Summer's not over... yet. There is still plenty of time left this season to slather on some SPF, grab a towel, and catch a few hours of sun-soaked beach time. But the question is: Where?

Perhaps you're in need of a city escape, where it's just you, the gently crashing waves, and a particluarly engrossing novel. Or, maybe you're in the mood to mingle with tanned and toned locals who will toss you a volleyball with one hand and an icy-cold beer with another.  Whether you plan on surfing till sunset or chilling on the sand with a second mai tai, there's something for everyone out there.
