The best beach/beaches you've been to?

Recommended Posts

In terms of clear water, soft sand, and little ocean debris. Anywhere in the world. Just trying to compile a list. The beach at an oceanfront resort is more important to me than most everything else...well maybe except the bathroom :P

This was less than a year after the earthquake/tsunami.... The locals told us how the tsunami had totally stole half of the islands vegetation... However we thought it was beautiful.

We liked it because it was NEVER EVER crowded. I think I paid 400 for about 4 days.

some of the best sand is in the DR. i loved that sand. it is very finely ground white corral so it stays cool in the hot sun and soft on your feet. but i thought the beaches were nicer in the MR (the sand there is a little coarser but the water was clearer making for a lot nicer snorkling. the waters in hawaii though are such a gorgeous royal blue. i loved the colors but made for a little merkier snorkling and the water is super salty there for some reason.

Alyssa that place is stunning!!! I bet the buyout was ridiculous for a spot like that! Do you have any pics to share? Just gorgeous!

 

I fell in love with the beach at Mamee Bay/Ocho Rios. Water temp and color is perfect, we spent days just bobbing around in the sea. DH took these pictures:

 

Don't mind the chain-smoking Spaniards to the right...lol

Jean-marcus is MR Mayan Riviera? Lanikai in Hawaii is one of my favorite beaches ever, warm, clear water with powdered sugar soft sand. I have pics but that was before I had a digital cam and I never scanned them onto disc. Here is a picture of Lanikai I ripped from the internet:

I loved the beaches in Negril, Jamaica. Also the beaches in the Philippines (Boracay and especially Palawan) are pretty spectacular too. The colored beaches in Greece are beautiful, but rocky.

 

I love beaches that are clean, un-comercialized, quiet w/ powder soft sand. But there are times when I'm in the mood for a beach party...has anybody been to Paradise Beach in Mykonos, Greece...it's pretty nuts!!!

    • what kind of headpiece did you wear? or are planning to wear?
    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
