When I lived in Venice CA I swam year around.. Wore an ordinary speedo and a latex cap. It was cold, but when it's cold no jelly fish to sting you. I only missed during storms, and few to none of these in September-IMO one of the best beach-going months.

People who don't like September are not going to like June, July or August either, unless there is an el niņo going on. Ha

Absolutely right.

For one thing, your body can adjust to cold water over time (a week or so).

Another point is that those who swim or surf in water around 60 degrees (plus or minus a few) will usually wear at least a thin "shorty" wetsuit and a cap. Doing so make a huge difference.

When I lived in Monterey, the water tended to be fairly cold, but a 5-10 minute swim was always enjoyable for me. Longer than that would probably be unpleasant, but if you're just on vacation you probably aren't interested in extended swims.

Lots of cool places, I have done a cursory search and will have to get more detailed when I have some more time, but it seems to fill up fast (some of the VRBO's that I checked out). I am thinking the best time will be within the first two weeks of August, daughter in law is a grade school educator and classes usually start the end of August.

I checked out crystal pier, that place looks awesome, maybe not the best for this group but something for just DW and I

Laguna Beach and Encinitas Beach are both iconic Southern Ca beaches
If you want to go really upscale then consider La Jolla and Del Mar
