For many travelers, the beach is a core component of their vacation. So much so, that many people design their trips around the central idea of relaxing at the beach, choosing their hotel and trip dates to cater specifically to this purpose. Unfortunately, because of such a high demand, many beach trips are expensive. Here are some of the few affordable beach vacations around the world that you can enjoy for a reasonable price.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

A United States territory, Puerto Rico is fairly close to the mainland, resulting in affordable flights and no need for a passport to enter. This Caribbean island is filled with exquisite architecture as well as several free attractions to visit, including the Spanish Forts and of course, the beaches. Authentic local cuisines such as bacalaitos and mofongo also prove to be cheaper than other destinations.

Crete, Greece

Home to Athens and tons of islands, Greece can be expensive depending on where you go, particularly on islands such as Mykonos and Santorini. Fortunately, the island of Crete proves more affordable. With hiking, ancient ruins, and plenty of good food and wine, you won’t miss out on anything in this island paradise.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

You may be surprised to learn that if you’re looking for an affordable beach trip, you can find one without needing to travel abroad to a cheaper country. Myrtle Beach offers a sprawling beach of over 60 miles, with plenty of festivals and other events that you can attend to make your trip all the more memorable.
