We are nearing the end of winter, which means you are inevitably going to come out of hiding to put those bathing suits on. I love this time of year. The sun, music, food, drinks, and friendships are always the main focus of spring and summer. With spring coming up, what are you doing for spring break? Are you looking for the traditional spring break spent beaching? If so, here are the best beach locations for spring break. You will not be disappointed.
If you are looking for the perfect Instagram shot featuring wild pigs, the Bahamas is your spring break destination. There is so much to do here. Local eating, shopping, and exploring will take plenty of your time. I suggest checking out the Queen’s Staircase. You can snorkel over beautiful reefs, but watch out for sharks. The sunbathing on white sand beaches isn’t too bad either! And of course, check out Atlantis while you are there. It features such a great aquarium and water slides. You might even run into Mary Kate and Ashley- okay, maybe not. The 90’s kid in me can dream though.
Cabo San Lucas
If you are looking for all-inclusive resorts and great nightlife, Cabo is for you. Even if you are a daytime adventurer, Cabo is a great destination. You can walk on Lover’s Beach, snorkel and scuba dive amongst the fishes, and even kayak through caves. If it is nightlife you are looking for, Cabo Wabo Cantina, Giggling Marlin, The Office, El Squid Roe, Nowhere Bar, and others will excite you. Spend your days on the beach and your nights dancing away.
Puerto Vallarta features some amazing beaches and daytime cruises. Be sure to book a sailboat tour or whale watching cruise on this spring break trip. The El Malecon boardwalk is definitely worth checking out. It is along the sandy beaches of Puerto Vallarta. This is such a beautiful, warm, and perfect spring break destination because it too features the inclusive resorts, and nightlife, but less college kids as compared to Cabo, if that isn’t quite your thing.
Miami Beach and South Beach are famous for their spring break parties! If you are looking for a big party, Miami be the perfect spot for you an all your friends. This is where you will find an abundance of college kids. South Beach features all the popular nightclubs during this time of the year and daytime beach parties. Here you will find music, drinks, games, and more. Miami even has a clothing optional beach called Haulover Beach. Proceed with caution!
If you are more of a West Coast kind of person, Santa Monica will be the spring break beach for you. It is over three miles of soft sand and features a pier with a Ferris wheel, shops, and great beach food. The Santa Monica beach is an iconic California beach.
These are five of the most recommended spring break beaches. Now go get started planning the spring break of your dreams. Remember to find the perfect bathing suit and pack plenty of water!
