24. Margaritaville (Pensacola Beach, Florida)
Love it or hate it, there's no denying that this familiar chain bar is close to the heart of millions in America.
We like Land Shark Landing, a pavilion that's part of the Margaritaville Beach Hotel on Pensacola Beach.
A rotating menu of activities including beach-blanket movie nights, beach ping pong and volleyball on the sand.
A giant, fin-shaped fire pit, hammocks under palm trees and live band performances all contribute to the bar's kitschy charm.

23. Tabon Te Keekee (North Tarawa, Kiribati)
Whatever you thought you knew about beach bars, you better forget it if you make the trip through the poverty stricken South Tarawa (an island in Kiribati) up to North Tarawa, cross the water in a traditional canoe (for $1) and find yourself in Tabon Te Keekee.
Yes, it has the usual amazing ultra-blue water, traditional Pacific kiakia stilt huts in the sea and more sun than you can lube up for.
But you don't know it's even a bar till you've fallen into a hammock and Karea, the half-English, half-I-Kiribati businessman saunters up and asks what you're having.
If you're drinking like the locals you'll order the XXXX, but we recommend the sour toddy made from coconut sap. It tastes awful, but packs a punch and if you ask Karea nicely he'll probably give you some for free.
North of Tarawa island, cross the water and it's the first stop in North Tarawa
22. UMbar @ Huvafen Fushi (North Male Atoll, Maldives)
On the water's edge looking over the breathtaking infinity pool, this bar has a floor made entirely of super-soft Maldivian sand.
Guests can relax in oversized chairs and take in the magnificent shoreline while sipping champagne cocktails, martinis or fruit juice and fresh coconut concoctions.
There's a cigar menu and daily "dreamers," the local version of Happy Hour, with half-price drinks.

21. The Beach Club @ ME (Cancun, Mexico)
This South Beach-style high energy spot features a sensual infinity pool that connects to the beach via an amphitheater of Bali-style day beds.
DJs mash it up on Fridays and Saturdays, while Chilled Strawberry Sundays provide a more soothing drop-in.
There's a swim-up bar, poolside bar and a lounge open for drinks.

20. 'C' Beach Club (Mauritius)
On the unspoiled south coast in Domaine de Bel Ombre, this is the first beach club on Mauritius. Taking some inspiration from Miami's Nikki Beach and Bali's KU DÉ TA with cozy "love nests" and day beds, it also has a distinctively Mauritian feel.
