Dipping your toes into the warm waters of the Gulf with an umbrella drink in hand does not have to cost a fortune. Fun in the sun can be enjoyed on a budget. Here are a few ways to take in that ocean breeze without breaking the bank this summer:

DO plan ahead for your activities. This way, you can search for special offers or even save money by booking far in advance.

DON’T forget you can save money by traveling during off-peak times. Beach activities will be less expensive then too!

DO make sure your resort has a large, recreational pool. There will be days you will want a break from the beach, but not the water!
