Beaches, beaches, beaches. Beaches are the definition of summer. Did you really go on a summer vacation if you didn’t lay on a beach, get sand in hard to reach places and get thrashed by waves?
Whether you’re seeking inspiration for your next summer vacation or just like admiring the beauty of the sand and the ocean, this post is for you.
I’ve been staring at the edge of the water, as long as I can remember, never really knowing why?….
Yes, I did chuck in a Moana song lyric in this post, because Moana was
1. an amazing film and you should watch it and 2. it’s all about the beach and water.
Back to the topic at hand – whether you seek solitude, a mild adventure with friends or just a tan, there is a beach with your name on it.
But what are the best beaches in the world? And how quickly can we get there?
A private and secluded hideaway, this 1000 acre island is luxury at its finest. Local legend says that female pirate Anne Bonny camped out here in the 1720s, which is why it was originally called – Pirate Cay.
What is more picture perfect than a pink lagoon? Located on the island of Crete, Elafonissi beach is known for its pure white sand which in certain light can be seen as being pink.
Many consider this to be the most beautiful beach in the world and brings with its many tourists. This is due to its golden sand, crystal-clear water and impressive boulder formations.
Australia is known for its fantastic coastline and Manly is one of the best surfing beaches in the country. While it may lack an element of seclusion, it is a perfect beach getaway close to the city.
When you think of Africa, you tend to think of its wildlife and safari, but it boasts beautiful coastlines. The north coastline has an aquarium that hosts small turtles found on the beach until they are ready for the survival in the sea.
These islands are all about going off the grid. With a scattering of tiny sand islets, you can explore hidden alcoves and enjoy the purity of the shore and sand.
If white sandy beaches are too cliche, what about a black sandy beach? This beach is sacred to the Hawaiian people and combines the crashing of the waves with lush green forest. A true natural wonder.
