Cheapest Beach Cities to Live in Around the World

Beach

 

More than a few Americans fantasize about picking up their lives and moving to some seaside villa in a country where your rent is less than a car payment. It’s a fantasy because while it might be affordable, few people actually end up doing it. There are things to consider other than rent when moving to a far-flung beach town. Stuff like “does anyone speak English?” Or “is the food edible?” Or “is there Wi-Fi?” Miss these answers and your turquoise-watered fantasy turns into an experience so stressful you end up back in America before getting your first base tan.

But around the world — and even in the US — there are beautiful beach cities where you can live your best life for a lot less than you do now. We talked to expats and looked at cost-of-living figures from Numbeo and Nomad List to find a dozen places where your dollar goes far, and your quality of life goes farther.
