Search by beach, city or zipcode

We created to share our love of California’s 1,264 mile coastline. The editors and owners of this site personally visit the beaches to keep our information current. There are nearly 1000 beaches already profiled on CaliforniaBeaches and every now and then we find another one hidden along the coast. If you find a beach access that we don’t have covered, please let us know. Also, we have recently released our first list of the Top 10 Beaches in California and would love to hear what you think.

To find beaches, you can browse by county or use our interactive map to zoom in on the area you are looking for. At any time you can use the search located at the top of our website.

Our goal is to keep you connected to your favorite beach destinations and to inspire you to visit places you never knew existed. If you want to be inspired and informed about beaches in California, then join 200,000 others who follow us on Facebook.

After visiting beaches we would love to hear what you think by sharing comments on the bottom of the beach pages. Each beach review gives you a chance to get a California Beaches T-shirt.

Enjoy our fabulous beaches!

Bryce & Doug, Founders

PS – Sometimes words and pictures aren’t enough, so we created this video to show why we love California beaches.
