While we all love a good seaside snap, the question is: which beaches are best for striking a pose with your Gilly’s Lager?
Having a cold one by your side is truly one of the best ways to enjoy the sun and surf. Even better when you can turn it into a picture-perfect moment.
It’s practically what summer was made for.
If you’re in need of some much-needed taking-it-easy time, you’re in luck because California boasts some awesome beach scenes where you can legitimately kick back a few. Where stretches of sand, sunny boardwalks, clear water, and rolling waves create epic backgrounds for beer-in-hand photoshoots.
We’ve rounded up the best beaches in California for your next day-drinking getaway. Check out our list below:
Located on the Central Coast, Carmel Beach is a sweeping crescent framed by powdery white sand, rocky bluffs and majestic cypress trees. In between adventures such as surfing, volleyball, and frisbee throwing, you can soak up the good weather on your towel or chair with a Gilly’s in hand (drinking is allowed until 10pm!) Want some more fun things to do? How about taking your dog with you for some off-leash exploring or building a beach bonfire?
What could be more Malibuan than a secluded patch of beach surrounded by sandstone cliffs and millionaire mansions? The scenery of Paradise Cove has even been the star of many beach scenes in Hollywood movies. Bring a cooler full of beer for sipping after splashing in the jewel-toned water or taking a barefooted stroll in the powdery-soft sands.
At the western end of Point Reyes is a little slice of paradise called Kehoe Beach. If you’re in the mood for a less-crowded seaside escape, Kehoe should hit the spot. Once you make it across the 0.6-mile trail, you’ll be greeted by rocky bluffs, wild surf, and sand dunes. Now imagine yourself surrounded by salt-swashed scenery with a tasty brew in hand.
Like Paradise Cove, Mother Nature has blessed Descanso Beach with a crystal clear surf and sparkling white sand. We wouldn’t mind the small entrance fee because this pristine little haven is one of the one of the last places in Southern California where you can legally have a drink in your hand while on the beach. Chill out with your Gilly’s on Descanso Beach’s premium relaxation chairs and soak up the island-resort vibes.
So, grab a Gilly’s Lager, take your pick of these incredible beach destinations, and make a day of it. Every location on this list guarantees insta-worthy pics to show off to your followers.
