Consider this your guide to bachelorette party beach destinations all across the U.S. and beyond.
Home to arguably some of the best beaches in the contiguous United States, California is a bachelorette destination no-brainer. With bachelorette party beach destinations like Laguna Beach, Malibu, Santa Monica, and San Diego, there’s no shortage of spots to enjoy the Pacific with a group of gal pals by your side. Book a stay at the world-renowned Four Seasons Biltmore or Fess Parker Resort, both in Santa Barbara, where you’re a short drive away from local attractions like the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, Lotusland, and Shoreline Park. If you’re looking to venture a bit further down the California coastline, enjoy the Estancia La Jolla in La Jolla for a beach and spa experience all rolled into one. While you’re there, take in the must-sees like Balboa Park and La Jolla Cove.
With endless beaches along the gorgeous Gulf Coast, Florida is an easy favorite for getaways. Miami Beach, Clearwater, Destin and Key West can offer up some of the best bachelorette party beach destinations in the state, but don’t overlook the hidden gems like Caladesi Island or the quaint resort community, Seaside. Not only is Seaside home to some of the cutest pastel-colored houses and top-notch accommodations like The Pearl Hotel, but it’s also a hop, skip, and a jump from the beautiful Rosemary Beach. If Miami glam is more up your alley, snag a stay at the Eden Roc Miami Beach Resort, or journey down to the Keys to experience breathtaking natural beauty at the Bahia Honda State Park. No matter which spot you choose, Florida will be a wonderful backdrop for your beach bachelorette party.
If you find yourself drawn to the Southeast coast for a weekend with your girls, you’ll find plenty of beautiful beaches right at your fingertips.

Check out traveler favorites like The Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head or Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, and don’t forget to stop for an Instagram at the historic lighthouses you’ll find in the area including, Bodie Island Lighthouse or Harbour Town Light.
Nautical adventures on your bachelorette agenda? Look no further than Northeast go-to’s like Nantucket, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, or Newport, Rhode Island. With an amazing blend of sun and sea—not to mention, some of the best seafood you’ll ever get your hands on—the Northeast coast offers amazing bachelorette beach party destinations with a preppy twist.
