Surrounding the beach are various hiking trails and official campsites in thick dense forests.

Enderts Beach, California

Enderts Beach is tucked away in Redwood National Park. The beach provides beach-goers with 37 miles of coastline surrounded by 350-foot evergreen trees. Enderts is not the prettiest beach, but much like Second Beach in Washington, it provides individuals with captivating ocean-front views from idyllic, lush forests.

Awahua Beach, Hawaii

Awahua Beach is beautiful as it is eerie. The isolated beach was once a leper colony, where those suffering from leprosy were forcibly removed from civilization. Today, the beach remains less developed than other parts of the island chain. You can only reach the coastline via hiking trails through the island’s various cliffs and valleys. Definitely take a minute to enjoy the area’s breathtaking views.

Orange Beach, Alabama

Orange Beach’s white sandy shores and warm gulf waters provide a great destination to visit if you’re along the southern coast.

Orange offers an array of entertainment and activities for families including concerts, cinemas, festivals, and even the Southeast’s largest Ferris Wheel!
