Best Beaches in California You Would Want to Be At

UStravelia Staff Oct 14, 2018
Give yourself a break from your mundane life and get a revitalizing treat in some of the best beaches in California.
Beaches are one ultimate destination to wind up with friends, family or even when alone. They are one of the most majestic creations of Nature, where she shows the land slowly disappearing into the vastness of the water.
The wide blue ocean lying stretched to endless miles and touching the sky at its horizon, is one cool and soothing sight for the eyes.
How does it feel to stand knee deep in the cool clear waters of a beach and gazing at the approaching waves of the sea? Splendid, isn't it? Sunsets may be a common feature for everyone. But, watching the same at a beach is just another awe inspiring illusions of Nature.
It seems as if the great red sun which lights the entire world, is becoming weaker and helpless in front of the depths of the ocean; so helpless that it shrinks into darkness and deep sleep.

For Surfing and Swimming
