This gem is hidden in the Florida Keys. Bahia Honda State Park has 2.5 miles of white sand beaches along warm tropical waters, which are great for swimming, relaxing, or snorkeling! It’s like a trip to the Caribbean, no passport required. If you have made it this far, be sure to venture a bit further and stop by Key West, where you can say hello to the Key West Fresh Produce Team.

 

2) Folly Beach, South Carolina

Folly Beach is a family-friendly beach town 20 minutes outside Charleston, SC. We found it a great spot for our Spring 2018 photoshoot! Wide sandy beaches, sea oats and even a lighthouse which made for great backgrounds.

Lanikai means “Heavenly Sea”, and with a mile of white sand and calm turquoise water, it’s not hard to see how this beach got its name. It’s also a local favorite, hidden away from the resorts and tourists. Lanikai Beach is on Oahu’s windward coast in the town of Kailua, just 14 miles from Honolulu.

 

4) Indian Beach, Oregon

The beach is only accessible through Ecola State Park, which has miles of hiking trails, secret coves, and an old lighthouse! This amazing spot is just an hour and a half away from Portland, OR.

Seawall Beach is hidden on the edge of the Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area in Phippsburg, Maine. You have to hike 2 miles to reach the beach, but from the looks of it, it’s worth it. Seawall Beach is just across the Casco bay from Portland, ME.
