature preserve and the island’s most popular snorkeling destination.
