Five Fabulous Holiday Beaches

Whitehaven, Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia: It’s difficult to choose a top beach in Australia because there are so many fantastic beaches. However, Whitehaven is truly and utterly stunning. Super-fine white sand surrounded by warm, clear, azure waters sandwiched between tropical forest and islands.

Zanzibar, Africa: The island of Zanzibar is a true gem off the east coast of Africa. The awesome beaches on this amazing island offer sand so fine it actually squeaks when you walk barefoot upon it! One of the best is Nungwi, near the northern tip of the island. The coastline has a shallow slope so the sapphire water, white sand and coral build-ups forming a calm sea that stretches for miles.

Las Islas Cíes, Galicia, Spain: Spain doesn’t boast just one sea, but two. Away from the more popular Mediterranean is the Atlantic sea. One of the gems on the Spanish Atlantic coast is Las Islas Cíes, reached by a 40-minute boat trip from the town of Baiona. Cíes is an uninhabited and truly stunning national park, which is open to the public only in summer. Holidaymakers will find whiter than white sands and turquoise waters.

Palawan, the Philippines: The Philippines boasts more than 7,000 islands and a multitude of deserted beaches. You’ll probably find yourself with your very own couples or family beach! And what a beach you’ll have. Gorgeous sands, fabulous waters and even the chance to dive to various wrecks.

Sandwood Bay, north-west Scotland: Okay, so you might not find the hot sun here every day of summer but you will discover a truly stunning beach that will take your breath away. The only way to reach this beach is by foot and over six miles of countryside but it is well worth the effort. It’s a paradise for surfers, too.

Always Dream

I want to curl up here and enjoy my leisure time with a book and cup of hot chocolate /coffee late and relax whilst the Sunshine warms me and the breeze plays through my hair.

My Dreams:)
