It’s almost summer in the northern hemisphere, and for many, that means it’s time to hit the beach.

Airbnb recently took a look at the destinations that have seen the greatest increase in bookings since around this time last year, and unsurprisingly, many of them are on the coast.

Seaside towns in Italy, France, and Spain ranked near the top.

Here are some of the top-trending destinations on Airbnb, all of which have seen more than double the bookings on the rental platform since Memorial Day 2016.
