Beach holidays are the best way to unwind and spend your summer. What’s better than tanning at the beach, breathing in the salty ocean air, and talking long walks along the boardwalk during sunset? If you are looking to get away for a beach holiday this year, here are my top picks that will blow you out of the water.
Santorini, or Thera, is an island in the Aegean Sea, southeast of mainland Greece. Its unique landscape is shaped by an enormous volcanic eruption and remains to be one of the most active volcanic centres. The lagoons that resulted from this are one of the most beautiful places to visit for your beach holiday. Having a dip in the calm blue waters is one of the most relaxing experiences. Beaches created as a result of the bay also results in calmer water, and what can be a better pair with that than fine white sand. The iconic white cubicle houses is also a great place to relax, go for a stroll, and enjoy the scenery.
This small Dutch Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela is home to several beautiful beaches. The vast selection is bound to offer something that is up your alley. The dry and sunny weather, blonde beaches, and gentle surf waves mean its the perfect destination for your relaxing unwind beach holiday. The delicate reefs in the shallow waters make it the perfect snorkelling spot, and if you’re into water sports, this is definitely the place for you. Be sure to visit a hidden natural pool destination in Aruba too!
