IMO, it depends on what you want to do on the beach.

If you're a surfer, the West Coast is definitely for you (Oregon and Washington included too). If you just want to swim in calmer, warmer waters, then the South Atlantic and/or Gulf Coast are for you.

So... I gave all of them a vote.

You obviously have never been to California beaches. Anything over 60 down here, and the beaches are packed. From Malibu, all the way down to San Diego.
Heck down in California, even the parks are packed when there is a little evidence that the weather will be warm.

Yeah, keeps the hurricanes away. One hurricane can kind of spoil a day at the beach.

When the water is 68-75 degrees, which is the typical summer water temp at California beaches it takes a few minutes to adjust to it, then it doesn't feel cool.

HA!!! well that's true. But the "meat" of hurricane season here is typically September or October, not July which is good.
