Living on a beach is the dream to many homeowners. But for many, the high cost keeps them from ever making it a reality.

However, you don’t need seven figures in your bank balance to buy in some beach towns. Realtor.com®’s research team analyzed the nation’s largest metro areas with the highest share of listings with keywords such as “beach,” “beachfront,” and “ocean.” They also factored in the number of water activities for their rankings. The beach towns were then ranked based on their median prices from May 2018 to April 2019.
