Many vacation goers have testified that going to Bali is the equivalent of entering a tropical paradise. According to an article by U.S. News, what makes Bali such an ideal vacation place is that it does not just offer tourists wonderful beaches. It also comes with picturesque surroundings. The sea provides the perfect backdrop to the island’s beautiful mountains and volcanoes, while the curving coastlines are littered with pagodas.
Source d’Argent, Seychelles
There is a reason why this beach has become a favorite film location for a slew of Hollywood movies. Its crystalline waters and pristine sand doesn’t require photo editing – making it the ideal social media friendly vacation spot. If you want a postcard-worthy beach destination, you can’t go wrong with Source d’Argent, Seychelles, a secluded cove in the island.
Pink Beach, Zamboanga, Philippines
If you want to avoid the crowds, forget Boracay and Bohol, the world-famous travel destinations in the Philippines. Instead, go to the southern part of the country to Santa Cruz Island in Zamboanga, where you can relax on a beach with pink sand. National Geographic touched on the reddish color that comes from the crushed red organ-pipe corals. The large concentration of these corals means that they stain the whole beach pink.
Barbados may be known as the home country of global pop sensation Rihanna, but it also remains one of the most beautiful and popular beach destinations in the world, and also one of the most visited by celebrities. The last one to be spotted there was TV host Jeremy Kyle, whose primetime chat show recently announced a sponsorship deal with gaming site Slingo Boom. Kyle was vacationing with his new girlfriend and former nanny Vicky Burton.
Trou aux Biches, Mauritius
Mauritius pretty much allows you to tick off everything on your bucket list: it has quiet beaches, it’s family-friendly, and it offers a lot of water activities. The Telegraph recommends the northern part of the island because it has the most number of beaches, ranging from small coves to wide stretches of powdery white or golden sand. Trou aux Biches is a white sand beach with clear, shallow waters, making this an ideal vacation spot for families.
