Giving away a week at the MGK Beach House has Andre Gardner reflecting on his favorite beach spots near and far. Grab your snorkle find out where Andre finds he beachy zen.
It's always more laid back at the shore, and you're lulled into a trance by the sounds of the waves crashing onto the beach. There's nothing like it. We're lucky we all have such a relatively short trip to our little slice pf paradise, each beach having its own distinct character. When we go down to Jersey, it's usually Avalon, Cape May or O.C. for us, though my first memory, captured on 8mm film by my Dad, is of putting sand in my bucket right on the Atlantic City beach just a few steps from the Boardwalk.
When I want to reach the next level of chill, I head down to the Cayman Islands at Seven Mile Beach, perhaps my favorite. The snorkeling out toward Stingray City is spectacular. Or we like to hit St. Croix for a low key time and maybe a snorkeling excursion out to Buck Island.
