With the summer months finally upon us, wouldn’t you agree that it’s finally time to gather the blankets and towels, pack the cooler, and hit the beach? Yeah, we thought you’d feel that way!
Now, you may have a preferred beach that’s right near where you live, and that’s all well and good. But, wouldn’t you rather have a beach-going experience this summer that’s something you’ll remember for a lifetime?
If so, then you’re going to love this list! On it, we’ve pulled together the 10 best places in the world for hitting the beach this summer.
These beaches are all over the world. We’ve got one down in San Diego (which ahs some of the most beautiful weather in the world year round) that adventurous types are sure to live. Likewise, we’ve also found one off the coast of Italy that simply has to be seen to be believed.
Going to the beach is always a joy, but going to one of the best beaches in the world is an experience that’s all together different. If you’re ready to have a summer you’ll never forget, then make sure you plan a trip to one of these sandy gems:
1. El Nido (Philippines)
Sitting just below gorgeous limestone cliffs that bake in the sun, this might be the most beautiful beach in all of the Philippines.
Really, though, it doesn’t matter where you go in the Philippines, as there’s always a gorgeous beach somewhere nearby.
2. Puglia (Italy)
This coastal Italian town has everything that most people dream about when they think of the ultimate Italian vacation.
The small inlets that provide plenty of sand and surf are beautiful in and of themselves, but then there’re the old buildings that tower overhead too!
With beautiful white beaches leading into gorgeous and crystal-clear surf, there’s everything to love about the island of Guam.
If you want to have the ultimate stay and beach experience on this island, be sure to book your stay in the city of Tumon.
4. Darkwood Beach (Antigua)
Antigua is known for its beaches, and many travelers agree that Darkwood Beach is the very best.
However, no matter where you are on this gorgeous island, you’re never too far away from sand and surf.
As one of the hottest travel destinations in the entire world, and a favorite of the rich and famous, Maldives is a real treasure.
In addition to enjoying the gorgeous sand and surf, why not book a stay in one of the many overwater bungalows that dot the shore?
Sitting out in the Mediterranean, this island is one of the most beautiful places in the entire world.
Aside from the delicious food which you can enjoy anywhere on the island, there’s also over 600-miles of beach to sink your toes into.
7. Ocean Beach (California)
For those who want to experience a quirky urban environment in addition to the beach, Ocean Beach in San Diego can’t be beat.
Or, if you’re looking for something that’s a little more “refined”, then you can head up to the gorgeous beaches of La Jolla.
8. Riviera Nayarit (Mexico)
Known for the quality and beauty of its beaches, you’ll find that most are often over-crowded in Mexico.
Thankfully, there are still places like the ideal Riviera Nayarit, which have yet to attract the attention of places like Cabo.
9. The Emerald Coast (Ecuador)
In the eyes of many world travelers, the Emerald Coast of Ecuador deserves a spot on the world’s list of natural wonders.
Aside from the beautiful beaches you’ll find here, you’ll also find a landscape that’s eminently worth exploration.
10. San Sebastian (Spain)
When Spaniards and Europeans want to have an amazing beach experience, San Sebastian is always a top consideration.
For the world traveler, there’s so much to enjoy here aside form the beach too, from amazing nightlight to old-world buildings and architecture.
