Explore the ocean on a cruise

Going on a cruise is a popular choice for couples, families and a large group of friends. It offers a great value for what you pay because it provides everything from accommodation and food, to all-day activities. It’s also ideal if you want to see multiple destinations at once. We’ve all had a dream about Caribbean cruises and leaving our troubles behind. These floating cities can be considered a romantic getaway, a chance to socialize with other like-minded individuals, or give you the exotic vacation you’ve always desired. Decide where you want to go first, many cruise ships offer a variety of destinations that include the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and even Alaska. Booking your tours and shore excursions in advance is highly recommended due to them being sold out fast. As for the activities, cruise ships offer a variety from spa treatments, dinner reservations and shows.

Escape to the perfect Island getaway

Escape the hustle and bustle of your city for the surreal experience of staying on a secluded island; the calm and serenity is definitely therapeutic. The Maldives offer the perfect amount of beauty and seclusion with its many overwater bungalows or private villas. These romantic bungalows with beach-chic décor and clear glass floor sections offer stunning views of clear waters and nature; perfect for a romantic getaway! Most villas have a private deck, Jacuzzi and diving and snorkeling excursions. The island of Petit St Vincent also offers the ideal private island getaway. This luxurious secluded island has a collection of cozy cottages and villas all surrounded by palm trees and greenery and overlooks the bluest of Caribbean waters. Most of these resorts offer all-inclusive packages, so no need to prepare much. Private island getaways are the perfect opportunity to truly unplug and unwind.

Enjoy wildlife with beach safaris

Beach resorts in Langkawi, Malaysia are not only home to paradise-like beaches and beautiful greenery, but they’re also home to unique wildlife experiences. Staying in one of these resorts will offer you the chance to go on a beach safari, one that allows you close encounters with monkeys, eagles, otters and fish. Southeast Asia’s first Geopark lies beyond Langkawi’s beaches and there you can kayak along the gorgeous waters and witness its wildlife preserve. Many of the rooms cater to big families with private villas surrounded by lush and tropical greenery. Staying at Vamizi in Mozambique is another unique experience as you can get to experience humpback whales in their natural habitat. Vamizi with its white sand and azure waters is the ideal castaway beach vacation. It also offers deep sea fishing trips and kayaking. Resorts in Jamaica take beach vacations to the next level by offering an equestrian experience. Guests can go horseback riding on the soft beach or splash into immaculate waters of Jamaica with their horse. These resorts also offer riding lessons as well as yoga sessions.

All you need is a good beach, a lush resort and the warm sun to have an unforgettable summer vacation. Often at times, we take life too seriously and vacations by the sea are the perfect way to reward yourself for your hard earned effort throughout the rest of the year.
