Crystal Beach, Philippines
A beautiful location with a distinctly exotic feel, Crystal Beach in Zambales is popular with the surfing crowd. You will find plenty of eateries where you can grab a snack or a cold drink in between sunbathing and surfing there. You should also if at all possible try and catch the famous hammock festival that runs in the area during the high season.
Accommodation is varied with some folks opting for the more rustic and cheap option of beach campsites. While others plump for a little more luxurious stay in one of the high end-hotels. Although, it is worth bearing in mind that as the temps get up to 29-30 degree centigrade, there is not really any issue with staying out of doors if you are up for it.
Playa de San Juan, Spain
Playa de San Juan is one of those beaches that feel like you are truly in paradise. It’s clean, with fine, white sand and blue, warm water. The temperature there reaches over 30-degree centigrade too, so it’s the ideal place in Spain for sun worshippers to relax and recharge. At 3300 m long with rock pools in some places it’s also a great place to go for a rambling walk when sunbathing gets to be a little boring. There are also plenty of ocean view restaurants like Azul Playa and Restaurante Casa Domingo in which to get a meal while still experiencing that seaside feel.
You will find a lot of hotels near the beach front too, Although many families prefer to rent one of the great properties that have a pool that are located a little further back from the coast line. Then drive in when they want to appreciate the beach.
Copacabana Beach, Brazil
Probably one of the world’s most famous beach the Copacabana is somewhere that should definitely be on a sun worshipper bucket list. This is because not only is there 2.5 mile of beach to appreciate, but temp hardly falls below 25-degree all year round!
Yes, for the uninitiated Copacabana Beach can seem a little overwhelming, but you’ll soon get the hang of it when you realize that it works on sections. Try the Leme area if you are looking for somewhere that is a little calmer and quiet. Then there’s the Stock, a section which is primarily LGBT area if that is more your style.
Accommodation is also plentiful in the area with beach side rooms available in hotels from as little as £30 a night! Making Copacabana Beach a bucket list beach break that won’t break the bank!
