June gloom is finally gone and sunny days are ahead of us! It's the perfect time to catch some rays and head to the beach! Here are some of our favorites beaches we like to spend our days at here in California. 

1. Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach is nicknamed "Surf City USA." It's where the US Open of Surfing takes place and is also home of the International Surfing Museum. Huntington isn't just a surfing beach, but it's also one of the few beaches in Southern California where you can have a bonfire at one of their pits! Grab a few friends, bring some hot dogs, and have a good time! Also, if you'd rather eat out, there's a Ruby's at the end of the pier, and plenty of other restaurants on Main Street, right off of the beach. 

2. Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach is great for a lazy day at the beach. Bring a volleyball, corn hole, or any other beach game and have fun! You can also rent bikes and ride along their bike path. In addition to the beach, there are a lot of different chic boutiques and delicious restaurants for you to enjoy!

3. Crystal Cove State Park, Laguna Beach

Crystal Cove is the perfect beach location for hiking and horseback riding. If you aren't into either of those activities, then there are tidepools and sandy coves for visitors to explore. This beach also has a beautiful world underwater for scuba divers to enjoy.  

4. Coronado State Beach, San Diego 

This beach is perfect for any occasion, whether it be a girl's weekend trip, or a family vacation. Coronado State Beach has beautiful glistening water, gentle waves, and beautiful views. It's a great beach for swimming, body boarding, boogie boarding or just hanging out!

5. Venice Beach

There isn't another beach quite like Venice! The Venice Beach Boardwalk is world famous and is a major visitor attraction because it's so unique. There are always street vendors, performers and artists along the walk. You can see anything from break dancing, to a magic show, and even broken glass walking. You can go to a fortuneteller or get a temporary henna tattoo. There is always something new to see at Venice Beach!
