There’s really nothing that can beat a wicked beach party. There are places all over the world that are notorious for hosting the craziest, loudest, rowdiest parties over white sand too, and we want to check them all out. It’s time to grab that swimsuit, feel the sand between your toes, and have an ice-cold drink in one (or both) of your hands.

Next time you’re planning a vacation, you’ll want to check one of these spots off your list, for sure:
