Beachfront Libraries Are Pretty Much The Best Idea Ever

Posted: Updated:

What's a beach day without a good book?

Beachfront libraries are an ingenious addition to shorelines around the world. Forget your book? Go grab a replacement. Finished your latest read? No worries, many choices await you.

Pop-up libraries are a growing trend at beaches around the world, according to Atlas Obscura. In May, Bulgaria's Black Sea resort, Albena, reopened its beach library for the second summer in a row. The library houses more than 6,000 books.

Most travel trends (Napwrap, anyone?) have us raising an eyebrow, but this is one we can definitely get onboard with.
