Active + Adventure

Totally Active Beaches

by Sarah Tuff

For one person, perfection is eight hours on the beach, lolling in the sun, with nothing more strenuous to do than get through the latest Oprah's Book Club selection. To the next person, that's 28,800 seconds of unmitigated hell—boring, wasteful hours better spent exercising or adventuring. Usually, these two people are married to each other. Fear not: Divorce is not the (only) answer. We've uncovered 11 great beach locations, each with a pulse-quickening activity near at hand—whether it's sea kayaking, hiking, or hitting golf balls. So whether you're happier bodysurfing or chaise lounging, you'll both be having fun in the sun.
