Are you looking for a destination with a string of beach bars that are packed until the wee hours? A family-oriented resort where you won't have to keep a constant eye on the kids? A remote region where you can spend your time kayaking along the shore? While there are locations that can provide all of the above, prioritizing your favorite activities will help you choose the best beach vacation.

Budget-wise, there are lots of things to consider. For a relaxing retreat with friends, renting a beach house might be the way to go. For more of a party scene, a suite on the strip with access to a rooftop pool could be the ticket. Explore your options and remember to factor in such extras as beach access fees, rental car costs, equipment rentals, and cover charges at clubs.

If you're traveling with children, consider family-friendly beach resorts. Many hotels offer activities that keep kids of all ages happily occupied – we've seen everything from environmentalist programs to movie nights. Couples on a romantic getaway might want to seek out an adults-only resort for a more serene atmosphere.

Wherever you end up, Fodor's has a guide to help you discover the best places to eat, stay, and explore during your beach vacation.
