Beaches…. One of the main attractions for alot of people when they travel or go on holiday. The place to get that perfect tan or to cool down in the sea. Living in Mallorca I am blessed that the island is surrounded by some of the best beaches in Europe or even the word. I could have chose 5 from there with ease. In no particular order these are my top 5 beaches in the world. Hopefully sometime soon I will venture to the Carribbean to see what it has to offer in person.
Located about a 50 minute drive from El Nido, Philippines. It’s a long wide stretch of golden sand. One of the biggest beaches Ive been too it’s impossible for it to feel busy. The sea is warm and crystal blue. The perfect place to drink from a fresh coconut.
The smallest of the 3 islands in the gulf of Thailand. There are several nice beaches including Tanote and Sairee beach. The sea is around 28 degrees year round. The island is very popular for scuba diving but actually just snorkelling a few metres from the beach I saw an abundance of marine life. From Sairee beach you can watch the most spectacular sunset.
One of the 262 beaches in Mallorca, Spain. The island is full of many amazing beaches from es trenc and playa de Palma which are long sweeping sand to cala de muro and cala pi which are in tucked away coves. Cala Lombards has some of the clearest water I’ve ever seen.
This stunning beach in Ao Nang, Thailand is only accessible by boat due to tall limestone rocks cutting it from the mainland. There are 3 beaches, the east which consists of mangroves and is unsuitable for swimming and the west which is for beach goers. Tonsai beach is my personal favourite and less well known. It runs for around 600m. At one end it is popular for rock climbing. If you’re lucky you will also see monkeys. Long tail boats also sell a large range of food and drinks at a reasonable price.
The smallest of the Balearic Islands, located just a boat ride away from Ibiza has a beach like I can only imagine you would find in the Caribbean. The sea is turquoise and the sand white and fine. I can imagine that in summer it’s packed.
