Today we are going to be breaking down some of the best beaches in America to crack a cold one(s) on. With the summer heat showing no signs of slowing down any time soon this summer, we don’t plan on slowing down our drinking either. There are many things that just go together harmoniously in life. For example, you have Batman and Robin, movies and buttery popcorn, and, of course, the Kardashians and unearned attention.

Let us not forget one of the greatest pairings of all time, booze and the wonder, mystical, mysterious beach.

Some say time is the best medicine, others might say antibiotics, I say no matter what is wrong with you, getting a little sun and sipping on a alcoholic beverage with your toes in the sand certainly can’t hurt. There’s no reason why we shouldn’t live our lives like it is one long Corona giphy-1 ad. Can you count how many Snapchat’s you’ve taken of yourself holding a beer on the beach with the sunset in the background? We lost count a while ago…

Sure, drinking when you’re on dry land is still a blast, but why not take boozing to the next level.

DISCLAIMER: Keep in mind laws on drinking at these beaches vary so drink at your own risk.

1. Smathers Beach (Key West, FL)

With around 2 miles of beach front and imported sand from the Bahamas, this beach in the Florida Keys is a perfect place to sip a few beverages.

2. Venice Beach (Los Angeles, CA)

Now this beach may not be for everyone, but if you enjoy people watching then this is the place for you. Basically a circus on the water, this beach is home to a pedestrian only promenade stretching around 2.5 miles, hosting some of the most “unique” people in the world. Now crack open that beer and enjoy the show.

3. Waikki Beach (Honolulu, HI)

About a 2 mile stretch of beaches in the great state of Hawaii. These beaches used to be home to the Hawaiian Royalty. Who doesn’t want to plop down in the sand and suck down a mixed drink where royalty once was? Hawaii is also 6 hours behind the eastern time zone, so if you feel like sipping some drinks at, let’s say 8am, it’s really 2pm back home which makes everything seem much more acceptable.

4. Coligny Beach (Hilton Head, SC)

Located in the most popular area of Hilton Head, this beach is a drinkers paradise. Sit back in the sand and refresh yourself with a beer… Or five. Or enjoy a nice visit to the Tiki Hut, a bar located right on the beach.

5. Siesta Key Beach (Sarasota, FL)

Often topping the lists of the best beaches in America, Siesta Key is the place to be on a nice sunny day, with a cold drink in hand, and plenty locked and loaded to ensure a day full of boozing’ in the sun. With crystal white sand that is brought in, this place will make you feel like you are drinking on a beach in the Bahamas. A great plus, being on the Gulf of Mexico, it gives you a great excuse to sip on some Mexican drinks, such as Corona, Modelo and Tequila.
