Most of us Coast/Island dwellers have at least one. But - pray tell - where in the world is your favourite beach located?

I have a listed few. Will post my pics/locations once I dig them up. Until then, I look forward to seeing your fav beach spots. Please share.

My beach list experience is mostly centered in Florida, though I've visited beaches in Texas, Northern California, southern France, and Peru.

Siesta Key, Florida is an easy #1. Beautiful baby powder beach, very wide. It makes top 10 lists fairly often.

30A Walton County Florida beaches (Santa Rosa area) is #2. Beautiful emerald waters. Lack of commercial high rises and chain stores/restaurants gives most of these beaches a very local and generally not too crowded feel. It's also a fairly easy drive from Tennessee.

I constantly harken back to [and reminisce] my late teen years. Back then, there were no cellphones, no internet, no 100+ TV channels. But in place of all that - in my case at least - there was a certain tropical island beach, a mere 7 miles from our home which I frequently jogged to. It was named Cerro Gordo Beach in Vega Alta, Puerto Rico.

This was my "Go To" escape place when I was a mere youth in the late 1970's. Cerro Gordo's air was fresh. Its waters were crystal clear. Its warm sands caressed the feet. And its waves were as lazy as the days were long.

Good as all else, it took nothing more than $1.50 to get something to eat and drink before my return jog, walk, or hitchhike home on a late Sunday afternoon. Those days were magical, and will always hold a sacred place in my heart.

The best days of my life were lived, enjoyed, and experienced . . . in Cerro Gordo Beach.
