Dreaming of the sun, sand, and the soothing sound of waves? A beach vacation doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are three affordable options to consider. 

Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida

Located between Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea has a laid-back atmosphere with a touch of old Florida charm. This coastal gem still has the famous pristine Florida beaches, a vibrant coral reef for snorkeling, and a charming downtown area with boutiques and restaurants but will cost you less than a trip to Miami. 

Tybee Island, Georgia

Tybee Island is a great spot on Georgia’s coast. Known for its picturesque lighthouse and sandy beaches. In addition to enjoying the water, you can explore the island’s history at Fort Pulaski National Monument. There are great cozy Airbnbs in the area you can rent for your whole family. 

Sayulita, Mexico

For an affordable international escape, consider Sayulita on Mexico’s Pacific coast. This surf town is a blend of bohemian charm, golden beaches, and a lively atmosphere. Embrace the laid-back vibe, enjoy fresh fish tacos, or catch some waves on the beach. Sayulita also has many budget-friendly accommodations, from hostels to guesthouses, making it the perfect destination for a wallet-friendly beach trip.
