Grayton Beach, Santa Rosa, Florida
Known for its classic “beach town” appeal, Santa Rosa is considered one of the spots to enjoy your best beach vacation in the United States. Though there are other beaches in this beautiful town, Grayton Beach is a gem just outside of Destin known for its white sand beaches. Vicky Shickles of Indianapolis notes that the beach is beautiful and well maintained. “It’s great because it is not overpopulated and is very quiet,” she says. Don’t miss these charming small towns in America.
Waikiki Beach, Hawaii
Hawaii is known for its laid-back atmosphere and beautiful beaches. Waikiki is noted as one of the best beaches on the islands because of its tranquility and easy access from most resorts and hotels in Honolulu. Lalie Williamson of PLACE has visited and notes that it also wasn’t very crowded. “It was great to just lay on a towel and read without worrying about being disturbed.” Another reason it makes her best beach list? The clear water perfect for swimming.
