When the temp begins dropping....my desire to go find the sun and warm water starts to rise. I love to leave out from a cold place and land in a warm sunshine drenched water loving local. When I think of the prime beach destination...it's definitely Hawaii. It's just all about relaxation. Now is the time to start planning...even if you aren't going until February or March. Start shopping now. Begin by reading reviews on locations, hotels, activities. Trip Advisor is a good place to start. Then from there you can learn what other people deem a great place. Then go to that specific hotel website and view great pictures and all the amenities. This will help you make a decision. Happy Beach WebSurfing!
