No matter what season it may be, taking a beach vacation is both fun and relaxing. There are many beaches all over the world to pick from. You can choose from a white sandy beach, lava rock beach, secluded beach, or a popular beach – as the choice is entirely up to you.

The Polo Beach of Hawaii is a sandy beach with clear water, making it ideal for swimming and also norkeling. It’s located in South Maui and fronted by the Fairmont Kea Lani Maui, which is a luxury beach vacation resort.

2. Seven Mile Beach – Jamaica
The Seven Mile Beach of Negril is the longest stretch of white sand in Jamaica. Located near Negril on the western tip of Jamaica, this beach is truly an awesome sight to behold. Here, you can find your favorite stretch of the beach and coconut palm tree and just relax near the ocean. You can also stay at the Caves, which is located very close to the beach.

3. Atlantis Paradise – Bahamas
Here, you can experience the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean. Atlantis Paradise gives you long romantic walks on the beach or the chance to play in the water at the resort. This paradise offers you tropical climate with your own personal slice of heaven – something every beach lover will truly appreciate.
