A slice of Paradise.
This is what most travellers want, or at least think about, when they fly off to various locales and destinations. It is said that those who travel much often expose themselves to danger. These travellers, however, are also those who get to experience the most that life has to offer, by seeing places, hearing sounds, tasting foods, and experiencing far more things than the “safe” person who can ever dream of.
In most cases, the concerns over one’s safety is all relative. Travel insurance companies make it a practice to educate travellers on how to keep safe while travelling abroad, as the safety of the travellers who purchase travel insurance from them are also in their best interest.
Here are 10 locations that have been described by the travellers who have gone there as being nothing less than a slice of paradise.
1. Cala d’en Serra, Ibiza
Cala d’en Serra is a beach in the northern part of the Spanish Island of Ibiza, in the municipality of Sant Joan de Labritija. The beach itself is a small horseshoe bay known for its pristine waters. The appeal of this beach is in the fact that is surrounded by steep cliffs, giving it a secluded feel, which is perfect for those who wish to get away from the massive crowds typically found in most beaches.
2. Beach at the Dead Sea, Israel
The Dead Sea, also known as the Salt Sea is actually a salt lake that borders Jordan to the East and Israel to the West. The surface and shores of the Dead Sea are 427 meter below sea level, making it the lowest elevation on land on the planet. Because of the sheer density of the seawater here, casual swimming will be more like floating on the water, an experience much enjoyed by those that visit the place.
3. Trunk Bay, Virgin Islands, USA
The beach along Trunk Bay, Virgin Islands is among the main attractions of the Virgin Islands National Park. The white sand beach leads to an underwater snorkelling trail, much loved by those seeking to dive without much gear. The National also features several other trails that allow visitors to enjoy not only the seaside experience but also a very scenic hiking experience as well. A vast canopy of trees give most of the trails a very secluded appeal.
4. Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda
In itself, Bermuda is already a popular tropical tourist destination. Those who have more than just a simple knowledge of the island, however, know that Horseshoe Bay is definitely the best seaside location in Bermuda. A beach with almost immaculately white sand, it is well maintained always kept clean, as it is also used for training by the Bermuda Regiment. Clusters of massive boulders make for great picture backgrounds while at the beach, as these boulders have become so popular in pictures that they are easily recognisable.
5. Phu Quoc, Vietnam
Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam actually boasts of several amazing beaches, all of which are easily among the most favoured destinations of those seeking a tropical getaway. Surprisingly, each beach has a distinct tint of sand colour, as if to identify each specific beach by colour coding. Subtle differences in hues of the sand range from slightly rust red, to white, to light grey, to speckled white. Apart from the spectacular beaches, the island is also popular for serving their native spicy Vietnamese cuisine.
6. La Barceloneta, Barcelona
Spain has always been largely associated with the arts, and this beach in Barcelona, Catalonia is one vacation getaway that combines two favourites: art and fun in the sun. La Barcenoneta has periodically been the location of outdoor art exhibits, and it is actually frequented by art patrons who want to get their fill of unique art and some seaside enjoyment. It is almost impossible to not be in the mood for some art after seeing the sun set on the beautiful bay of this beach.
7. Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman
The beach is actually just about 5.5 miles long, but it does provide a stunning view of the Caribbean sea. Visitors will immediately notice that the sand at the beach has a different feel to it, mainly because it is actually made of coral. Numerous trees dotting the beach make for an excellent picnic spot as it is just next to impossible to stop looking at the breath-taking scenery offered by the beach itself, making it one of the most popular beaches in the world.
8. Saltwhistle Bay in Mayreau, Grenadine
Those looking to disconnect from the electronic worries of the world may find it in the tiny island of Mayreau in the Grenadines Island chain. The island is only accessible by boat, and although it has most recently put up a central generator along Saline Bay, it is still mostly a place of calm and quiet, far away from the hustle and bustle of the mechanised world. The sparse electronics on the island can guarantee that those who do not want to be reached electronically while on vacation will definitely not be disturbed, while there.
9. Huanchaco beach, Peru
People looking for a great seaside experience and a chance to see traditional innovation that still works well will see it in this beachside town in Mochina, Peru. The fisherfolk of Huanchaco still display and even use their caballitos de totora, a watercraft made from reeds that was invented 3,000 years ago. Travel insurance companies often kid that people who go to Huanchaco beach should make sure they are insured as many want to ride the reed crafts into the sea.
10. Furore Fjord, Italy
This location is perhaps the closest one can get to being in a seaside getaway that resembles something out of a fairy-tale story. Surrounded by residences seemingly hewn out of the living rock around the area, this ancient gorge was actually a historical sanctuary for bandits roaming the seas in the past. The view here is as inspiring as it is breath-taking, truly a marvel of creation.
