Where Is The Best Place To Go To The Beach

As a travel editor, my inbox is full of intel on incredible places to visit.

  • On Black Friday and Cyber Monday that includes great deals on hotels, booking sites, and airlines.

  • I'm the most excited about these hotel deals, cheap flights, and cruise savings.

  • Two hotels in one of my favorite places to hit the beach and relax in Mexico have sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

    This one feels a little like letting the secret out on one of my favorite under-the-radar places to book, but it's too good not to share.

    Mayakoba is a complex of four luxury hotels facing the Caribbean Sea in Riviera Maya, close to both Cancun and Tulum. Each hotel has a beautiful beach, lagoons, swimming pools, gourmet dining, and spas. When I visited, you could stay at one hotel, dine at any of the others, and charge it all back to your room.

    Two of the hotels have sales this season:

    Andaz Mayakoba — where I stayed when I visited — is giving customers 10% off on bookings until December 21, 2021, for stays from now through April 30, 2022. Find out more here.

    Fairmont Mayakoba has deals for up to 30% off daily rates until November 29 for travel dates through March 31, 2022. I recommend joining Accor's free membership program to take an extra 10% off, and paying extra for the all-inclusive option since you'll eat most meals there. Find out more here.

    The hotel where I wish I got married, next to Taylor Swift's Rhode Island home, has discounts on one to three-night stays.

    While I loved every minute of my Palm Springs wedding, Ocean House in Westerly, Rhode Island, is where I always envisioned getting married while growing up nearby in Connecticut.

    The hotel sits on a majestic bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, up the hill from the quaint and charming town of Watch Hill. Taylor Swift's home — where she has famously hosted star-studded Fourth of July parties — happens to be next door.

    If you book between November 26 and 29, you can receive 10% off one night, 15% off two nights, or 25% off three nights. The offer is valid for travel beginning December 1, 2021, through March 31, 2022. You can book by calling the hotel at (844) 742-0140.

    I've been dreaming of visiting a Getaway cabin. The rental company has three deals for its tiny cabins.

    You've probably seen Getaway's photogenic tiny cabins all over your Instagram feed where a cozy bed is framed by floor-to-ceiling views through large picture windows.

    I've wanted to spend a cozy winter weekend in one ever since editing this review of a Getaway cabin.

    Now until November 28, you can take $35 off bookings, or through December 5, you can book two or more nights and receive $20 off. On November 29, you can take 25% off a future stay. Find out more here.

    Fiji is reopening to tourists on December 1 with affordable packages for a bucket-list trip.

    ​​After nearly two years of being closed to visitors, Fiji is reopening to fully vaccinated travelers on December 1, according to its official travel site. To welcome guests back, there are many cheap bundled vacation packages available for travel throughout 2022.

    The "Book Your Bula" packages include international airfare bundled with hotels, meals, and transfers.

The deal is available now through January 10, 2022, for departures between December 1, 2021, and November 30, 2022. Find out more here.

    Top-rated airline Emirates is having a sale on airfare to many international destinations. I found cheap round-trip fares from major US airports like New York City and Los Angeles to cities in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East for under $900 on select routes.

    From now until November 28, you can book the following flights for travel between November 25 and March 31, 2022, though some blackout dates apply. Find out more here.

    • New York City (JFK) – Milan (MXP): $599

The deal extends to cruises that depart between December 18, 2021, and March 31, 2023. Find out more here.

    If I could drop everything and go to Hawaii, I'd take advantage of hotels on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island that are cheaper than usual right now.

    All through the pandemic, I dreamt of escaping to Hawaii. And while I spotted a few good flight deals here and there, Hawaiian hotels are often pricey. There are a number of good Hawaii hotel deals this season, however.

    The luxe Hyatt Regency Maui is giving guests 10% off if they book by December 21, 2021, for travel through April 30, 2022. Find out more here.

    Rooms at the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club in Waikiki are 20% off if you book by November 29, 2021, for travel between December 1, 2021, and December 23, 2021, or between January 2, 2022, and December 23, 2022. As part of the deal, the hotel is waiving amenity fees and off-site self-parking is free. Find out more here, and use the code "CYBER2021" to book.

    If you book a three-night stay at Ko'a Kea Hotel & Resort on Kauai between November 26 and 29, you'll get 22% off rooms, a $100 resort credit, and a $100 spa credit. The resort will also make a $10 donation to the Surfrider Foundation per reservation. Find out more here.

    And if you stay at least seven nights at any Outrigger hotel in Hawaii, you can get 50% off bookings made by December 5. This includes properties along Waikiki Beach on Oahu, a resort in Kona on the Big Island, and more. Find out more here.

    Staying inside a national park leaves more time to enjoy your surroundings. The lodges within Yellowstone, Zion, Glacier, Death Valley, and Grand Canyon are all offering deals.

    You don't have to travel around the globe to discover unparalleled natural beauty. The USA is home to otherworldly national parks, and in my opinion the best way to appreciate them is to stay inside park borders in an official lodge. This way, you'll have more time to explore and can spend less time driving to and from your lodgings — many popular places to stay near national parks are often at least a half-hour away.

    The lodges inside Yellowstone, Zion, Glacier, Death Valley, and Grand Canyon South Rim are all discounted by 20% to 30% if you book by November 30. Travel dates vary but typically range from December 2021 to February or March 2022, with Cedar Creek Lodge at Glacier National Park and Lake Yellowstone Hotel extending into April and May.
