Health experts and political leaders have made it clear: social distancing and staying home are some of the best ways to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t sneak a little getaway from your living room.

Museums around the world are offering virtual tours of their exhibits,  Broadway is streaming past shows,  DJ’s are hosting virtual parties, and now you can escape your couch thanks to hotel live cams. 

These hotels are offering live streams that will allow you to get away right now:

Malibu Beach Inn: Malibu, California

There’s so much to love about this live stream starting with its live beach cam!

Hotel Del Coronado: Coronado, California

Here’s how Hotel Del Coronado explains its live cam “Crashing waves. Ocean breezes. Beaming sunshine. Our live beach cams offer a glimpse of the breathtaking views from Hotel del Coronado. Nothing compares to the feeling of warm sand and cool water you’ll find on our golden sand beach along the edge of the Pacific.”

Le Barthelemy Hotel & Spa: St. Barths

Rather than a video, the hotel recorded the sounds of the sea from its own natural preserve that can be downloaded anytime.
