The Songs to Add to Your Beach Day Playlist

November 06, 2020

The beach is our happy place. Whether we're spending a weekend in swoon-worthy beach towns, visiting one of the most unique beaches in the state for a day, or camping overnight by the sea, it's hard to beat the feeling you get when relaxing at California's beaches. Life is different at the beach; the ocean kisses the shoreline, the waves dance in synchronization with the waters, and the warm grains of sand hug your feet.

Offering the best escape anyone can have, the Golden State’s beaches are full of surprises; all that’s left is the perfect feel-good California playlist to brighten up your day. While the ocean breeze puts the mind at ease, a beach day playlist can bring comfort to the soul. So, for your next California beach trip, spend a few hours in bliss while jamming to your beach day playlist. (Don't forget to crank up the ultimate road trip playlist on your way there.)
