Looking for a grand slam summer vacation that won't break the bank? Vrbo — the popular vacation rental site — has you covered for your 2019 fun in the sun.

This year, the company has released the best value beach destinations for 2019, both domestically and internationally, and the domestic list spotlights five Southern hot spots. To come up with their rankings for the top value beach getaways, Vrbo analyzed the most popular international and domestic beach destinations for travelers in 2018, pulling the average daily rates paid for vacation rentals to determine the places where travelers receive the most value.

Numero uno on the domestic front? The one-and-only Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with the average price per night amounting to $54 per person. The entire top five list for the best value beach destinations were Southern locales, ranging from Mississippi to Florida. Scroll down to see the full list.
