If your beach music doesn't put you in your feels and/or make you want to have a dance party on the sand, it’s time to find a new playlist. Though it's been a long time since we headed on vacation, a girl can dream about a mix of head-bangers and soothing escapes in between a day of swimming and drinking from a koozie. That said, nobody says you actually have to be at the beach to enjoy a great beach playlist. If a great selection of beach songs will help you escape the real world for a little in these unpredictable times, then that's perfectly okay too. So, the next time you head on a weekend getaway (or pretend to be on one as you work from home), radiate good vibes and hit play on our summer beach playlist (you can find the full Spotify playlist at the end of this article, or you can just click here to open it in Spotify).
