Beach Vacations - the Almost Perfect Singles Vacation
Beach vacations are a great way to unwind from the monotony of life. And in the summertime, everyone would love to hit the beach. The beach is ready-made for fun and relaxation, and the perfect choice for singles to choose for their vacation destination.
You can find just about anything that you want to do for fun at the beach. The trick is finding the best place to go. All around the world, there are hundreds of places that you can choose for your beach holiday. You can choose from beaches in the United States or go overseas to have fun at the tropical beaches where you can enjoy warm weather all year round with plenty of sunshine and warmth.
In the United States, popular beach destinations are North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, California, Virginia, Oregon, Alabama and other points along the coasts.
Cocoa Beach in Florida for example, offers a lot of things to do and see. Besides the fun in the sun, you can go deep sea fishing or parasailing or just take a river tour and get up close and personal with the awesome wildlife. You can enjoy dinner at one of the many dining spots on the beach and enjoy the nightlife on the beach that ranges from cool jazz clubs to beach side cafes.
The Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is an excellent location for a beach vacation. It offers endless stretches of powdery white sand and the crystal blue Atlantic Ocean. If you are a golf lover, this is an almost perfect place because it offers about 80 pro courses. And the night is alive with many night clubs and a range of entertainment.
Other Beach Vacation Destinations
Many singles are looking to vacation a little further from home in order to meet some new people, perhaps in a new culture. In that case, take a look at the resort options in destinations outside the U.S.
Popular destinations for beach vacations are in Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe. Oftentimes, these resorts offer more amenities than a hotel. There are usually parties and other activities at night that cater to singles at an upscale resort.
The Caribbean Islands including the Bahamas, Jamaica, Barbados, the Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Anguilla are among the best destinations for beach vacations. The Caribbean Islands offer splendid beaches, crystal clear water, and warm weather and activities such as diving, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, and fishing.
If you want to go further, Thailand has several beautiful beaches. Some of the best beaches in Thailand are at Phi Phi Island, Phuket and Khao Lak in Phang Nga. The scuba diving is first class, the views are breathtaking and the water warm and inviting.
Beach Vacations - Rentals and Accommodations
Where you stay is almost as important as what you do. There are many hotel chains on beaches all over the world. A hotel is a good idea if you want a quick, simple solution to a little getaway destination. If you are familiar with the area where you are vacationing, you will no doubt be familiar with the hotel chain.
If you're vacationing alone you can often cut the cost of the room by getting the smallest room available. If you plan on spending most of your time on the sand anyway, you are just looking for a place to accommodate your basic needs. There may be happy hours in the hotel bar that will cut the cost even further as well as give the single person a place to mingle with other singles.
You can choose a resort that is primarily rented by singles. If you choose a "singles resort" you increase your social agenda with beach parties, dances, music, and other activities, planned and unplanned. You can relax on beautiful secluded beaches or participate in water sports to get to know the other singles better. The fun never has to end when you're meeting more new singles every day.
If you are a single woman who is a little more risqué, you might want to look into resorts like Sandals or Hedonism. They offer clothing optional beaches, fun excursions, crazy parties and an atmosphere filled with playful mischief. You may be looking for some memorable days and nights while you're vacationing, but no more than that.
Beach Vacation Tips
It is better to choose a spot that aren't catered for family or where there is plenty of romance. Decide on where you are going and research your destination spot.
You are not the only ones who love the beach. If you want to have a beach vacation alone or with a group of single friends, avoid the family beach areas. These family resorts will have a lot of kids in the middle of summer when they are out of school. If you are vacationing at a resort that is not singles only, choose the school year to vacation.
A singles beach vacation doesn't mean you have to be alone. Whether you choose a hotel or resort, decide beforehand what sort of fun you want to have. Is it one that is calm or crazy, single or paired, naughty or nice? Then find the vacation destination that suits you best.
