Best Beaches San Jose, CA Area for Families?

Jump to last reply

We plan on visiting family in San Jose possibly this summer. We have two toddlers, ages 5 1/2 and 4. I would appreciate any suggestions for nice beaches in the area, while we are in San Jose.

My husband grew up going to the beach in Santa Cruz. But I get the impression that it can get crowded ---both on the beach and the boardwalk.

We would be more interested in staying in a quiet beach area as far as enjoying the beach itself. We don't mind driving to Santa Cruz then for the boardwalk maybe early evening. But as far as the beach itself, we prefer much more quaint, quieter places.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. If anyone is familiar with the East Coast, to give you an idea, when we stay at the beaches in Deleware, we prefer the quiet of Bethany Beach, and then driving to Rehoboth for the boardwalk. We don't even bother with Ocean City, MD, if that helps.

Also, if there are private beaches that anyone knows of, we don't mind paying a little more and being able to access a private beach.

Thanks very much!
