Memorial Day is just around the corner, which means if you were hoping to use your time off for a whirlwind beach escape, you'd better get on it!
Lucky for you, we've put together five last-minute beach deals for Memorial Day - a flight deal, two air + hotel packages, a cruise offer and a hotel deal. But don't waste any time — these deals will expire in the next few weeks.
1. $173+ Miami Slashed Fares: Roundtrip to Famous Florida Destination
May just might be the perfect time to visit Miami. The crowds have thinned, rates have dropped and the sun still shines as brightly as ever.
This roundtrip airfare deal will get you to the Magic City from departures across the country. Please note that the $173+ rate shown above is from Atlanta, from May 25 - 31. Even better rates are available later in the summer and fall, as the deal page shows. Fares are also deeply discounted from Baltimore, Dallas, New York City and Chicago.
2. $579+ Puerto Rico Package: Air + 4 Nights at San Juan Water & Beach Club Hotel
Americans who don't hold passports will love this Puerto Rico airfare and four-night hotel combo (you don't need that documentation to travel to this fascinating island).
Located in the Isla Verde district, the San Juan Water & Beach Club Hotel is the only beachfront boutique property in the city. Spend long afternoons on the beach, and then chill out on the lounge beds at MIST Rooftop Bar + Kitchen.
3. $1094+ Waikiki Beach Package: Flights + 4 Nights at Hyatt Place with Free Breakfast
Waikiki Beach, with its golden sands, luxe high-rise hotels and the famous Diamond Head volcanic peak, has year-round appeal for beach lovers.
Make the most of your long weekend off with airfare to Hawaii and a four-night stay at the Hyatt Place. Enjoy city or ocean views from your room, but be careful not to sleep in — a complimentary hot breakfast buffet is served every morning.
The hotel is about 13 miles from Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial, an appropriate place to spend Memorial Day how it was meant to be spent — honoring those who served and died in the nation's armed forces.
4. $689+ 7-Night Cruise: Montego Bay, Grand Cayman & Cozumel from Galveston, Texas
This weeklong beach cruise from Galveston sails from May 28 to June 4 and takes you to three Caribbean beach hotspots: Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Cozumel.
You'll spend a day in each port, and then return to the Carnival Freedom to enjoy the abundant meals, activities and entertainment that come as part of the cruise deal. Choose from several bonus perks, such as an upgrade or up to $1000 cash back.
5. $173+ Miami: 4-Star Hotel in Sunny Isles Beach with Free WiFi
The 4-star Sole on the Ocean hotel is just north of Miami Beach in more tranquil Sunny Isles Beach, which boasts the same white sands and pure blue Atlantic waves as its more famous southern neighbor.
You can choose from deluxe rooms or suites with ocean or city views, and cool off in the outdoor pool or at the beach, where a beach bar awaits. Prefer to keep out of the sun? Binge on your favorite streaming shows with the hotel's free WiFi.
