Sunny days and beach holidays go together like butter on toast. Here are the best beaches in the world for a paradise experience for you
Everyone needs a vacation every now and then. Instead of heading to the same old touristy spots where you are harassed all the time by vendors plying their wares, why not head to these gorgeous beaches instead for a spot of R&R?
You might be surprised; some of these spots are much closer to home than you think.
Sun Island Beach, Maldives
This gem in the middle of the Indian Ocean is chockfull of celebrity visitors as well as honeymooners. However, you should be able to find a fairly quiet spot, especially during low-peak season.
Take a dip in the clear blue waters for a spot of snorkelling and diving amongst the many pretty corals. The nearby resorts also offer bungalows on stilts, over the water. Pure bliss.
Tanjung Rhu Beach, Langkawi, Malaysia
This beautiful beach is quiet with smooth sand and clear blue waters. Unlike the neighbouring touristy Cenang Beach, you will rarely spot a windsurfer or wakeboarder in sight at Tanjung Rhu.
The waters here are surrounded by mangroves and ancient limestone caves, making the view at once serene and mysterious.
