Here’s an idea! You can sit calmly, reflect back on your life and smile in the knowledge that you travelled; you smelled the sea and felt the sand under your toes on the best beaches around the world. But that will only happen if you spend a few years before 50, touching the pristine waters and breathing the sugary sand.
Therefore, no matter what age you are right now, you can make the future picture a pleasant one. So start planning your next escapade right away. We bring you some of the most enchanting beaches from around the world, to add to your bucket list:
Playa Conchal, Costa Rica
They say, the fun is in the journey, rather than the destination – and it is best described in the experience at Palaya Conchal. The scenic beauty mesmerizes you as you drive out onto a beach, up a rocky hill and only then do you arrive to gasp at the magnificent scene that is the Playa Conchal beach! The shoreline is crunchy pieces of broken shells, the tepid water is crystal clear, and every woman vacationer here is a happy soul!
Barceló Beach, Punta Cana
Turquoise water, waving palm trees and sand the colour of golden sunshine – that’s Barceló Beach for you. From water sports to a dream white wedding, the surreal beaches of Barceló are a complete package. Sip a cocktail of the freshest Mediterranean fruits as you unleash the most poetic of your thoughts to the most romantic sunset ever!
Blue Beach, Vieques, Puerto Rico
There’s one word that captures the essence of Blue Beach perfectly – enchanting. While the name is a giveaway, Blue beach is one of the most dreamlike beaches around the world. With huge rocks shadowing the satin water here and there, don’t be amazed if the place brings out your adventurous streak. The water, dotted with tiny rocks, is the perfect place to have a heart-to-heart with your love.
Siesta Beach, Sarasota, Florida
Do not let the name fool you; you probably wouldn’t even want to wink, lest you miss any moment of the splendour that this beach is! Relaxed, laid back and the sparkling water of the Gulf of Mexico – life indeed is beautiful.
