Summer Sanity Savers: Week 5

Summer Sanity Savers: Week 5

It's already Week 5 of our Summer Sanity Savers and the theme is BEACHES

These 3 beaches are family-friendly and a great destination to beat the heat. Hope you all enjoy sandy shores and sunny skies!

 

Waddell Creek Beach:

Address: 3600 CA-1, Davenport, CA

Waddell is one of the highest rated beaches in California! But, somehow, it has stayed a small, well kept secret...

If you decide to venture out to Waddell, you're bound to see plenty of people out braving the waves on their boards (it's really cool). The best thing about this beach is that there are other activities, like beautiful hikes, right around it. So if you find yourself getting tired of the sand, check out the forest!

There is a parking lot- and bathrooms- for the beach, but you will also find people parking along the highway. 

 

Capitola City Beach:

Address: Capitola Beach, Capitola, CA

Capitola is probably one of the most "instagrammed" beaches we have in California, and for good reason!

In addition to those cute, colorful houses you see online, there is also an amazing beach and friendly downtown area. After you're done enjoying the cool ocean breeze, you can grab food at one of the restaurants lining the shore, or simply enjoy a stroll through Capitola Village. 

The only caveat to this beautiful beach are the crowds. If you're planning to spend the day at Capitola, try to leave no later than 9:00am to beat some of the rush- it'll be worth it! There is plenty of metered parking, so don't be discouraged if you don't immediately find a spot.

 

Natural Bridges State Beach:

Address: 2531 W Cliff Dr, Santa Cruz, CA

Natural Bridges is another lesser-known gem of the Northern California state beaches. 

The shoreline is bustling with wildlife, including sea creatures in the tide pools down a ways on the beach! If this isn't enough, you can also explore the land beyond the sandy beach where you'll find the Monarch Butterfly Preserve and Moore Creek Trail.

Parking is $10, and there are plenty of well-kept bathrooms scattered around the entire park!

 

If you're enjoying these lists, be sure to share them! Summer fun is always best paired with friends :)
