If you're hoping for a quiet, family-friendly beach vacation this spring, Panama City Beach, Fla. should definitely not be on your list.

That's because the beach town -- that turns into a spring break mecca each March -- topped Facebook's list of most popular beach destinations for 18-24 year olds.

Also at the top of the list: Santa Monica Beach, Calif. and South Beach. Fla.

Facebook compiled the rankings by volume and increase in Facebook beach check-ins during the month of March compared to February for people 18-24.

So which other beach destination should travelers looking for debauchery check out? Beaches 4-10 on the most popular list are:

4. Gulf Shores Beach, Ala.

5. Port Aransas, Texas

6. Main Beach (Santa Cruz), Calif.

7. Venice Beach, Calif.

8. Fort Myers Beach, Fla.

9. Cocoa Beach, Fla.

10. Mission Beach, Calif.

But Facebook knows not everyone looking for a beach vacation's looking for a party. So they also compiled a top 10 list based on check ins for people over the age of 25. The site called these "family friendly" beaches. But be careful. Santa Monica Beach also made the top three on this list, as did Main Beach, the No 6 beach for "college" beach goers. South Beach wasn't far behind.
