Wow! What a great photo. How I miss the CA beaches, the fishing piers, the seagulls, wonderful weather, warm (sometimes hot) sand, etc.

Wrightsville Beach in NC is pretty nice. Famiy oriented and not AS crowded as other popular beaches.

Myrtle Beach in SC is so crowded it almost makes it unenjoyable. And the past few times Ive walked the strip at night people were shouting and getting into fights, nothing but tattoo parlors, drunks and people wanting to start trouble.....Seems that as long as you stay away from part of town at night youll still have a good time. So much to do there but lots of crowds.

Any decent beaches near Charleston, SC? Cil, your beach looks great. CarolinaJack, I'm familiar with some of the beaches that you picked so I know that you have great taste. Which has the bigger waves, the NJ or SC beach?

well, Isle of Palm SC and Sullivans Island beaches are nice not crowded and so so waves, but it is my home beach so I have to brag. Folly beach is awesome when not too crowded with a fishing pier, great surfing and lots of sand. all very near to Charleston minutes away
NJ Island Beach state park is just lovely, an hour from Philly. Cape May beaches are nice ok waves.

I can't stand the tourist trap, over populated, beaches. VA Beach is terrible, the Outer Banks are nearly ruined, although better Avonish.

Sanibel Island and other less populated beaches are more up my alley.

Virginia Beach, specifically, Sandbridge Beach, Va. Sandbridge is a little beach area southeast of urban Virginia Beach. It actually feels more like North Carolina's Outter Banks.
