We’ve all had that weekend on the beach when we were young. Now that you’re older, it’s time to look for better beaches! If you’re a beach fanatic and would have your next vacation at a different beach from your usual spot, you may not know where to start!
Luckily, the travel channel has a list of the best beaches around the world, all divided in different categories, which will no doubt help you find the best beach for you and your friends or family!
Best Party Beach
Most college students in the Eastern Seaboard and the South know that the best party beach in the U.S. is South Beach, Fl, however, the Travel Channel has also dubbed it the best party beach in the world. South Beach can seem like a quiet seaside town in the off season, but during vacation season, hordes of young college students and tourist flock to this party Mecca. It’s definitely something to experience.
Best Family Beach
Refer to an experienced travel agent like Jeff Bartel, as a good resource for travel information for family beaches. Bartel frequently plans events on great beaches – ones such as Destin Beach in Florida. Destin is considered the best family beach because of it’s tranquil ambiance, family friendly rates and family-centered attractions in the area.
Best Romantic Beach
Looking for a relaxing week vacation on private, golden sands, crystal blue waters and romantic and amazing panoramas? Matira Beach in Bora Bora, in Tahiti may just be what you’re looking for! Located in French Polynesia, this island paradise has been considered one of the most romantic beach spots in the world due to its seclusion and couple-friendly rates. It’s the best place to ignite, or even re-ignite your flame!
Best Sexy Beach
When we go to the beach, we go for two reasons: fun in the sun and people watching. According to the Travel Channel, the sexiest beach in the world of 2013 is Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. With all the attractive people savoring the white, hot sands and cool, blue waters, it’s no wonder that this beach has been the inspiration for many American pop music classics. So, next time you find yourself in South America, there’s no way you should miss taking a trip down to Ipanema.
Best Beach Bars
You need two things if you’re planning a trip to the beach: great friends and beer! Rick’s Cafe in Negril, Jamaica has been ranked as the best beach bar in the world. Visitors have a blast in Rick’s Cafe Pool and Ocean Club, which comes complete with sea-side and swim-up bars. It’s also considered the best party destination in Jamaica, so visitors are basically getting a two for one deal.
Best Beach You Haven’t Heard of Yet
Located on a pristine island on the Caribbean, the best beach you haven’t been to is none other than the locally-loved Nevis Beach in Nevis, about 100 miles southeast from Puerto Rico. Nevis Beach is given this title due to its seclusion, growing tourist industry (great deals) and underrating. If you haven’t been to Nevis Beach, I suggest you go before the rest of the country gets wind of it. Appreciate it while it’s still largely untouched by foreigners.
Best Adventure Beach
If you’re idea of a great beach day involves exploring the surrounding areas, then you may want to visit Hanauma Bay, Oahu, the best adventure beach in the world. Hanauma Bay is considered adventurous because of it’s amazing jungle scapes and rock formations surrounding the beach and its diverse marine life, making it a great spot to snorkel, trek and sunbathe.
Consider these beaches next time you’re looking for a great vacation beach spot. You won’t regret it!
