Beach vacations are the best kind of vacations. Sure, I love a city break just as much as anyone else, but I love them even more when the city’s by the seaside. I also love active vacations, just as long as I can chill on the beach with a mojito once the hard work’s over.
To begin with, I wanted to write about my favorite beach, but then when I started to think about it, I realized there are too many to choose from. The problem with being a beach lover is that I’ve gone on so many beach vacations that I could never pick just one. Instead, I want to share just a few of the best.
The Best Beaches in the World
1. Eagle Beach
Aruba’s Eagle Beach is one of the top ranked beaches in the Caribbean for a reason. It consistently tops the best of lists. I love vacations to Eagle Beach because of the soft sands and stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. If you’re patient enough to walk along the beach away from the main spots, you can also make sure that you avoid the crowds.
2. Navagio Beach
This Greek beach is one of my favorite vacation spots in Europe, and I almost missed out on it completely! It’s one of those places that I only discovered after I picked up a tip from someone else during my travels. Also known as Shipwreck Beach and Smuggler’s Cove, Navagio Beach has a ton of history to it while also just being one of the best beaches I’ve ever been to. Just be warned that it’s only accessible by boat.
3. Playa del Amore
How’s your Spanish? As you can probably tell from the name here, this charming little slice of Mexico is called Lover’s Beach in English, and there’s a reason for that. It’s the perfect vacation if you’re travelling with your significant other, and I’d recommend watching the sun go down together with a margarita in hand. If you’re lucky, you’ll even hear a little mariachi music to keep you entertained. I can see why this is such a popular honeymoon spot!
4. Ocean Beach
San Diego’s Ocean Beach is probably my favorite beach in the States, mostly because I love how you can be chilling on the beach at one moment and browsing through the historic business district the next. San Diego also has an excellent nightlife scene, so if you’re looking for a US beach where you can sunbathe all day and party all night, you’ll want to visit Ocean Beach on your next vacation.
Now that you know just a few of my favorite beach spots for a vacation full of sun, sea, and sand, you’re ready to arrange your next beach trip. Just don’t forget to pack your sunscreen and to make sure that you pick out a beach that works for you, whether you’re into surfing and swimming, or whether you prefer to sunbathe. Have a fantastic vacation!
