A picturesque tropical beach as a winter getaway makes for a smart vacation idea. Imagine frolicking in one of the world’s most spectacular warm-climate beaches as you wait away the passing of the cold months.
Here are 20 of the world’s great tropical beaches to consider as your holiday vacation destination.
1. Bamboo Island Beach, Thailand
Thailand is one of the first countries that come to mind when it comes to gorgeous beaches! First on our list is the Bamboo Island Beach. Located in Southern Thailand and protected by cliffs of limestone that tame the waves, the fantastic Bamboo Island is a remote tropical paradise of white sand and shimmering turquoise-colored waters. It is near the bustling Maya Bay, where the Leonardo DiCaprio starrer, The Beach, was filmed.
Located in Phuket, the natural beauty of Bamboo Island Beach is protected thanks to its status of National Park. Besides enjoying the sun and the sand on Thailand’s most visited beach, it is also a hotspot for snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, swimming, feeding the fish and other recreational water activities. There are only two seasons on the Island – the hot season and the rainy season. Vacationers will want to be sure to visit between January and April, which is the Island’s hot season.
For accommodations, hotel stays are more expensive and the price gets higher for beach front rooms. But that doesn’t mean Bamboo Island Beach isn’t backpackers-friendly. In fact, there are a lot of little dorms and hostels across the island.
Whether you’re looking for a great place to relax or have an adventure, Bamboo Island is the perfect island destination.
