Wow! When we asked our fans on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to submit their best beach photos this summer with the hashtag #OysterPics, we had no idea how envious we'd get of everyone's beach getaways! But we loved looking through the hundreds of submissions: Beach shots taken from Cape Cod to Jamaica at beautiful resorts and hotels gave us some intense wanderlust. And now we're passing that wanderlust on to you. (Sorry, it's highly contagious.) Here are our favorite submissions. See your pic? Congrats! Stayed tuned for our next #OysterPics series, which might have a little something to do with the soon-to-be changing leaves...
Okay, okay, we're a little biased...but we had to get in on the action too! And we love this pic from our visit to the Cabo Villas Beach Resort and Spa.

Cathy submitted this photo she took while vacationing in Antigua this year. Looks like she enjoyed her time at the picturesque North Beach!
@ShutterJournal from Australia tweeted this pic during his travels with the caption "The #lonely flight. #OysterPics #photography #birds"
A submission from one of our very own! Oyster staffer @kimberlymufferi shared this shot while at the beach at the El San Juan Resort & Casino in Puerto Rico. "Good morning...Last day in San Juan then back to NYC to shoot Chromeo! #puertorico #elsanjuan"
@biff240 took this great "from the inside looking out" photo while staying at the quaint Chatham Bars Inn in Cape Cod.
@devilinheels posted "All I need. #beach #caribbean #jamaica #montegobay #vacation" along with this pic taken during a stay at Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall All-Inclusive. We agree!
Paul commented "big waves" about this photo. 'Nuff said.
@anamarietamya shared this photo -- the picture of tranquility -- from her trip to Jamaica's Rockhouse Hotel. This pic and the hotel both get high marks in our book.
"Nothing like a Cayman Islands' sunset. @oysterhotels @visitcaymanislands #oysterpics" -- @sandi518
The colors of this Michigan sunset, captured by Dana at Torch Lake, are stunning.
Bill from Illinois posted this amazing photo of Little Dix Bay that shows the beach upon arrival at Virgin Gorda.
We're not surprised @jazstromist was able to find an amazing view during his stay at the St. Regis Princeville in Kauai. It's considered by many to be the premier luxury option in Hawaii, and given the stunning setting overlooking Hanalei Bay, it's hard to disagree.
Now this looks relaxing! Thanks for submitting this pretty photo of the beach in Turks and Caicos, @blinkable79, and thanks to all our fans who made our summer nice and sandy!
