4 Beach Destinations To Spend A Summer Vacation

4 Beach Destinations To Spend A Summer Vacation

Oahu, HI

The island of Oahu is one of the most iconic beach destinations. Waikiki Beach has been the setting for several movies and is one of the top visited beaches. There are several resorts and vacation homes with their backyard as Waikiki Beach. For a more secluded atmosphere, stay on the North Shore. This is where yearly surf competitions are held on the famous Pipeline Beach. Grab a chair and relax with a mai tai as you watch the surfers play in the ocean.

Mustang Island, TX

Mustang Island is a lesser known beach destination, but still oh-so fun. Located on Texas’s Gulf Coast, the 18-mile island is close to both Padre Island and Corpus Christi. Port Aransas beach is more secluded while the Padre Island National Seashore is where the college kids flock to for spring and summer breaks. While sunbathing and swimming in the ocean are popular, bird watching the native Texas birds is a huge attraction at Mustang Island State Park beach. If you never want to leave the beach, check out some Port Aransas beach house rentals for your vacation.

Myrtle Beach, SC

Myrtle Beach is an iconic spring break destination and is even warmer in the summers. It’s part of the Grand Strand, a 60-mile strip of beaches on South Carolina’s Northeast coast. If you love meeting new people, Myrtle Beach is the place to do it. Along with plenty of opportunities to swim and sunbathe, there are also fun boardwalks that have arcades, restaurants, and one of the country’s tallest Ferris Wheels.

Santa Barbara, CA

Santa Barbara has it all: Beach, mountain views, Spanish style buildings, and lots of fabulous restaurants and shops. Surfing is big in Santa Barbara, so you’ll enjoy the big waves or just sunbathing on the beach and watching the surfers do their thing. You can also try your hand at sailing, kayaking, or biking the boardwalk to one of Santa Barbara’s delicious seafood restaurants. You’ll want to stay awhile, so make sure to book a Santa Barbara Inn close to the beach.
