Summer has arrived and you’re looking for the hottest beaches (literally and figuratively) in California. Feel the heat in Southern California where 300 miles of coastline between San Diego and Santa Barbara County offers the warmest ocean temperatures. Compare this: San Diego’s ocean temperature in July is 70 degrees while in Trinidad (Northern California) it is 53 degrees. That’s quite a difference! If you head out this weekend, the water temperature at San Diego beaches is around 66 degrees F, 64-65 at L.A. beaches, 52.7 degrees in Santa Barbara and 52 degrees in Santa Cruz.
By temperature alone, the hottest beaches in California are located between San Diego and Malibu. And while tourists actually complain that California’s beaches are too cold compared to Florida, what Californians lose in temps they make up for in amenities. West Coast beaches are not known for mosquitoes, alligators and other creatures the Florida coast has. Who needs that?
