Beach Holidays

Ah, the beach - soft sand underfoot, an ice-cold drink in your hand and the serene soundtrack of the waves lapping the shore. We don’t get an awful lot of the sun over here, so why not make the most of it while you’re on holiday?

 

Hawaii

Famed the world over for its celebrated seafronts, this Pacific utopia boasts a number of exquisite beaches for those looking to relax on holiday.

Waikiki, thought by many to be the birthplace of modern surfing, is Honolulu’s famous man-made beach on the island of Oahu. This gorgeous cove is perfect for active travellers, perhaps those who even fancy trying their hand at some water sports!

Staying in Honolulu but moving away from the crowds, Sans Souci is a lesser-visited but no less beautiful beach on Oahu’s south-east shore. Its name means ‘No worries’, and with its calm waters, ultra-soft sand and stunning rows of palm trees swaying in the breeze, it’s not hard to see why.

Maui, another famous Hawaiian island, counts the dazzling Kapalua Bay as one of its main attractions. With its clear blue waters, this beach is the perfect location for swimming and snorkelling and is especially popular with families.

Australia

Another famously sun-kissed country, Australia’s coastline is decorated with the golden sands of some of the world’s most wonderful beaches.

If you’re into surfing, there are few better places on the planet than Sydney’s renowned Bondi Beach. Easily accessible from the city’s metropolitan area, Bondi is the epicentre of the Emerald’s City’s aquatic activity.

Love the sea but can’t quite master a surfboard? You’re not alone! Noosa Main Beach is considered by many to be the perfect beach for swimmers. With its serene blue waters and soft sands, this northern idyll is one of the most stunning spots on the Sunshine Coast, and if you’re really lucky you might even be joined by a dolphin or two…

Thailand

One of the world’s most up-and-coming beach destinations, Thailand is home to a range of idyllic sun spots. From secluded coves to sprawling shorelines, this beautiful coastal country boasts some of the most sought-after sunbathing, particularly in the south.

If you want to live your beach break to the fullest, look no further than Patong. Situated on the south-west coast of Phuket, this lively spot is a big hit with party-goers in summer. Brimming with nightlife, Patong is at its most exciting during its famous Full Moon Parties.

Looking for a slightly more relaxed Thai beach break? Just a few miles south you’ll find Kata Beach (Patong’s chilled-out sibling). Here, you’ll be able to stretch out under the endless blue sky with nothing more than the gentle sounds of the sea and the sun’s soothing rays for company.

For those who are more sea lover than sun worshipper, the astonishing Sairee Beach in Koh Tao should fit the bill nicely. Here, you can scuba dive through the stunning clear blue sea, marvelling at the colourful boxfish, turtles and great barracuda that inhabit these wondrous waters.
