The internet is overflowing with "best beaches" lists, but when travel giant TripAdvisor announces their annual "Best Beaches in the United States," you know their picks are bound to be spot-on.

And if any of TripAdvisor's beaches pique your interest, we've added a few money-saving deals of our own to help you get there.

With no further ado, here are 10 awesome deals to TripAdvisor's 10 best beaches in the United States:

1. Siesta Beach Near Sarasota, Florida

TripAdvisor's 10 Best Beaches

With emerald water and snow-white sand, Siesta Beach has been getting quite a lot of attention in the last few years. It was rated No. 2 on Dr. Beach's Top 10 Beaches list for last year, and took the top slot in 2011. What's the key to this Gulf beach's signature whiter-than-white sand? Unlike the coral-based sand found in most other beaches, this sand is made up of 99% quartz from the Appalachian Mountains.

The Deal

Itching to see it for yourself? Check out this hotel deal for a stay at the 4.5-star guest rated Tropical Beach Resorts (starting rate, $163/night), located a three-minute walk from the beachfront. Rooms have kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs, and the palm-lined outdoor pool and lounge area looks ever-so-inviting.

2. Kaanapali Beach, Maui, Hawaii

TripAdvisor's 10 Best Beaches

Kaanapali Beach's roots as a resort town were formed in the 1960s, and the boom that followed has shaped the area into a long stretch of sand backed up by luxury high-rises and chain hotels. But this doesn't mean the beach has lost its flavor. In fact, a nightly ritual takes place at Black Rock in which cliff divers jump into the water right at sunset, honoring a tradition started by King Kahekiki in the 1700s.

The Deal

The best way to experience Kaanapali Beach for yourself is with the private beach at the family-owned, 4-star guest rated Maui Eldorado Kaanapali. This all-condo resort has three swimming pools and is a mere 12-minute walk from the Whalers Village Museum and restaurants.

The Deal
