Best affordable beach resortsShare

â€śGet me a stretch of sand and a hammock and Iâ€™m happy,â€ť says Kirsty Hathaway of U.K.-based BeachTomato.com, a fashion and travel site focused on beach vacations. â€śAwaking to the sound of rumbling waves, completely immersed in nature and wildlife. This, for me, is the epitome of true escapism.â€ť
Escapism looks a little different for everyone, but we can all agree that a reasonable price tag spells relaxation almost as much as a hammock and a cold one. So weâ€™ve rounded up our favorite affordable beach resorts worldwide, each checking in between $99 and $210 per night.
After all, a beach vacation isnâ€™t rocket science. The three key ingredients are simple: sun, sand, surf. Itâ€™s not all about the tanning butlers or 12-course molecular gastronomy tasting menus or the flat-screen pool-cabana entertainment systems. And it certainly isnâ€™t about watching your bank account wash out to sea.
Luxe-mod Peruvian surf breaks? Nouveau preppy Kennebunkport, ME? Avant architecture in Norway? Yup, weâ€™ve got those too. So go ahead and dive in. The forecast is sunny for this choose-your-own-resort adventure.
B Ocean, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Free iPad rentals, white-on-white leather furnishings, cute naming conventions (B Active gym, B Nourished restaurant)â€”sound familiar? If it werenâ€™t for the rates, you could mistake this hotel for a pricer single-letter chain (cough, W, cough). But we love how the 240-room B Ocean does affordable without nickel-and-diming guests. Wi-Fi is free, ocean views are standard, and spa services are a bargain.
Cost: From $189.
