I hope you can help - I'm looking at a 3 week trip to California next August and I'm keen to spend 2 weeks by the beach. I thought San Diego would be the place, but a number of people have suggested that it's not actually that hot at the beach in August. We have just had a great time at siesta key in Florida & whilst I appreciate it's a different heat in ca, is it still hot enough for days on the beach & watching the sunset? Is Dana point likely to be warmer than San Diego? I've looked at wunderground for history & that looks ok, but I'd be keen to know what summer really feels like there? It also seems a good place to get an ocean front condo with a pool as well? Any recommendations?
