If your beach music doesn't put you in your feels and/or make you want to have a dance party, it’s time to make a new playlist. A mix of head-bangers and soothing escapes is ideal for a good time and, of course, a required nap (or three) in-between a day of swimming and drinking from a koozie. The next time you head on a weekend getaway or pretend to be on one at your desk, radiate good vibes and hit play on our summer beach playlist, below.
