5 Best Beach Holidays Around The World
So you want to go on a beach holiday? But not just any beach holiday – you want that whole… sand between your toes, wind in your hair, salty-sea spray on your skin type of thing? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Guest-blogger Jane Roberts has compiled a list of 5 of the best beach holidays around the world. Nothing but crystal clear turquoise water and relaxation 2.0 on this list ladies and gents, and even though I tend subscribe to the whole “Australia has most of the best beaches in the world” ideology, the following beach holidays definitely give Bondi a run for it’s money.
Kauai Beach, Hawaii: If Happiness Were A Beach Then This Would Be It…
One of the world’s most scenic beaches, Lanikai Beach is a treasure chest of glistening sand, lush tropical forests, emerald water and magnificent palm trees swaying in the wind. The gorgeous shore attracts travellers every year and is a famous beach destination with the younger bohemes and Gypset types. The beach is relatively under-the-radar and difficult to find, making it all the more exciting once your feet hit the sand! Protected by the nearby coral reef, the surf stays quite calm, which makes the water appear a picture perfect deep green all year round.
Maldives: The Sunny Side Of Life…
The Maldives Islands are a dream beach destination for everyone who wants to get lost in the picturesque beauty of nature. And with promises of luxurious indulgence in 5 star resorts, you get the very best of both worlds here. A treat for the adventure freaks, you can choose to swim among tropical fish 25 meters underwater or enjoy a stroll through the lush greenery of the island, bonding with both nature and your loved one.
Bora Bora, Tahiti: Glass-Bottomed Overwater Bungalows, anyone?
Originally called Pora Pora, meaning “first born” in Tahitian, this gorgeous island played a vital role in the local myth of Hiro and his son Ohatatama. It was first discovered by James Cook in 1769 during a voyage to French Polynesia who protected the beach’s inherent beauty. Beautiful emerald waters meet glistening white sand, the valleys of hibiscus and mighty hilltops mirroring on the shiny water surface are one of the few things that will take your breath away. Just 30 kilometres long, this beautiful little island lies in a well-protected lagoon with sandy shores, giving it the nickname “The Romantic Island”.
The Hamptons, New York: Chic Beach Retreat…
The Hamptons is one of the most gorgeous beaches on Long Island, New York; as the untouched shoreline is still exactly the way it was: Perfect. Beginning around Southampton and running east to the island of Montauk, the magnificent windswept dunes and waving grass borders will leave a lasting impression on your memory. The Hamptons crowd on the other hand is anything but serene and, chances are, walking down the main road will feel like stepping onto a glitterati postcard with the who’s who of New York around you.
Nantucket Island, Massachusetts: Fun In The Sun…
An ecologist’s dream, Nantucket Island is a beautiful stretch of unspoiled and un-commercialized natural paradise. The magnificent beaches bless travellers and wanderers with some of the best sunsets in the world and a beautiful scenic view during the twilight.
