It's nearly summer, which means -- for a certain set of people -- it's nearly time to get half-naked, crispy tan and drink on a beach somewhere around the world.
If that's your thing (and who are we to say that it isn't?) here are nine places you'll want to make haste to and get your party on ASAP.
As we've told you before, Greece is basically paradise on earth, so why not party with your favorite strangers in paradise?
The "St. Tropez of the Adriatic"? Yes please.
Club 55, St. Tropez
What other beach club has French chicness and the presence of Sly Stallone (and in the past, Diddy)?
On the southern shores of Lake Balaton sits Siofok, a town that has a bar called Coke Club. Three cheers for Hungary!
If getting ripped with loads of Europeans sounds like fun to you, go here. Go here now.
Gordon Beach, Tel Aviv
You'll find a solid mix of people -- locals, families and loads of tourists -- and why not party right on the Mediterranean if you can? Also, there's a salt-water pool.
Zrce Beach, Croatia
There are all-hours discos along this beautiful beach. Seems like a fun way to spend a summer day to us.
Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa, Cyprus
Crazy clear water? Check. Vast beach? Check. Parties all the time? Check.
South Beach, Miami
If traveling across the pond seems too cumbersome, you can always head to South Beach, which is a good time year round.
