If your idea of the perfect summer holiday involves relaxing and soaking up the sun on the beach, then you are spoiled for choice when it comes to destinations. Although there are many terrific places to do this all around the world, it can also be hard to know where the best places to go are as sometimes these place can be overcrowded and not have enough to keep you entertained. With this in mind, here are a few of the best places, in my opinion, for a sunny summer vacation where you can spend your days soaking up the sun and relaxing on the beach.
Due to its geographical location, Spain boasts a beautiful climate throughout the year with temperatures reaching the mid 30’s during summer. It is also home to truly breathtaking beaches which are ideal if you want to relax with a good book or splash in the ocean. The Costa del Sol is always popular with holidaymakers but you could also consider Costa Brava which can be quieter or even the Canary Islands. No matter where you choose, Spain holidays will always be enjoyable, especially if you have your own private villa to enjoy too.
Cancun features picturesque beaches with gorgeous white sandy beaches, palm trees and crystal blue waters along with a lovely tropical climate. Although you could happily spend the entire holiday gazing out over the waters, there is also a lot more to do in the region such as exploring the ancient Mayan temples.
There is a very good reason why so many people flock to Florida during the warmer months of the year as it is the ideal spot for a summer vacation. Here you will find a lovely climate, sandy shores, cities with beaches and stunning natural parks. It is popular with families but it can also be a nice spot for a romantic break or a trip with a group of friends.
Adventurous travelers that are seeking out stunning beaches that are not as populated as others will be intrigued by Brazil as a summer holiday destination. It has amazing beaches all around the country and is somewhere that is less-travelled than other destinations, so you could benefit from extra peace and quiet.
When you picture what an idyllic beach looks like there is a very good chance that you are picturing something similar to what you find in the Bahamas - one of the most luxurious beach destinations on the planet. The beaches are incredibly beautiful here, and the relaxed way of life ensures that it is easy to chill out and enjoy yourself here, plus the local cuisine is sublime.
Those that like to spend their summer holiday relaxing on the beach and catching rays can sometimes find it hard to choose a suitable destination. Beach holidays can sometimes be disappointing if they are overcrowded or if the beaches are not as idyllic as you had hoped. The above destinations will certainly not disappoint as they are the best beach holidays destination all around the world with beautiful weather, picture-perfect beaches and enough to keep you happy and entertained during your stay.
