Many travelers think they need to fly internationally for the tropical vacation of their dreams. While there is an array of options outside of the country, there is also quite a few in the United States that offer everything a tourist needs at a more affordable price. Here’s our list of the top white sand beaches in the United States for when your travelers want a sun-and-sand vacation minus the passports.
Lanikai Beach, Oahu, Hawaii
This little treasure routinely tops the list of best beaches. Located in the Kailua on the Windward East side of Oahu in Hawaii, Lanikai Beach is over a half-mile long beach with clear blue waters cascading over the soft, white sand. Lanikai means “heavenly ocean” in the Hawaiian language and one visit to this idyllic spot, and it is easy to see why. Spend your time soaking up the sun or kayaking to the two offshore islands, the Na Mokulua.
Orange Beach, Alabama
The Alabama Gulf Coast offers a white sand beach that surprises visitors time and time again. Nestled on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Orange Beach offers miles of sugar-white sand beaches made of quartz grain washed down from the nearby Appalachian Mountains. Throw in the turquoise water, southern hospitality, and championship golf courses, and your travelers will never want to leave.
Clearwater Beach, Florida
If you picture white sand, odds are you are thinking of Clearwater Beach in Florida. Named by Trip Advisor as the nation’s #1 beach last year, Clearwater Beach features perfectly, stark white sand and beautiful blue water. It’s the perfect spot for a family getaway with the shallow waters and palm-lined Beach Walk Promenade to Sand Key Park.
Marco Island, Florida
It’s difficult not to fill our list with Floridian beaches, but Marco Island is must-have. Located on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, Marco Island is the largest of the Ten Thousand Islands. Marco Island is known for its pretty beaches and funky fishing village. If you are looking for a nautical vacation that is entirely one-of-a-kind, consider Marco Island.
Carmel Beach, California
It wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t give the West Coast a fair chance at our list of top white sand beaches. Luckily, Carmel Beach is the perfect spot. This iconic beach sits along California’s Central Coast, Carmel Beach is a surfer’s haven offering incomparable sunsets and extraordinary surf sets.
Kauna’oa Beach, Hawaii
Close your eyes and imagine the perfect beach of crescent white sand, calm waters, and lush vegetation. That dream is a reality on the big island of Hawaii at Kauna’oa Bay. With its abundant white sand, palm trees, and clear blue water, this crescent-shaped beach is quintessential Hawaii.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore, North Carolina
There are more than 70 miles of unspoiled, empty white sand beaches on Cape Hatteras National Seashore thanks to preservation efforts of the National Park Service. The seashore is open to everyone who loves pristine scenery, birding, surfing, fishing, shelling, and other beach-going activities. Visitors can camp near the sea, climb the Bodie Island Lighthouse, or stroll along the marshes.
