Unless you live on the coast, this dream likely won’t become a reality for a bit, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t keep visualizing your favorite seaside destination. In fact, let us help you even more by sharing a few photos from the world’s most Instagrammed beaches, according to Inkifi.

Inkifi, a photo printing service, recently sifted through Instagram to figure out which beaches around the world got the most love on social media. And a few may be closer than you think.

According to Inkifi’s findings, five of the top 10 most Instagrammed beaches in the world sit in the U.S. But, that’s not to say beaches outside U.S. borders are any less beautiful, they simply have fewer hashtag mentions. Want to see who made the list? Keep scrolling to find out the world’s top 10 most hashtagged beach destinations.

10. Skagen Beach, Denmark

Skagen Beach is one of the more unique seaside destinations to visit as it happens to be the place where the Baltic Sea and the North Sea meet. Just walk to the point to wade through the two seas at once.
