That’s right, we’re back with another World’s Best Beaches post-- this time with more glitter. Do you enjoy the sun? Would you rather enjoy it in the bougiest way possible? No judgement here. This is our list of the top 3 fanciest, most unnecessarily extra beaches on earth.
Playa Palmilla - Cabo San Lucas
Camel safari. Camel safari! CAMEL SAFARI!!! Sorry. Let me start at the beginning. The Baja Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and Los Cabos is one of the most beautiful places in Baja California. Stunning desert landscapes kiss the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean to create that picture-perfect, highly Instagrammable beach we all fantasize about.
Marvel at migrating whales or dive deep in some of the region's vast coral reefs. If you want something a little more adrenaline-inducing, you can go hang gliding, or off-roading in the outback...or you could go on a CAMEL SAFARI!
Reethi Rah - MaldivesThe Maldives has a pleasant, relatively even climate year round-- temperatures range from the mid 20s to the mid 30s C (77-95 F). Aside from being one of the most gorgeous places on earth, it boasts a rich culture of music and dance. It’s impossible not to sway along to the beats of the Bodu Beru drum, so don’t even bother trying.
The Maldives boast some of the most pristine beaches in the world (dotted with some of the most luxurious resorts in the world). There’s also a surprising amount of shopping to be enjoyed, from cutting-edge, trendy boutiques to the most established names in resort couture and fashion.
Maroma Beach - Rivirea Maya
Arguably the most loved beach in all of Mexico, and for good reason. High-end resorts, five-star dining, and stylish beach clubs for sunbathing the day away. Dive below the clear blue waters and take in the vibrant fish, sea rays...even whale sharks! Inland, explore the ancient Mayan port city of Tulum, or the famous UNESCO World Heritage recognized pyramids of Chichen Itza.
Experienced Trip Advisor travelers recommend buying a day pass for one of the all inclusive resorts in the area. This way you can have access to the fanciest parts of the beach (not to mention all the food and drink you want, plus use of all the other resort facilities). We did this during our trip to Colombia and it worked like a charm!
That's all for now! ...but where did we miss this time? Let us know in the comments below!
