There are few spots more perfect for relaxation and fun than the beach. Whether you like to lay back and relax, read a book in the great outdoors, surf, swim, or ski, nothing beats the place where the land meets the sea. So where are the best weed-friendly beaches in the US?
1. Manele Bay, Hawaii
The Hulopo’e Beach on the island of Lana’i is a breathtaking sight. Situated at the base of the Four Seasons Lana’i at Manele Bay, it is a marine preserve with tropical fish and the occasional dolphin. With 70°F water, you can snorkel in one of the finest spots on earth.
2. Nantucket, Massachusetts
A New England fantasy with lighthouses, sandcastles, and beaches for everybody, Nantucket is peaceful. The summer is spectacular at Surfside Beach, while children have their own Children’s Beach stretch of sand.
3. Clearwater Beach, Florida
This 3-mile stretch of the Pinellas Peninsula splits Tampa Bay from the Gulf of Mexico. With white beaches, boating, dolphin-watching cruises, and museums and aquariums nearby, it is a tourist haven. Florida has plenty of beaches, but this one beats the Miami scene for family fun in the sun.
4. Coronado, California
In front of the spectacular Hotel Del Coronado lies one of the greatest beaches of all. Coronado Central Beach is perfect for boogie boarding, sand sculpting, swimming, tide pooling, you name it. At the north end lies Dog Beach, where even your pets can run free in the surf. That’s what I call family fun.
5. Schooner Beach, Alaska
Black sand and shipwrecks, this beach has it all. Beachcomb for driftwood and glass balls, or surf the miles of empty waves. At your back juts the summit of Mt. St. Elias, second-tallest in the US. A cooler weather changeup, it is beautiful nonetheless. Take your beach experience to a new level.
