Options For A Beach Front Vacation

by Jordan Marshall

Beaches offer lots of fun for vacationers, such as swimming, sunbathing, food options, entertainment, etc. That's why they're one of the most popular vacation destinations. If you decide to vacation in a beach town and want to stay on the beach, you'll have many options.

Here are some of the most common beachfront accommodation options for vacationers:


Most beach towns have many beachfront hotels for you to stay at, and they offer some advantages over other options. Hotels are easy to book, have many different room options, provide many amenities, etc. A beachfront hotel is a great option if you want to stay somewhere with everything you need in one location while being close to the beach. 


Motels have most of the benefits of hotels but are usually less expensive and offer more basic accommodation options. If you'd like to stay by the beach while saving money, a motel is a great choice. Luckily, most beach towns will have a few motels available in addition to hotels, so you should have no trouble finding one as long as you book in advance. 


Some people prefer to camp on vacation, and many beach towns have beachfront campgrounds. When you stay at a campground, you can bring your own trailer, rent one, or camp in a tent. Campgrounds usually have fun and convenient amenities like parks, pools, public restrooms, a general store, laundry facilities, etc. 

Condo Rentals

Many beach towns have condo communities on the beach, and you can usually rent a unit for your vacation. Since people typically live in condos year-round, they're more set up for comfortable and convenient living than hotels and motels. You'll find that condo vacation rentals are spacious, have private sleeping areas, and usually have full kitchens. 

Cottage Rentals

Another choice vacationers have when they want to stay somewhere on the beach is cottages. Cottages are small houses that are available for vacationers to rent. They're more private than hotels and more affordable than house rentals, so they're a good choice if you want your own space while saving some money.

House Rentals

Many people own beachfront homes, so if you're going on vacation to a beach town, you could see if any homes are available to rent. When you rent a beachfront house, you have everything you need to live comfortably, with lots of privacy and direct access to the beach. Some beachfront homes even have access to a private section of the beach.
