The Best Urban Beaches Across the Globe, Part II

HYPERLOCAL

Get at least one more beach day in before the season comes to an end.

Earlier this year, we picked out 10 of the world’s best urban beaches—from the sandy shores of Tel Aviv to Coney Island’s carnival-on-the-coast in Brooklyn, NY. We hold a special place in our hearts for urban beaches—the combination of seaside-meets-city where a getaway from the daily grind is close within reach. Now that the summer is nearing a close (for those north of the equator, at least), we have a few more urban beaches that shouldn’t be missed.

We surfed the globe once more to pick out seven additional cities with weekend-worthy spots that earn them a gold star on our map. So if you live in any of these cities, be sure to get at least one more beach day in before the swimsuit season comes to an end.
