10. The Beachcomber
From Lake Michigan to the New England coast, number 10 on the list is The Beachcomber in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Open from Memorial Weekend through Labor Day weekend, the bar and restaurant sits right on Cahoon Hollow Beach amidst 100-foot sand dunes. They are famous for their raw bar and crispy fried clams, and the kids' menu makes it the most family-friendly spot on the countdown.
9. The Sidewalk Café
Venice Beach, California
Located right on Oceanfront Walk and Horizon Avenue, there's no better place to enjoy beautiful Venice Beach than the Sidewalk Café. The outdoor patio has been a coveted spot to eat and people-watch since the café opened 25 years ago. Live acoustic music in the evening is the perfect complement to the fresh homemade food and the nightly happy hour.
8. Icebergs Dining Room and Bar
From Venice Beach, California, we head down under to Iceberg's Dining Room and Bar on Sydney, Australia's Bondi beach. Actors, models, surfers and sun-worshippers flock to a scene that's part bar, part restaurant and part health club. There are three floors to this beach haven, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and immaculate views of Crescent Beach.
7. Willy T.'s Floating Bar
Norman Island, British Virgin Islands
Get off the beach and onto the water at Willy T.'s Floating Bar on BVI's Norman Island. Sitting just offshore, Willy T.'s promises a good time -- things tend to get pretty rowdy later in the day when ski shots and body shots heat up the bar area. Bring the party to shore by purchasing a bottle of Willy T.'s brand rum on your way back to dry land.
6. Hard Rock Beach Club and Bar
Las Vegas, Nevada
It might surprise you that we're heading to a desert for number six on the list -- but Vegas is a desert like no other. The Hard Rock Beach Club and Bar at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is a man-made paradise. The pool's pristine blue water laps against real sand beaches. Swim-up black jack is a big draw, as are the beautiful Las Vegas bodies soaking up the sun.
5. The Surf Lodge
Montauk, New York
Montauk considers itself the "un-Hampton," a sleepy fishing village with miles of beautiful coastline. The Surf Lodge on Fort Pond in Montauk is nestled on the pond's coast, only half a mile from the beach. Don't feel like changing after riding the perfect fat wave? No worries. The Surf Lodge welcomes flip-flops and board shorts as much as a laid-back attitude. Chill out with a cold one while listening to Bob Marley and The Rolling Stones in front of a lakeside bonfire.
4. Duke's Waikiki
Located in the middle of the crescent-shaped beachfront, Duke's Waikiki is an institution enjoyed by tourists and locals. Visit the dining room for award-winning traditional Waikiki fare or grab a cocktail at the Barefoot Bar. There's no better end to a day in Waikiki than with salt in your hair, sand on your feet and a cocktail in your hand from Duke's.
3. Sunset Beach Bar
St. Maarten is an island in the Tropics owned equally by Denmark and France. Number 3 on the list takes us to Sunset Beach Bar in the southern Dutch region. Boasting beautiful views of the St. Maarten sunset, the bar is also where the beautiful people gather to cut loose. Each Tuesday the bar holds a bikini contest -- and they encourage participants to get a little crazy in order to walk home with a little cash.
2. Tropicana Beach Bar
In the Aegean Sea sits Mykonos, an island in the Cyclades cluster. Beloved for its gorgeous beaches, cosmopolitan lifestyle and upbeat atmosphere, Mykonos is a popular tourist destination. The Tropicana Beach Bar sits on Paradise Beach and throws the greatest early-evening beach parties. A hot spot for young people, the drinks flow from early morning until long past sunset.
1. Nikki Beach
South Beach, Miami, Florida
The Nikki Beach Bar in Miami's South Beach is comprised of a large oceanfront complex with an outdoor beach club, restaurant and nightclub. High rollers can enjoy full food and VIP bottle service in the club's sexy cabanas and lounge beds. At night, Club Nikki features fresh-spun music and live entertainment by dancers, percussionists and aerial performers. The hottest party in South Beach is also one of the hottest in the world, so make sure you don't miss it next time you're in "SOBE."
