Long Island, and the southern NE beaches (Cape Cod, Block Island, etc.) are my favorite beaches.

California's coast is spectacular but not for the beaches, per se. Hawaii is in a class of its own and should be omitted from this discussion so that there can be a discussion.

I think the CA media give people a false impression of America's beaches. They must clean up the kelp and tell people to get out of their wetsuits when making those awful TV programs. East coast beaches are far superior. Also, the sun is on a better side. It's better to have your beach house windows facing east rather than west.
Only people who wear wetsuits in SoCal are surfers, because they stay in the water for a long time and most of them only wear wetsuits in the winter. The rest of us are man/woman enough to just jump in and get used to it. It's really not that cold in the summer, unless your used to 80-90 degree water, which to me is not that refreshing on a hot day. Also, the kelp is only washed up on beaches where kelp forests sit offshore. ie, Laguna Beach area, some of Newport, the whole central and northern coast, some of south OC's beaches, and some of San Diego's. So what you see on tv is prob how it actually is.

West coast beaches are the pretties. East coast beaches are the most fun. The Great lakes region is best for swimming. The Gulf is just beautiful.
