Which city, in your opinion, has the best beach weather.

It might seem obvious for most people to choose a location in the tropics, but personally I prefer a more moderated 4 season beach climate. Its not like I go to the beach only for warm water. One can stroll down the shore on a cool fall/spring night for a breath of refreshing air or ride a speedboat with a windbreaker on in the winter. The only thing I do not want to do is wear a jacket during any season. Taking those factors into consideration, I would select Cape Hatteras, NC. Warm enough not to wear a jacket in winter and ride a boat. Yet, cool enough to enjoy a windbreaker winter, refreshing fall/spring weather with warm, but not hot summers.

Describe the location with your perfect beach weather.

Perth Australia in the summer has nice beach weather. You will get very hot days that can be spent at the beach.

What he said! Doesn't matter how hot the air is, if the water's too cold then the beach is no good.

Difficult question. I'm a sea person, but not a beach person - can't see the attraction on lying on the sand. I also like surfing, but hate being out in the sun all day, so I would say anywhere that isn't too low a latitude, but still has warmish water (20C+)

Probably Hawaii in the winter time, would be perfect.

Honolulu since it's warm and dry all year round.

Aruba is good too.

Sharm el-Sheikh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sharm is awesome, as is Hurghada. I swam in the sea there at the beginning of April 2012 and the sea was already pretty warm.
When I went in August 2010, it was like having a warm bath.

*Sea temperatures are just below the climate charts on the above link
