There’s No Finer Place Than This Underrated Beach In Alaska

The great state of Alaska has 33,904 miles of shoreline, but most of that is rough, rocky coast that isn’t very hospitable for picnicking. True beaches are few and far between, and they are almost exclusively coarse black sand full of rocks. But the Gulf of Alaska boasts a rare treat: a remote sandy beach. Granted, the sand is not as white as a Hawaiian postcard, nor are the breezes tropically warm, but Cannon Beach in Yakutat has the beach with the finest sand in Alaska. Explore this incredible beach that features historical sites, Alaskan wildlife, stunning views, and even surfing!
