Being from Florida, it’s hard for me to not be disappointed with northern beaches. I was pleasantly surprised to find Chesapeake Beach, MD, just an hour away from home! It has a netted swimming area (to keep out jellyfish), a fishing pier, full facilities, grills, and is very clean.
What is your favorite beach–for both a quick day trip and for a longer stay? Maybe we can discover more hidden getaways!

I absolutely love Isle of Palms outside of Charleston, SC. I’m a FL beach lover myself but that beach ranks pretty close up there.

I really love ANY beach but my 3 favorites (so far!) are:
– Paradise Cove in Malibu
– Secret Beach in Kauai
– Black’s Beach in San Diego

I grew up going to the MD/DE beaches and of those my favorites are Rehoboth and Bethany. Theyre probably about 4 hrs from Woodbridge.
I also love the Outer Banks. Anywhere is good but I’ve been to Corolla Light and Kitty Hawk which I like.
The islands off of Georgia. I’ve now been to Sea Island and Jekyll Island and both are amazing.
And lastly, Sanibel Island off of Florida.

@PitBulLover: I definitely want to get to the Eastern Shore, but I’m so scared of the Bay Bridge traffic!
@Oneeleven: That is so beautiful!

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: you are missing out on so much! Not just the beaches, but Annapolis and a lot of other cool/historic places. Bay Bridge traffic isn’t all that bad, especially if it’s not a holilday weekend. Have you been to Assateague or Chincoteague? Those are fun places too!

I love all the Caribbean islands that I have been to, Dominica being one of my favorites, we snorkeled on the Champagne Reef and that was awesome. I don’t really care for Ocean City here in MD, I guess cuz I’ve been there a million times in my lifetime. Can’t remember going to OBX

The beaches in Grand Cayman are beautiful..most of the beaches in the Caribbean are amazing (St. Thomas, St. Maarten). And though I’ve never been there, Varadero Beach in Cuba looks gorgeous from pictures I’ve seen.
I also love Miami Beach, but I’m biased 🙂

the one that is 5 minutes away from my house:p
ok sorry i know that was bragging.
south florida has amazing beaches. i don’t like the gulf coast of florida at all compared to the atlantic. but then again i’ve never been over to mexico and seen the REAL gulf so i’m sure it’s beautiful.
but the south florida east coast beaches aren’t too shabby at all. in the summer here, the water is crystal clear turquois with beautiful palm trees and nice sand, etc…
Dania Beach and Hollywood Beach with the boardwalk are really nice down here.
