Fantasy Fest 2017, October 20-29 - A collection of webcams from Key West to watch all of the wild action during the annual Fantasy Fest celebration. The action can be a little on the adult side, so don't watch if offended easily! This is the Halloween celebration for the exhibitionist and voyeur. You can see almost anything. There is also a place for you to upload screen captures you may have of the action, and to review what others have uploaded. A very interesting time of year to watch!
Manchebo Beach Resort & Spa - Located in the "Low Rise" section of Aruba on Eagle Beach, the Manchebo Beach Resort targets a more relaxing type of environment than that found on Palm Beach. Eagle Beach is one of the few locations in Aruba that topless sun bathing is accepted (yes, some have been on the webcam). The beach view of this webcam is used for weddings, and has a great view of the sunset. The image is a fairly good quality so it works well to zoom in without too much impact to the quality. It is on my favorites list because of the view.
Royal Palms - Located on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, the Royal Palms has several webcams. I like this one, as it is the type of place I would love to be now, having a nice cold frozen drink. The Beach Bar area either has lots of people (when the cruise ships are in port) or just a few (after they all leave). Either time looks fun to me. This is a high resolution webcam, and the still images can be expanded several times to zoom in on the scene. Off shore during the day you can see some of the cruise ships in port, and watch them sail away in the afternoon.
Soggy Dollar Beach Bar - Always on the Travel Channel's List of Top 10 Beach Bars, the Soggy Dollar is located on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. While largely known as the place charter boats drop off their guests to have a few drinks on the beach, they also have a few cabins for those that wish to stay over-night. The view from this webcam is fantastic. They do a very good job of keeping the webcam working and the lens clean. It seems to always show beautiful colors of the palm trees and water, and the nice sand beach. It is easy to picture yourself in this scene. I do wish the refresh rate of the webcam was faster!
Akumal Beach - Akumal, just south of the Cancun and Playa del Carmen strip in Mexico, has some of the best beaches and nicest water on webcam. Every morning you can watch as they rake the seaweed from the beach and groom the beach before the tourist arrive. The boats in the water just off shore add to the scene to make this one of the best. Not much action, other than a snorkeling tour that apparently departs from here, and the occasional wedding on the beach. The webcam has great image quality and color, but will freeze from time to time due to traffic (I guess).
Club Orient - Located on Orient Beach in St. Martin, one of the most famous beaches in the Caribbean, not just because of the beautiful beach and water, but also because of the people watching. This is an international destination with a mix of travelers from all over the world. The webcam is located at Club Orient (note the famous yellow umbrellas), the clothing optional resort at one end of the beach. However, the resolution of the webcam keeps this a PG rated view. We have been there once on one of our cruise vacations, and would like to return and spend more time.
Eden House Pool and Spa - Great streaming webcams from the Eden House Hotel in Key West Florida. The new webcams are not the same HD quality video as the old cams, but seem to work more often. This is a great one to click on the Full Screen Option and watch the people by the pool. The best time to watch these webcams is around Halloween. Many of those that dress for the parties in Key West stay at this hotel. I've seen several interesting costumes (or lack of costumes) by the pool! However, this is not an easy webcam to save webcam captures from.
The Chateau Motel - Another great quality streaming webcam from the Chateau Motel Pool in Panama City. This also has a Full Screen Option. The view is not that close, but includes the pool, beach and a few palm trees. Looks like a nice place to stay. This also an interesting webcam to watch when there is a tropical storm in the Gulf. Nice view of the surf.
Daytona Beach - The webcam from the Ocean Deck, a landmark oceanfront beach club in Daytona can be very interesting during the warmer weather. It is located over the volleyball nets. It was controlled by the viewers, but that function seems to have been removed. Obviously many of the viewers are very interested in the newest swimsuit fashions the girls are wearing on the beach, so don't expect to be able to watch a good game of beach volleyball. The picture quality is not as good as some, but the subject matter makes it worth it!
Turtle Bay - The Turtle Bay Resort has a couple of the best streaming webcams in Hawaii. Located on Oahu, these cams have a great view of the water and the beach. It takes a few seconds to start, and they do require a high-speed internet connection, but the quality and view are amazing. I can't think of a better quality webcam on the entire site. The water and beach view make the quality of the webcam well worth it. Looks like a great place to get out the ole snorkel.
Calypso - Not sure why I like this cam so much, but I keep going back to it, so thought I should add it to the list. A very natural, often deserted beach on Abacos in the Bahamas. Some days the water can be pretty rough, but other days looks as clear and still as glass. The webcam does not have a very fast refresh rate, and does not allow any user control, but is nice to watch. May have to book the Calypso one of these days and check this out in person!
B.O.B. (Babes On the Beach) - An active matrix of live webcams focused on the best views on the beach. A web page for the semi-voyeur in all of us that just want a closer view of the action on the beach. Many of these webcams are controlled by the user, so they are likely zoomed in on what they find interesting. Maybe something you might find interesting as well? Take a look. Not always something interesting, but you never know unless you look. Also includes a place to save the more interesting pictures, and to see what you missed!.
