Beaches tips

The best beach vacation is… a beach vacation! But in all seriousness, if we must we choose, (drumroll please…) we might opt for the Caribbean. Honeymooners, families and jet-setters agree: between the golden beaches of Jamaica, the stylish enclaves of St. Barth's and the coral reefs of Belize, the Caribbean has it all (and then some). There is a beach vacation for everyone in this topical archipelago, whether you’re looking for adventure, wellness, island flair, or simply a fresh cocktail in the sand. Your Fora travel advisor can help you decide which island is best for your beach trip. From domestic beaches in the United States to a far-flung destination like the Maldives or Thailand, we’ve got recommendations for all types of travel. 

Before you start reciting the lyrics to a Beach Boys song (“Key Largo, Montego, baby, why don't we go…”), here’s our two cents: for a toes-in-the-water getaway sans passport, you can’t go wrong with either Florida or Hawaiʻi. Florida is a tried-and-true favorite for its year-round sun and diverse beach trip options – from the breezy shores of Miami to the powder-sand beaches of Captiva to the West. Hawaiʻi holds a special place in our hearts for its tropical beauty and ample activities beyond beachgoing (volcano climbing, anyone?). Check out a few of our advisor’s beach trip recommendations, in Florida and Hawaiʻi (links). Looking for something a little different? From east coast to west coast, our advisors can help match you with the perfect beach vacation for your style.

Imagine this: a short flight, world-class beaches, crystal-clear waters, lush landscapes and plenty of activities to entertain little ones. No, it’s not too good to be true; it’s our gorgeous neighbor, Mexico. We’re obsessed with the country for its endless supply of natural beauty, delicious flavors, and home-run beach resorts – there are literally hundreds. For a family beach trip, you go wrong with Los Cabos, with its stellar hotels (not to mention whale-watching and epic sunsets). On the East Coast, Riviera Maya boasts some of the most pristine beaches in the world, in addition to cenotes and Mayan ruins to explore. Did we mention the margaritas? 

We’re glad you asked! There are plenty of ways to book a beach vacation on a budget. First, consider traveling in the shoulder seasons. There are great deals on resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean throughout the summer and early fall, when the crowds have lessened. Another option: book a hotel that’s not on the beach, but nearby. Your Fora advisor can recommend a hotel gem that provides easy access to a beach, minus the premium beachfront price. And remember: booking with a Fora advisor unlocks budget-friendly perks like complimentary breakfasts and resort credits. A win for you and your wallet!

Simply put, we’ll take your beach vacation to the next level. Your Fora travel advisor will listen to your preferences, make recommendations, and ensure your beach trip is perfectly tailored to your taste, vacation style and budget. And when you arrive, you’ll be treated like a VIP, with room upgrades, complimentary breakfasts and spa credits. Nothing says ‘pampering’ quite like a cocktail in the sand – especially when it’s on the house.
