Yes, we love to sit back and relax on laid back beaches but the wanderlust in us would sometimes love to go out, meet people and have a good time. What a better way to do it but in parties, concerts, and festivals. It is even more exciting if done on the seaside. Here are some of the beaches around the world that take hanging out on the beach to a whole new level.
