We love winter because it means endless holiday music, layers on layers of scarves, and PSLs (yes, we had to say it.)
But we’d definitely be lying if we said we didn’t miss the sea, sun, and sand…and those long summer days spent at the beach. So we searched up the best holiday getaways for you to travel to if you can’t stand the cold weather. Because it doesn’t hurt to spend the holidays by the beach, right?
