Just spent a week visiting Audrianna in North Carolina and I have a confession. I think I like the beaches in North Carolina better than California beaches! Did I really just say that? With no kelp (so NO sand flies or other beach flies), warm water (we’re talking 80 -85 degrees), hot sun, surfing waves and gorgeous golden sandy beaches that stretch for miles, it’s hard not to love them.
California has a more beautiful coastline, with our rugged cliffs and deep blue waters, but for swimming and walking and hanging out on the beach, North Carolina beaches are fantastic! OK, maybe it’s a tie. Here’s a sunny day at Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina and a sunset over Half Moon Bay in California. Don’t want to start a west coast versus east coast best beaches war! There is something to love about both coasts. Oh, and it’s a draw on sharks, since both states have their share of shark attacks!
