Do you often find yourself craving the feeling of soft sand between your toes? Do you imagine looking out at a breathtaking sunset while the sound of rolling waves fills your ears? If the answer is yes, then you need to head to the beach before the summer is over! Here are a few of the most beautiful beaches that will leave you sun-kissed and satisfied!
Coronado Beach, California
Who said you had to travel far and wide to find amazing beaches? Coronado Beach is equal parts beauty and fun, with its white sand and usual boogie boarders, sand castle builders and sunbathers out and about! Plan to wake up early like the surfers at least once while visiting Coronado Beach and head to the shore for some fresh air, peace and quiet, and a stunning sunrise.
Yes, the beach is perfect. If you’re looking to get away with man’s best friend, visit Dog Beach, a paradise unlike any other, where dogs can play and unleash their inner pup on the beach or in the water! If you enjoy your trip to Coronado beach, which you will, plan to come back during the months of December through February to enjoy some whale watching!
Ever have that one friend who went to Fiji years ago but is still talking about how great the trip was? Now’s your time to book a flight and find out what all the buzz is about!
There’s so much to do on this delightfully secluded island including swimming and diving its clear, turquoise waters, pampering yourself in one of many high-end resorts and spas, or enjoying bitter beer, one of the islands dizzying delicacies!
Try something new like take a mud bath at the Fiji Mud Baths located on the main island of Viti Levu. Naturally warmed by a volcanic source, these mud baths allow you to relax and rejuvenate while chatting with locals and visitors also visiting this hot spot. You might just want to stay forever.
Nusa Dua Beach, Bali, Indonesia
July is almost over but it’s not too late to pack the bikini and enjoy some sunshine on a beach in Bali, Indonesia.
For the ultimate experience in Bali, book a stay at The Melia, a fairly new and expansive resort. The resort offers excellent service, a modern, luxury design, hidden Hindu temples, multiple pools, and private villas! Allow yourself to get out of the hotel and visit the quiet and pristine Nusa Dua Beach. Pull up a beach chair, sip on a cocktail, and just take it all in.
Punalu’u Beach, Hawaii
First off, black sand! Yes, Punalu’u’s sand gets its unique color from lava fragments after lava cools instantly in the water and shatters into many different pieces. If you need any more reason to travel to this scenic location, it’s great for swimming and coastal hiking. When you get a chance, mosey on over to Ninole Cove for snorkeling too!
Fun Fact: Because the black sand absorbs and retains heat from the sun, sea turtles build their nests here. Keep an eye out and you might just see some turtles sunbathing!
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Head south to the Yucatán Peninsula where you’ll find the popular Playa Del Carmen!
All beaches are open to the public, which means you don’t have to stay in a particular hotel to fully enjoy what Playa Del Carmen beaches have to offer! You’ll have to stay somewhere, though, so might we suggest the lavish Hotel Rui Palace Riviera Maya. Get an aromatherapy massage or enjoy a deep-cleansing facial at the hotel’s wonderful spa. Stroll through the public square, walking distance from the beach, or head down La Quinta Avenida where delicious eateries and cute shops await you!
