Nearest Beaches

I suspect this question has been asked previously so please pardon me asking it again. My family and I are traveling from Santa Fe to the Perennial Vacation Club at Imperial Lakes for a week in late July. Although we recgonize that we won't be near the ocean, can anyone recommend a nice beach for a one day excursion that we could drive to? Since we rarely get to the ocean being from NM, our goal is to spend one day relaxing on a beach knowing we will have to drive a distance to get there. Thanks so much. Paul

Clearwater is your closest beach. Its about 1 hours drive. Use www.mapquest.com to see your route, gives mileage and drive times too.

Thanks so much, I appreciate your reply. Is there any part or area of Clearwater that are more family oriented or that you recommend? Thanks again.

Its been a while since I have stayed there. Try posting on their forum, you should get lots of info there. The west coast beaches are really nice. It's worth the trip. I would also try to get there early and maybe go midweek as parking lots fill up quickly on weekends.
