Come Christmastime, the right music makes all the difference. If you’re on a beach in the Fort Myers area – or just wish you were – this playlist will get you feeling festive. We’re counting down the top five must-have songs for an island-inspired holiday.

5. Island in the Sun – Weezer

Among the pop-punk group’s biggest hits is this easy-going ode to island life. If you’re listening to it on the beach, just look around, and you’re sure to see some of the lyrics coming to life.

4. Christmas in the Caribbean – Jimmy Buffet

This Jimmy Buffet classic proves that the holiday cheer holds up no matter where you celebrate. Whether you’re in the cold or the warmth, this track will send you on an island escape.

3. Feliz Navidad – José Feliciano

At number three is José Feliciano’s hit, “Feliz Navidad.” His classic feel-good Christmas song, gives this list a bilingual bump. Grab some traditional Puerto Rican food and head toward the sand.

2. Christmas in the Sand – Colbie Caillat

Colbie Caillat’s first Christmas album features a song that’s tailor-made for an island way of life. In writing “Christmas in the Sand,” Caillat said, “not everyone lives in the snow or cold places for Christmas, so why don’t we write some songs for them.” We agree!

1. All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan – Kenny Chesney

This song from Kenny Chesney’s first Christmas album places first on our list, and it’s a track we can all relate to. Grab a piña colada, your sandals and some sunscreen. We’ll see you on the beach.
