<p>Head just over the bridge from downtown San Diego to find the nearly two-mile stretch of <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/california/san-diego/review-423369.html">Coronado Central Beach</a>. Enjoy near-perfect weather, white sand beaches, and warm waters. Kids will love building castles from sand that glistens year-round thanks to the glittery mineral, mica, which is mixed in with the sand. The gentle surf makes it optimal for skim boarding and swimming. Walk along the beach to take in majestic mansions, as well as the swanky <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/california/san-diego/review-45822.html">Hotel del Coronado</a>, which inspired Walt Disney World's Grand Floridian. Before you leave, make time for an ice cream cone at the MooTime Creamery. </p> <br> <p><strong>Insider Tip</strong>: The many fire pits along the beach are perfect for making s'mores, so don't forget your chocolate bars, 'mallows, and grahams.</p>

    Where is Hawaii?

    Thanks for the note! We actually just double checked and, in fact, found that it is from Henderson Beach State Park! Perhaps a different view than you’ve seen?

    The picture of Henderson State Park in Destin, Florida, is not a picture of Henderson State Park. Not sure what beach this is, but it is certainly not in Destin.
