Even New England is a pretty warm place to take a dip in June. Some of the best beach vacations in June are actually in places you might not initially think would be warm. The great thing about summer is that it turns even temperate places into great beach experiences. While this group of beach locations is still mostly focused on traditionally warm places, people based in the United States will still find some great places that are reasonably easy to get to.

Chincoteague Island, VirginiaChincoteague Island vacation property #3830176

strong>Bahia Honda Key State Park Beach is an incredible place for relaxation. Since it's protected, nobody builds here. Leave your rental with your beach chair and wade out about a hundred feet to a sandbar, where you can sit and relax like never before. The water temperature is just about perfect, too, if you feel like taking a dip.
Cape CodCape Cod vacation property #122422
Nauset Town Beach is a great place to go for a barbecue on the beach, some great fishing and a cold beer at the Land Ho! The area is protected from being insanely developed because it's part of the Cape Cod National Seashore, so you can still take in some great unspoiled beauty.
Grand CaymanGrand Cayman vacation property #620847vb
Seven Mile Beach is a great place for diving and partying. But sometimes that gets a little old, so June's Rogest Art Down Under Week adds art events to the mix. Leave your rental to attend a wine and cheese opening or throw your brush in the ring and enter an art contest or two.

Capri, ItalyCapri vacation property #3712292
Italy is a bit different than most of the places on this list. The brightly colored fishing boats more than make up for the slightly gray sand, and the relaxed culture of the area makes the place very soothing.
