California Beaches Named to Coastal Living’s Best Vacations List

Coastal Living is excited to announce the 21 Best Beach Vacations in the United States in the July/August issue, on newsstands now.


Our editors compiled a state-by-state guide to the coolest getaways for every type of traveler, including the best spots for golf, fishing, relaxing in the sand, spotting wild animals, and more. The list is complete with lodging information for each location (and even notes pet-friendly hotels) so our readers will be sure to stay a while when they visit. East Beach in Santa Barbara made this year’s list for its white sands, gorgeous views of the Channel Islands, and the wide variety of activities that are offered at the Cabrillo Boathouse and the Four Seasons Biltmore. Van Damme Beach on the Mendocino Coast was also included for its stunning natural beauty and for its proximity to the quaint and pet-friendly Little River Inn.
