Ka’anapali Beach, HI

best beachesKa’anapali is a three-mile stretch of beach that has been touted as one of the best beaches on Maui, and even in America. Long ago, these sands and lush gardens were enjoyed by Hawaiian kings and queens who sought a relaxing, rejuvenating retreat. The land itself was once comprised of green sugar cane and taro, grown with the help of the Maui sun and a freshwater spring. This magical spot is steeped in culture, from when it was used as a training ground for Hawaiian warriors in ancient times, to the romantic days of “Old Hawaii” in the ’30s and ’40s, to the present.

Pensacola Beach, FL

best beachesPensacola Beach is a Florida resort community on the Gulf Coast barrier island of Santa Rosa. White-sand beaches include Opal Beach, part of Gulf Islands National Seashore. Pensacola Beach Boardwalk has shops, eateries, and, nearby, the Pensacola Beach Pier stretches into the Gulf of Mexico. Both are on the Pensacola Beach Eco-Trail, which spotlights local wildlife such as sea turtles. West is the 1834 Fort Pickens.

Some may like hiking through the mountains and forests, others may like a lake with a cabin. I love the beach and just thinking about it conjures up the smell of my sunscreen. If you want to, join me on the beautiful beaches found around America!
