Top 5 beaches in the USA


Half Moon Bay, California

Escape to the Half Moon Bay Coastside after camp and surf on the monster waves at Mavericks, or simply just enjoy some chilled out vibes! This coastal area is just a short drive from San Francisco, part of the iconic ‘Pacific Coast Highway’ (Big Sur), which calls for one of the world’s most scenic road trips, connecting two of America’s greatest cities; San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Oahu, Hawaii

Be honest, we all dream of a trip to Hawaii and after a few weeks of camp craziness, there’s no better destination to visit for ultimate recuperation. The island, home to the world famous beaches of Waikiki, the state capital of Honolulu and surfing seas of North Shore, is sure to provide you with an incredible after camp adventure where you can choose to just rest, try your hand at surfing, or hang out with turtles (change of scenery from campers!)

Florida Keys, Florida

It may be a long drive, but a drive that is completely worth it! Stretching 150 miles from Miami to Key West, this drive is one of the greatest American road trips with plenty of opportunities for stop offs at some of the most picturesque locations. Enjoy plenty of sea, sand and sun, and make room for great food along the way - we highly recommend some fish tacos and a slice of Key Lime Pie for dessert! Be prepared for some unbeatable sunrises, sunsets and spectacular night skys.

Miami Beach, Florida

Another Florida beach…it’s not called the sunshine state for nothing! This island city boasts wide beach stretches, from the bustling, popular shores of South Beach, to the laid back areas of Sunny Isles Beach, we’re sure you’ll find an area perfect to top up that tan and if you’re old enough, be sure to stay for the nightlife!

Venice Beach, California

A list of American beaches isn’t complete without the iconic Venice Beach, located in the lively town of Venice, Los Angeles. Here you’ll be entertained with street performers, fitness fanatics, skaters and unbeatable Californian sunshine! Be sure to add this bustling beach town to your travel plans for a bit of end of summer tanning and insta worthy snaps, down the colourful boardwalk!
