Sayulita, Mexico

While most head to fancier Cancun or Cabo, opt to holiday in the beach town of Sayulita—a cheaper and more laid-back destination. Situated on the west coast of Mexico, Sayulita is known for its surfing. You don’t only have to hit the board to enjoy it—as you can also chill by a hammock, explore tons of shops while sipping on summer cocktails and eating tacos to your heart’s content! Now, if that doesn’t sound like fun, we don’t know what will. 


Havelock island in Andaman Islands

With thick forests and twinkling teal lagoons, this island has some of the best diving in South Asia according to the Lonely Planet Guide. Of the archipelago’s 572 islands, only 36 are inhabited and a small selection are open to travellers. This island with its beautiful sun-toasted sandy beaches fringed with green canopy of the rain-fed forests beckon everyone to enjoy the frolic and fun at the azure sea. To the south, the Nicobar Islands have, so far, been strictly off limits to tourists—as it’s strictly prohibited by the law to enter tribal reserves and meet or photograph the indigenous people. Fun trivia: The Andamans is closer to Indonesia than India despite being the latter’s Union Territory! 



One of the most popular spots for surfing on the Indian Ocean, Arugam Bay owes its fame to a few solid surf schools—which offer lessons, board rentals and repairs. It’s a tiny place with a population of a few hundred people and this quietude is exactly what draws most wave-and-sun seekers to the bay.


Beautiful beach on Koh Rong island in Cambodia

Located just off the coast of Sihanoukville, Cambodia, Koh Rong is famous for its serene beauty. The main tourist beach Koh Touch creates a vibrant party atmosphere, with lots of hotels, bars, and nightclubs. The quieter and less-busier beaches—Long Set Beach, Lonely Beach, and Palm Beach—are more relaxing destinations. With open seas, the south side of Koh Rong is particularly beautiful while the east side is characterised by smooth hills that gently slope towards the crescent-shaped beaches, inlets, and bays. Young travellers will love Koh Touch Beach—as it’s considered to be a vital stop on any Southeast Asia party itinerary!


Corfu island, Greece

Sitting in the North of the Ionian Sea, Corfu in Greece is strongly influenced by the Venetians, the French and the English and for this reason has a cosmopolitan, multicultural charm. While Greece can be a very expensive place to visit in general, this small town is relatively inexpensive compared to the most popular islands. With clean water and surrounded by lush greenery, beaches in Corfu, Greece, attract many visitors every summer. Paleokastritsa is the most famous beach resort, while other beaches include Agios Gordis, Pelekas and Glyfada. Many Corfu beaches are organised and lined up with hotels, seaside restaurants, water sports centres, and beach bars. Since the 8th century BC, the island the Greeks call Kerkyra (capital of Corfu), has been prized for its untamed beauty and strategic location. Ancient armies fought to possess it, while in the early days of modern Greece it was a beacon of learning.


Gili Islands, Indonesia

With no cars or motorbikes and no distractions other than beautiful tropical island scenery, the Gili islands off the northwest coast of Lombok in Indonesia—are truly an ideal destination for a tropical getaway. Offering spectacular reefs and ominous dive sites like Shark Reef, the Gili Trawangan, and the Gili islands are the perfect escape for anyone wanting to escape from concrete jungles  to the beautiful, natural, and relaxing surroundings. Floating in a turquoise sea and fringed by white sand and coconut palms, the Gilis are a vision of paradise. They’re quickly becoming a tropical hot spot—speedboats can take you directly from Bali and hip new hotels are rising like the price of fuel!


La Digue, Seychelles

Not all of Seychelles’ beaches were created equally, every island has its signature shores, ranging from the liveliest to the most secluded romantic coves protected from prevailing winds. Some stretch undeniably long, deserted and bordered with wild coconut trees; others are picture-perfectly blessed small half-moon beaches with massive smooth boulders and navy-blue lagoons—parts of the movie Castaway were filmed here. You don’t have to look further than Anse Marron—it’s one of the planet’s most beautiful beaches but accessible by foot only. The preferred method of transport here is—old-fashioned bicycles adding to the feeling of going back in time. Famed for being one of the most photographed beaches on the planet, Anse Source d’Argent is a sight to behold. Its dazzling white sands are lapped by shallow emerald waters, backed by some of La Digue’s most beautiful granite boulders and shaded by craning coconut palms.


El Nido, Palawan, Philippines
