As New Yorkers, we either rave about our city, or we desperately whine that we need to “get out,” at least for a few days. And what better time than summer to take yourself from the hustle and bustle to the sandy beaches of Montauk, Miami or Newport? These are the best beach destinations within reach for the wandering New Yorker.

1 EAST, Miami

Make the quick 3-hour flight south to the tropical air and beaches of Miami to get a Caribbean vibe without needing your passport. Stay at Brickell's newest lifestyle hotel, EAST, Miami; with their expansive space, sprawling suite views of downtown MIami, Sugar (their happening bar upstairs), and their incredible pools, you may not even need to leave the hotel. However, if you are so inclined, the beach is a quick 15 minute Uber away. The hotel is also conveniently connected to the new Brickell City Centre, a luxury shopping destination with everything you'll ever need to shop during your trip.

2 Montauk Beach House

Located in the heart of Montauk and the very end of the Hamptons, the Montauk Beach House is a unique, boutique hotel with entertainment, special events, and fun offerings that'll keep your weekend interesting and busy. Just off Route 27, the MBH is only a block away from the beach and all of the town's best restaurants and establishments.

3 Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina

You're probably familiar with Gurney's Montauk, but its sibling in Newport, Rhode Island packs a punch too. If you're looking for tranquility over party, this resort is located on the private Goat Island and surrounded by picturesque Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. Just a short walk from the charming cobblestone streets of Newport, you have the best of the town at your fingertips. Head over to The Pineapple Club to catch a gorgeous waterfront view, order a cocktail, swim and relax.

4 Le Blanc Spa Resort, Cancún

Head over to Cancún's #1 resort, Le Blanc, if you're looking for the ultimate getaway. Le Blanc is an adults-only all-inclusive retreat: All buffet and à la carte meals, snacks, and beverages included. Doesn't get any easier than that.

5 Congress Hall, Cape May

Congress Hall has been 200 years in the making. If you want to stay somewhere with a rich history, Cape May's Congress Hall is the place. Located in the heart of Cape May's sandy beaches and a quick 3 hour drive from the city, you'll be relaxing in a private beach tent in no time. Enjoy the Victorian architecture, lounge by the pool and soak in the charming history of this old-fashioned resort.
