You shouldn’t be surprised to discover that our city has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. After all, it’s in our name! During your week in town, you should begin and end your days with your feet buried in the sand and a salty breeze whistling through your hair. Best of all, when you stay in an oceanfront condo from Seaside Vacations, you’ll be just steps away from the shore!

Picture this: you and your family are laying back in a raft, floating carelessly along a gentle current with the sun on your face. That image doesn’t have to remain a fantasy. We have a selection of condos in 10 resorts that each offers a lazy river as one of their amenities. When you want to take a break from the salt water, you can easily stroll over to your resort and delight in a quiet afternoon. Many of these resorts also include oceanfront pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and more! You could easily enjoy an entire day of fun without ever having to leave the grounds.
