Ten place I don’t want to go to. How about ten beaches no one goes to so you can tan, swim, read and about once an hour someone comes by and takes a food and drink order.

Horseshoe Bay Bermuda and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. The beaches in Casa De Campo were stunning also DR.

Party beaches? What about some of those beaches in New Jersey where you can find syringes and stuff right there at the shoreline?

Sadly I have never been to Palolem Beach, Goa, India. My brother lived there until recently and although he owns a home there, divorce will probably ensure that I never see it.

Puerto Penasco can be pretty wild during Spring Break

Rio de Janeiro should have at least two or three of the beaches alone;) Isreal should have two more!

That would be the Bitter End Yacht Club, North Sound, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. Or pretty much any beach in the BVI.

Well, if you want isolation...

The longest Stretch of Undeveloped Barrier Island in The
World, Rich in Natural and Cultural History

Padre Island

National Seashore Texas

With 70 miles of protected coastline, including a coastal prairie, a dynamic dune system, wind tidal flats teeming with life. A sanctuary and nesting grounds for the endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. A haven for 380 species of birds, a rich cultural history including the 1554 Spanish shipwrecks; and the Laguna Madre, one of the few hypersaline lagoon environments left in the world.

North Padre Island is the longest undeveloped barrier island in the world. The National Seashore is 70 miles (110 km) long with 65.5 miles (105.4 km) of Gulf beach. The Park hosts a variety of pristine beach, dune, and tidal flat environments,[1] including the Laguna Madre on its west coast

My favorite beaches are in New England (north of Boston) like Hampton Beach, NH or Old Orchard Beach in ME. The bracing cold water keeps the crowds down most of the year but I've gotten used to the cold North Atlantic. These beaches are lined with clam shacks, hot dog stands and pizza joints and really cheap run-down, ramshackle cottages to rent. But who cares as you spend almost all day out on the beaches anyhow.

Alcohol is "banned" on the beaches but that's why I save empty Gatorade bottles. Make a batch of margaritas the night before, fill the Gatorade jugs with it and put them in the freezer. Next day, everybody thinks you are drinking Gatorade!

Sit out in a lawn chair in the water with a good book and a thick pair of sunglasses. At the end of the day, get some clams, scallops, lobster and corn on the cob. Perfect day at the beach!

partying at the beach.

Party is a noun, not a verb. More bastardization of our language by the nincompoops.

Ooh, I forgot about Hanauma Bay. You are so right. Hanalai bay on Kauai fits the bill too. We used to spend a couple weekends a year at the plantation there. Really miss the islands.

Language evolves.

Party has been used as a verb as far back as I can remember and I have been here for over half a century.

Well I've been here a little longer than that and I have a very good memory. Party started being used as a verb in the late sixties when drug use went through the roof. Although legal, I also include alcohol as a drug. Back then, the mere act of being sh*tfaced was known as partying, even if you just laid around like a zombie.

If you can provide earlier evidence via books, movies, tv shows, etc. I'll gladly change my stance. Until then I'll stick with my 'nincompoop' analysis.

BTW, your link neither supports nor disputes what I say.

I don’t know I have not been to the “Jersey” shore since 2003 and it was gross. Ocean City NJ. It was like Yonkers only with a beach.

“BTW, your link neither supports nor disputes what I say. “

Is there another dictionary that you will believe or is the English language whatever YOU decide?

I go to Long Beach Island on the “Jersey Shore” every summer, and it’s lovely. They do not allow chains (hotels, motels, restaurants) on the island. Mostly it’s beach cottages/houses where folks come for a week or more rental. A lot of Victorian (or neo-Victorian) houses. Not quite Cape May but really very nice and extremely family-friendly.

I have been to LBI it was too noisy and crowded for me. I like Cape Cod and the Carribean.

it’s the timing bunghole ... it wasn’t used that way up to a point, and then it was. That was and still is my point. I can’t help it if you choose to believe ottherwise.

show me that ‘party’ was a verb in a dictionary from the 1950s and I’ll admit you are right. That is timing, bunghole, as in when it first occurred.

You have some sort of problem?

I don’t give a red rat’s ass if you admit I am right or not.

I simply do no care.

So piss off already.

I think you've managed to coin a term.....

"Timing bunghole."

I will use it next weekend at work.

Should I give you credit?

For some weird odd reason.....I think Joe Biden knows exactly what a timing bunghole is..
