A beach is a place great for many things. To unwind, spend time with your family, play some Frisbee, dip your toes into the innovative waterfront sports or even to sit and do nothing. For this very reason, it is no surprise that the beach is one place that vacationers across all demographics, and walks of life would say yes to. Off the top of my head, the most sought after destinations for a sun-kissed holiday would be the Bahamas or the Hawaiian islands. Most of the South Asian tropics are also amazing summer vacation destinations. Still undecided? With a few simple clips, you will come across the gorgeous beaches in Europe and the Caribbean too. That is how easy it is today.
There is one thing I have to pick a bone about though. The idea of deciding on the best beaches is kind of lost on me. Each person likes the beach for different reasons and accordingly, the order of preference may vary. While the typical beach is the one with clear blue water that makes turquoise shadows that are out of this world, here are few of the lesser-known beach destinations you can check out on your next holiday, which will more specifically appeal to what you would call a ‘’perfect holiday’’.
Neshotah Park Beach in Two Rivers
Almost all of us would not stick to the coasts in our quest for a dream holiday by the ocean. But did you know that a beach can come to be by a lake or a large river too? Though the beach is most commonly associated with the seashore this is viable, the reason why is the part I will leave for you to piece together in your own time.
Despite not fitting into the profile of a classic beach, the beach by Lake Michigan is a wholesome holiday with lots of shallow water for family swimming, and clear sand to chill out in. With changing stations, bathrooms and concession stand just nearby, it is the perfect place for parents to not lose their mind having to shuttle the kids back and forth.
The annual kite festival that happens during Labour Day weekend is in itself quite an extravaganza and is a major event that brings in crowds to the beach.
Koh Lanta, Thailand
For a serene beach holiday away from the crowds, the parties, and the general commotion of the beach, Koh Lanta, Thailand is a treasure cove that enables peace. With just the sound of the winds and the waves crashing against the rocks to accompany you during your long walks along the shores here is where you can rekindle your passion during the intimate conversations by the beach and romantic candlelit dinners under the stars. Considered as one of the most secluded beaches in the world, it is un-doubtfully an enjoyable combo of both cultural and natural sites that will lead the way to delightful conversations with your loved one.
Cumberland Island, Georgia
Cumberland Island is Georgia’s largest barrier island, it is so authentic in its form that even wild horses are said to roam along its shore. How amazing is that? This wild and untouched beach is a great way to experience the coastal area just for what it is and to take in the beauty of the well thought ecosystem that flourishes in this part of the world. With only 300 visitors per day. This has got to be one of the rarely visited beaches known to man.
West Bay, Roatán, Honduras
West Bay, Roatán, Honduras is home to the second-largest coral reef structure in the world. It is ranked as the fourth-best beach for snorkeling and boasts of clear and calm waters that make it ideal for freediving. With quiet and secure resort villages just around the corner, you will not be cut off from the world, in case that is what stops you from furthering into your explorations of the breath-taking under waters of the sea.
Ibo Islands, Mozambique
Not enough compliments are extended to the beauty of the African beaches as the focal point of an African holiday is to explore the majestic beasts that call it home. But the lessor known fact of exotic beach havens in Africa is slowly but surely coming into light. Here the waters are turquoise with an array of marine life dutifully settled into to entertain you on your holiday.
The IBO islands were a vital trading outpost for Mozambique in the past and the presence of the Portuguese, Indian, and Arab are well exhibited in their architecture that you can also sightsee in this gorgeous island.
