Best Beaches for Nightlife

Beach vacations are perfect for having as much fun as humanly possible. The best way to go about it is to find a vacation rental home in the city you want to visit. This way, you can have as much space as you need, make breakfast in your own full-sized kitchen when you wake up and then go spend the day swimming and sunning yourself. Then, later in the evening when the bars and cafes on the beach have closed, you can take the party back to your rental home and not have to worry about how much noise you’re making, as you would in a hotel.

beaches for nightlifeThe difficult decision you need to make is where to go. There are many beaches you can go to, but not all of them offer a good time after sundown. To help you on your nocturnal quest, we've compiled a list of the best beaches for nightlife.

Venice Beach, California

Venice is famous for its oddball culture and the bars and nightclubs that line its equally famous boardwalk are full of surfers, struggling unknown Hollywood actors, beach bums, daytime bikini models and all kinds of interesting only-in-California people. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a movie star or two.

Miami Beach, Florida

Any list of the best beaches for nightlife must include Miami. Miami is known for its vibrant nightlife, unusual ethnic diversity and its infusion of Latin culture and dance music. It is also one of the most tolerant, gay-friendly cities in America, a tradition that has existed since the late 1980s. That accepting, open attitude crosses over to its club scene, and with a city so full of young people, makes for exciting nightlife.

Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

The best beaches for nightlife aren’t only to be found in the United States, Australia’s beaches are world-famous for their beauty and for sand as soft as talcum powder. Australians who live in beach communities tend to have a well-developed sense of fun; the Queensland district , known as Surfer’s Paradise, even employs bikini-clad meter maids, so take your time getting back to your car. And of course it goes without saying that the nightlife in such a place is unbeatable.


Thailand depends heavily on Western tourism to keep its economy moving, which means that the Thai people go out of their way to fill their country with some of the best beach nightlife. Thai cuisine has become very popular in the U.S. over the past decade or so, and if you’re a fan, just imagine how much better it is when you go to the source. The city of Bangkok is world famous for its hedonistic nightlife. Less famous, but still well-known, is the island of Phuket. Phuket’s Patong Beach is full of exciting restaurants, bars and nightclubs.


Barbados is a Caribbean island paradise. Its beaches are white and powdery, the water is an inviting shade of blue and its nightlife is no less exciting. About five kilometers southeast of Bridgetown (the capitol city) is Saint Lawrence Gap , a one-and-a-half kilometer strip of bars, dance clubs, restaurants and shops that stretch along the beachfront.
