Beach hotels are more about easy access to the beach rather than anything else. Hotels situated close to the beach are sometimes as close as a few steps away from the shoreline, and also feature outdoor thrills comparable to a theme park - like kayaking, hammocks, sea snorkeling and plenty of animal life in their natural habitat. Spas, swimming pools, and poolside bars are common sights as well.
