Aug 1, 2013 —  A simple shortcut to getting that golden glow, tanning beds and spray tans may offer quick and convenient bronzing, but they’re no substitute for the sun’s raw rays. Luckily, planet Earth is home to an array of beaches that make soaking natural UV beams as easy as lying down.

Nestled in the shadow of modern skyscrapers and swanky apartment buildings, Oak Street Beach in Chicago is a perfect example. The Second City’s smallest and most upscale sand spot offers guests a chance to get sun-kissed while playing volleyball, cycling, or taking a snooze.

Similarly, Bloemendaal aan Zee, located in the famed Dutch neighborhood of Bloemendaal, is one of the best places to get a tan near Amsterdam. This seaside haunt features ultra-hip beach clubs that afford attendees a chance to catch a solid buzz while they absorb a day’s worth of Vitamin D.

Arguably the finest tanning spot in Europe (and quite possibly the world), Ibiza is home to the picturesque Las Salinas. Gliteratti and jet-setters take full advantage of this exclusive locale and its abundance of cloudless skies by hiking, surfing, and sunbathing.

Tanning booths are a thing of the past. When it comes to obtaining that attractive skin tone you so desperately desire, it’s hard to beat the beach.
