...because not all beaches are made the same.

Whether or not it’s currently summer where you are, there are plenty of places in other parts of the world where you can slather on some SPF, grab a towel, and catch a few hours of sun-soaked beach time. 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.
