Beach vacations and bachelorette parties are a match made in heaven.

Whether you want to unwind or go wild, do high-octane activities or just relax with a cocktail, celebrating your friend’s impending nuptials on a spit of sand is the way to go.

Here are nine of the best beach destinations to celebrate a bride-to-be:

1. Tides Folly Beach | Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston is one of the most popular bachelorette destinations in the United States, for good reason. The city has a world-class food scene, compact downtown full of fun bars, and great beaches only minutes from all the action.

Tides Folly Beach is an oceanfront hotel in the bohemian enclave of Folly Beach where you and your besties can spend your days walking around the beach town and enjoying live music at Snapper Jacks, relaxing on the sand, or simply lounging by the pool (and, of course, the poolside bar).

If being active is more your speed, take a guided kayak or paddle-board tour of Folly Island. Tides also occasionally offers credits for Lyft rides and free cocktails, so your special celebration can continue into the bar-packed downtown for a classic bachelorette night out.

2. The Miami Beach EDITION | Miami Beach, Florida 

If you want to party in the city where the heat is on, book a stay at The Miami Beach EDITION, an Ian Schrager-designed space breathing new life into the landmark Seville Hotel.

While you can and should take advantage of all that Miami Beach has to offer (neon lights, bumping nightclubs, Cuban food to die for, and stone crabs), this extraordinary hotel has so much going on that you could get away with never leaving: a state-of-the-art spa, several restaurants developed by renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, two dreamy pools lined with cabanas, and a white-sand beach, to name just a few features.

Then there’s the motherlode. The Miami Beach EDITION is home to a sprawling entertainment complex called BASEMENT, with a skating rink, four-lane bowling alley, and night club—all below the lobby! 

3. Parrot Key Hotel & Villas | Key West, Florida 

A stay in Key West is much more than an all-night party. The tropical island is home to sandy beaches, rich history (including the former residence of Ernest Hemingway—and current home of many six-toed cats), top-notch snorkeling and kayaking, and an amazing seafood scene. 

Parrot Key taps into the best of both worlds, thanks to its waterfront property: four pools (including an adults-only pool), and grounds dotted with hammocks and cabanas. If you crave some cocktails, swim up to the poolside bar or take the free shuttle to historic downtown for bar-hopping up and down Duval Street. End your night by attending a drag show at the famous 801 Bourbon Bar.

4. Pendry | San Diego, California 

Among many other amazing attractions, San Diego is known for its beautiful weather, stunning beaches, and title as “U.S. Craft Beer Capital”—several key ingredients for the ultimate bachelorette getaway. 

Dip your toes into the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean, then go on a beer crawl, either around downtown San Diego—where you can walk or Uber to a dozen or more bars in a tight radius—or head up to Miramar, where brewery giants such as Ballast Point and boozy kombucha outfit JuneShine operate huge taprooms.

Whatever you choose, Pendry in downtown San Diego is the perfect home base—a mix of upscale boutique and laid-back Southern California cool. Not only will you be in the heart of the effortlessly cool Gaslamp District and a stone’s throw from artist community Barrio Logan, but you can also take advantage of Pendry’s spa, six on-site restaurants and bars, and rooftop pool! 

5. Hotel Coral & Marina | Ensenada, Mexico

Ensenada in northern Baja California features beautiful rocky beaches, world-class sunsets, surfing, and access to the Valle de Guadalupe—Mexico’s laid-back, affordable answer to Sonoma.

Stay at Hotel Coral & Marina, where you’ll get five-star amenities without the exorbitant price tag. Have a spa day on the grounds, maybe spend a day at the resort eating at one of two on-site restaurants and sipping cocktails by the pool, then go on a guided tour of Valle de Guadalupe’s best vineyards—all organized by the hotel, so your group doesn’t have to lift a logistical finger! 

6. Costa Baja Resort | La Paz, Mexico

If your group really wants to live the southern Baja life, La Paz offers a more relaxed pace than its infamous cousin Cabo—without sacrificing some unforgettable nightlife. 

Costa Baja Resort screams luxury north of town, where there’s no such thing as a bad view. It’s far enough away to be out of the fray (and give you a slice of private white-sand beach free of tchotchke hawkers), but close enough to the action that you can easily bar hop and dance the night away.

There’s also room for aquatic adventures. Snorkel La Paz’s famous turquoise waters with whale sharks, or kayak to your heart’s content until the sun goes down in the Sea of Cortez. Then head downtown and walk the artwork-lined malecón—a seaside promenade—before hitting the bars. 

7. Paradisus | Cancún, Mexico

A stay at Paradisus Cancún by Melia is essential to recovering from Cancún’s international party scene. This resort takes all-inclusive to the next level, with an adults-only, optional royal service, and more than 10 bars and restaurants on the grounds. 

You could spend your entire trip at this bachelorette party oasis, but it’s also a quick drive to electrifying nightlife on the main drag. Consider hiring Cuncrawl, which hosts curated bar crawls, booze cruises, and day parties, and even organizes private bachelorette nights.

Paradisus is also convenient to the interior of Quintana Roo, where you can explore Mayan ruins at Cobá and go ziplining or canoeing with your BFFs to experience firsthand just how incredibly gorgeous this region really is.

8. Secrets Wild Orchid | Montego Bay, Jamaica

Montego Bay edges out other Jamaican destinations thanks to its incredible nightlife and proximity to the airport. Opt for a tour out on the town, or, if you decide to stay at Secrets Wild Orchid, you don’t need to leave the resort to find the party.

Situated on a one-mile stretch of private beach,this luxury resort hosts theme parties and live entertainment, boasts 24/7 access to food and drinks (including two swim-up bars and a bar at their spa), and even has a gaming lounge where guests can pretend they’re in Las Vegas.It also permits guests to enjoy its sister property, St. James, for a little change of scenery.

9. Gente del Mar Resort | Cartagena, Colombia

Actual paradise is just a quick flight (three hours direct from Miami, five from New York) away. 

Gente del Mar is in the Rosario Islands, a 40-minute boat ride south of Cartagena. This hotel perfects the indoor-outdoor living so essential to fully enjoying Caribbean life. Its bar and luxury spa don’t hurt, either. Gente de Mar’s location at the edge of a federally protected natural park grants peace and quiet, whereas most visitors to the Rosarios are packed onto public beaches like sardines. 

The hotel also takes care of transportation logistics, so your group doesn’t have to worry about getting to and from the mainland. And you’ll want to explore Cartagena, a historic  city with a walkable historic center, cobblestone streets lined with hibiscus and bougainvillea, and plenty of beautiful beaches!
