Best swimming beaches

This may not be the best place for this general question, but hopefully someone can help. We usually vacation in the Caribbean or Mexico and love the beaches. I know the water isn't warm in California, but wondered if there is anywhere along the coast that has beaches that are swimmable? We would be traveling next July. Also would appreciate suggestons of places to stay for a day or two between San Francisco and LA. Thank you!

Without a wetsuit, the water around Carmel is too cold for swimming for normal people. You really need to get as far south as LA County.
