We’re not going to knock the Caribbean, because it’s undoubtedly one of the best places to go if you’re looking for a beach vacation. But, here’s the thing. If you’ve done the Caribbean over and over again, you’re going to get just a little sick of it.
Well, “sick of it” might not be the right phrase, but we think you get our point. Who could get sick of hanging out on the beach in a tropical climate, after all?
Maybe it’s just that you need a change of pace, a beach vacation that offers something just a little bit different. With this in mind, we’re going to take a look at 10 awesome places you can go for an amazing non-Caribbean beach vacation.

Ask anyone who’s had the chance to vacation in Phuket, and he or she will tell you the same thing we’re about to… It’s life changing!
