Tunes to Put on Your Beach Playlist for 2023

Sep 8, 2023 | Best Vacation Tips

The beach is a popular place to visit when you want to put all your cares behind and get away from it all. If you’re reading this, you’re somewhere in the planning stages, unless you’re viewing it while you’re waiting at the airport. 

And if you’re planning every detail of your trip, such as looking into cabana rentals in Holden Beach, viewing the listings for surfboard rentals in Sunset Beach, or sifting through your options for Ocean Isle Beach kayak rentals, then now’s the perfect time to tell you that you should probably get your playlist together so you can make the most of your trip, whether you plan on tanning while lying in the sand or swimming your little heart out. 

Here are some songs you may want to include for 2023:

All Night Long – Lionel Richie

This is an oldie but a goodie, so don’t pass it by just because it came from the 80s. While the album debuted in 1983, don’t let that discourage you; this song is truly a classic and never gets old. Not to mention, with its island vibe, it’s perfect for a day at the beach or even multiple ones. 

What’s really nice about this tune is it’s versatile. If you’re partying with friends, it has an upbeat feel that you can dance to on the beach and sing the lyrics loudly to your heart’s content. On the other hand, if you and your lover are going away for the weekend, it can be a way to bring you two together as you lie on the beach. And if you’re just going away to relax alone, it’s beachy and can provide the ambiance you’re looking for. 

Flowers – Mylie Cyrus 

If you want something a bit more fresh, you might want to add “Flowers” by Mylie Cyrus to your playlist. You could even add both and really shake everything up. 

This song has a little bit of everything. It gradually increases in intensity. Once it reaches the chorus, it has a strong dance-worthy beat, making it ideal if you’re looking to let it all go to the wind and enjoy your trip. 

It even talks about how she participates in activities alone, making a great ode for someone going to the beach alone and not upset in the slightest about it.

Savage – Megan the Stallion 

We want to warn you in advance about this. Megan the Stallion isn’t known for child-friendly lyrics. So, if you’re going on a beach vacation with your children or are easily offended, you may just want to avoid this on your playlist totally or at least have the edited version on your playlist. 

Truly, if you’re looking to recharge while you’re at the beach on your surfboard or kayak rental, this is the ideal song to pump you up before you try your luck, or skill, at surfing or kayaking for the first time. 

Cruisin’ – Smokey Robinson

You can choose this version or the one by Gwenyth Paltrow and Huey Lewis, which is the remake. But one thing is for certain, whether you choose the original or the remake, this song just oozes beach vibes. It’s all about cruising in a car, but it instantly makes you think of driving your car with the top down and your music blaring while you’re driving next to the beach. 

While both versions are on the older side, you just can never play them enough when you’re at the beach. 

At Beach Boys Cabanas, we offer cabana rentals in Holden Beach, kayak rentals in Sunset Beach, and surfboard rentals on Ocean Isle Beach. But our main goal is to help you enjoy your stay at the beach. We hope you can find the perfect songs for your playlist!
