The Best Beaches When asked to pick our favorite beach, we often say, “For what?” Different beaches are best for different things. You don’t want to try going nude at State Beach, and you shouldn’t head to East Beach if it’s people watching you like. We think the Inkwell is the best for swimming laps (the jetties are like the ends of a pool); for the best body surfing, we head to the south shore.
