By Casey Irwin | June 26, 2018 | Lifestyle

During the summer, it's almost impossible not to snap a shot of the beach every time your feet hit the sand. This summer, mix up your 'gram feed by adding these insta-worthy locations to your to do list.

The Water Club Pool at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa


Take a break from lounging poolside to pose with a backdrop of the colorful towels, luxurious lounge chairs, and tropical trees that surround this gorgeous rooftop destination. Rent a luxe cabana and have your own private photoshoot. 1 Renaissance Way, Atlantic City

Cape May Lighthouse


One of Cape May’s claims to fame is its functioning lighthouse sitting just off the water. Best photo opp? Climb the stairs to the top for gorgeous views of the southern Jersey coast as far as the eye can see. 215 Lighthouse Ave., Cape May Point

Manasquan Beach


Manasquan is known for being a large, peaceful beach that is ideal for colorful towel shots, water boomerangs, and more. E. Main St., Manasquan

Wooden Walls Murals Project


Eye-catching sea creatures and colorful female faces have been beautifully painted on the walls of the Asbury Park boardwalk. The best way to get art seen and appreciated is through the networks of social media, so get snapping. Asbury Park Boardwalk, NJ

Lucy the Elephant


Lucy has been a Margate resident since 1881, making her a historical landmark worth seeing. Play with the angles when you pose in front of her six-story stature, or climb inside for a whole new perspective. Lucy celebrates her 137th birthday on July 21st, so join the party and share the love for a lot of likes. 9200 Atlantic Ave., Margate City, NJ

Playa Bowls


With its original location sitting just steps from Belmar beach, Playa Bowls’ namesake further proves it's best to be enjoyed with your toes in the sand. Enjoy refreshing bowls, smoothies and juices while soaking up the sun. Our favorite? The Nutaya Pitaya Bowl made with their pitaya blend, topped with granola, banana, blueberry, coconut flakes, raw cacao, and nutella drizzle. 803 Ocean Ave., Belmar, NJ

Rooney’s Ocean Waterfront


Happy hour is taken up a notch with these beach-front views. Enjoy a selection of cocktails while palm trees sway in the background. The perfect candid calls for a couple of “Hot & Dirty” cocktails made with olive and jalapeño-infused vodka, sea salt, and a spicy cayenne rim. 100 Ocean Ave. N., Long Branch, NJ
