Wanderlust Wednesday: Beach Edition
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me...
I miss the ocean! The warm sand, the waves, the sunburns... I want it all! Here's the beaches currently calling to me...
1.) Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda
Pink sands, beautiful fish, and an adult beverage. My idea of heaven! Just 30 minutes from King's Warf where the cruise ships dock and easy to get to by bus or moped. A must do in Bermuda!
Don't like the crowds? Try Elbow beach! A bit closer to the cruise ships, with a resort just a short walk away to satisfy you alcohol needs. This beach is best reached by moped!
Try the Boston to Bermuda cruise on the Norwegian Dawn starting from $549 a person or NYC to Bermuda on the new Norwegian Escape starting at $689 per person.
2.) Magens Bay, St. Thomas
Kelly's favorite beach in the world! You can swim out for a mile, there's bar service on the beach, and its surrounded by mountains! It did suffer damage from the hurricane season, but its back open and ready for you to discover its joys.
Enjoy this beach as a stop on the only cruise ship custom built for the Caribbean, the Norwegian Bliss, starting at $749 per person.
3.) Waikiki Beach,Oahu, Hawaii
Two miles of white sand make up one of the most widely known beaches in the world! Try your hand at surfing, snorkeling, canoe paddling, or just soak up the Hawaiian sun. Only a few resorts are actually on the beach. Our picks to try are the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach, which you can visit for a week in March for two for $3,700 with air. Or you can try the 6 Golden Apple awarded Moana Surfrider Westin Resort for $3,500 for the same week. Be sure to load your playlist with Moana and Lilo and Stitch!
4.) Seven Mile Beach, Negril, Jamaica
Sugar white sand, crystal waters, and plenty of excursions nearby. Whether you want to sit and relax or take a spin on a glass bottom boat, this beach hosts everything you can ask for.
Try Sandals Negril for a week in March for $6,300 with air or the Riu Palace Tropical Bay for the same week for two for $4,500 with air.
5.) Honokalani Beach, Maui, Hawaii
The beach I dream of while smelling my Yankee Candle called Black Sand Beach. But this beach holds more than just a relaxing day on the black sand. To the locals, this beach is sacred, with many legends surrounding the 122 acres. Swimming is not recommended here, expect in the summertime when the ocean is calm. But there's plenty to do! Hike through Hawaii's largest heiau temple, see lava caves and stone arches!
Stay just 10 minutes away at the Travaasa Hana resort for a week in March for 2 for $5,555 with air.
6.) Ramla Bay, Malta
Called the Red sand beach, but the sand actually appears bright orange! Largely underdeveloped, this beach is great for a relaxing day.
Try a nine night Greek Isles Cruise with Royal Caribbean starting at $998 per person.
