Since we cannot go to the beach this Summer, let’s reminisce and look back at the good ol’ days with these awesome reads instead!

It’s summer again and we’re still cooped up in our houses—for our own safety, of course. But we do miss going to the beach. It may still be a distant destination for most of us, but at least we can try to remember those awesome moments of travel through reading these books.

We’ve compiled 5 Pop Fiction titles with beach destination settings that will take you from Nasugbu, Batangas to Santorini, Greece in just a few pages. You’ll almost feel like you went to the beach yourself. Almost.

Just Fall In Love Again


So much of Just Fall In Love Again’s story happens at the beach. Drake and Kei Marie confess their love to each other here. The beach is where they were reunited after being apart for so long. Heck, the climax of the story—where a major revelation about Kei’s condition is revealed to Drake—also takes place at the beach. If you’re looking for a beach read, you won’t go wrong with asherinakenza’s latest Pop Fiction book.

Best Friend Ko…

In theperfectinfinity’s Best Friend Ko…, the beach is the setting for a major turning point in Kath and Darien’s story. Before that, their relationship was in a deadlock after Kath confessed and Darien rejected her—but only because he hadn’t yet realized that he was already falling for her. It’s been awkward for both of them since then… until this fated beach trip when finally—finally!—he tells her he loves her.
