Hi everyone. My name is Sandy and
I’m a YouTuber based out of Los Angeles. I create videos around fashion and beauty.
I also create lifestyle vlogs, but this week I’m actually taking over
the EF channel as their guest vlogger. I’ve been living in L.A. for about 2 and a half years now and one of my favorite things about
living down here is the beaches. So, I want to take you along with me as I explore and discover new beaches around the EF school
that you can go visit, too. Let’s get going! First we’re heading to Sunset Beach,
which is actually tucked away behind a residential area, so it’s a
bit more private and secluded. There are small pathways between
houses that lead out to the beach and then you’ll find that there’s
lots of room to run around. There are even some volleyball
nets if you like to play. The best part is that it’s not too crowded,
so it’s a great beach for just relaxing. You can bring a book to read, a journal,
work you might need to catch up on … I like to dip my feet in the water, watch the waves
and ships, and just get lost in my thoughts. We’re going further down the coast
now to our next destination. There are, honestly, so many beaches, so if you’re not picky, you could really pull
over anywhere and find your beach spot. For now, I want to take you
to Huntington Beach Pier, for those of you who are social butterflies
and want more action and life around you. This is a great beach if you want to
meet new people and make new friends. There is so much you can do here. The pier is right across from a shopping center,
so you can go check out the stores. You can also rent a bike, play volleyball,
go fishing on the pier, surf … Huntington Beach is known as Surf City, U.S.A. I love walking down the pier
and going out over the water. I think it’s fun to look down
and out into the ocean. It reminds me of how small I really
am in the grand scheme of things. This beach is about 20 minutes by car
from the EF campus in Costa Mesa, so you can easily take an
Uber or taxi to get here. Public transportation is also available,
but it will take a bit longer. Next, we’re headed off to Corona Del Mar.
This place is a beach and park combined. It’s about 15 minutes away from the campus by car, but if you don’t have a car, you can easily
take a taxi or public transportation. My favorite part about the beach is the jetty. I love walking down the pathway
and being so close to the water. You just have to be a little bit careful during
high tide and when the waves are strong. There are lifeguards around,
but again, just be careful. I also love that there’s this large
rock structure you can climb on. I think it’s really fun to do that. There are also fire pits available, so it’s a
great place for bonfires and barbecues. There’s also a large cliff area where you can
climb and get a better view of the surroundings. It’s also a great spot for photos. For the last stop, we’re heading
to Crystal Cove State Park. This place is huge.
It’s tucked away in the mountains and there are some beautiful hiking trails across
the park, so lots of sight seeing can be done here. It’s a bit easier to navigate and get
around to all the spots with a car, so keep that in mind if you want to visit. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can go
through this tunnel to get to the beach, but they also have a shuttle you
can take from the main parking lot. I love this beach for its little tide pools and
rocks where you can observe little sea creatures. This beach is a good in-between
if you want something private, but still want to be close to civilisation. There are restaurants on the shore, but if you walk
further down, you can get some more privacy. One of the park rangers also told me this
is one of the best places to watch the sunset. So, this is Crystal Cove.
It’s the last stop of the day. I’m just going to chill out
here and watch the sunset. I just want to thank EF for allowing
me to guest vlog on their channel. I had so much fun visiting and
exploring all these beaches today. I hope you had fun, too, and got some ideas of
some things to do while you’re here. Until next time. Bye!
