I want it all in one. I recently went to Florida and fell in love with West Palm Beach, but I could never live there due to the lack of climbing.

Are there any locations which combine year round warmth, Florida Key style sand beaches, and readily available spots suitable for someone experienced in bouldering?

Perhaps if this question is worked on and made a lot more specific, i.e. focused on the type of beaches and bouldering that you're looking for, it could be salvaged? – berry120 Apr 24 '12 at 15:17
@berry120 I appreciate that you seem more concerned with just closing questions without reasons than others. – Patrick Scott Apr 24 '12 at 15:36
@PatrickScott I'm always up for salvaging questions where they can be sensibly salvaged! The problem with this type of question is it's quite subjective (different people like different beaches) and isn't the sort of question people generally find is a good fit for SE. So yes, as a general rule of thumb like you suggest get as specific as you can get and your question has more chance of staying open. It's true we don't currently have many questions but off topic questions will still get closed - the quality of the site will degrade otherwise, which won't be good long term for anyone. – berry120 Apr 24 '12 at 15:43
@PatrickScott -- I opened a room for us, please ping me. Would like to discuss in chat. – Russell Steen Apr 24 '12 at 16:26

If you are into sport climbing, Thailand has got to be the place. Specifically, check out Krabi or Railay, also anywhere that offers deep water soloing.

The downside to Thailand is that you'll spend half the year looking for rock that isn't wet (i.e. during rainy season).
