Playlist: Beach Ready Tunes

Playlist: Beach Ready Tunes


From laid-back jams to pumped up beats, this playlist will have you in the vacation frame of mind faster than you can press “play.”

It’s no doubt that the post-vacation blues can set in the second you step off the plane. No more ocean waves to act as your alarm, champagne in your orange juice in the A.M. or flip flops to replace your work heels. It can be a tough reality to face. Although all good things must come to an end, let’s not forget the most important part – the beginning!

Pre-vacation excitement is a thing to be reveled, celebrated and shared with friends and family. That’s why we hand-selected some of our favorite beach tunes for you to shop, pack and rock out to on the plane leading up to your much anticipated break from reality. (There’s a good chance this playlist combats post-paradise blues, too.)

We’ve included classics like Bob Marley and The Beach Boys, but you’ll find some surprises on our favorite beach tunes. Check out our Beach Ready playlist on Spotify and get ready to claim your spot in the sand.
