20 Best Beaches In The US You *Need* To Vacation On
1000 Steps Beach, California
Another Orange County gem, 1000 Steps Beach in Laguna Beach is the road less-traveled. For beach-goers looking for a tourist-free haven off the PCH, you’ll get in a little workout as you pass Instagram models and local fitness enthusiasts on your way down to the beach. Those 1000 steps aren’t just a pithy name, and there’s no other way to get to the 400 yards of crystal clear waters and pristine sand. The sea caves and gentle waves attract boogie boarders, swimmers, and explorers willing to make the trek for the ‘gram or a chance to hobnob with actual Angelenos.
