The iland of Madeira Portugal has one the best beaches you will ever see, The water runs side by side. On on side it is blue and other is green. Yet they are side by side.

I've enjoyed some of the Florida Gulf Coast beaches very much, like Captiva Island with all the shells to look for, and the clear warm water, but my favorites are in Baja California on the Sea of Cortez. Never crowded, and many have great white sand and no surf, so they're fine for swimming. Two of our true favorites are Coyote Cove, where you can camp on the sand, and El Requeson, with its sand beach connecting to an offshore island. It gives you two beaches, one on each side of the connection, both being good for snorkeling or just lolling in the warm clear water, watching the fish swim by. It's very safe for families with small children, too. There's a nice small hotel at a cove between these two spots, with a good friendly restaurant next door. (Oops, I ought to keep that a secret so it doesn't get too popular!!)
