The Best Destinations For Sun, Sea & Sand Holidays


If you really want to unwind and escape your daily life on your next vacation then you will want to look into a sun, sea and sand holiday. These can be incredibly rejuvenating and allow you to return home feeling energised and raring to go (as well as tanned!). There are many excellent sun, sea and sand destinations all around the world and somewhere for every taste and budget, but the following are a few of the best places in the world for chilling out on the beach, sipping on delicious cocktails and splashing around in the water. Many also have a range of cultural attractions to keep you entertained too.

Acapulco, Mexico

You will certainly benefit from plenty of sun, sea, and sand in the lively beach resort town of Acapulco on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. This city is known for its gorgeous sandy beaches, high rise hotels, and electric nightlife, so it is a great choice for a beach holiday if you are looking to have some fun in addition to chilling out on the sand each day. You can also find affordable hotels when you search for hoteles en Acapulco online.

Florida, USA

Florida is a great place for a beach holiday as it features a wide range of breathtaking beaches, 4-star hotels, all-inclusive resorts and all kinds of great attractions and culture to enjoy. It also features a lovely climate which is why it is affectionately known as the Sunshine State and attracts sun worshippers from all around the world to its shores each year. Whether you are traveling with kids or with a group of mates, Florida is somewhere that ticks all of the boxes.

Costa Del Sol, Spain

A popular region in the south of Spain in Andalusia, the Costa Del Sol is filled with cheap and cheerful resorts, beautiful sandy beaches and vibrant towns and cities. This means that there is always a great atmosphere and it is ideal if you are looking to splash in the sea, relax on the beach and indulge in fine food and drink. If you are looking for somewhere a bit quieter, Costa Brava could be a better option for you.

Thailand

You really are spoilt for choice when looking at beaches in Thailand as there are many stunning tropical stretches on the mainland and also on islands including the Phi Phi Islands, Phuket, Krabi and Koh Samui. In addition to postcard-perfect beaches, Thailand also features amazing ancient ruins, intricate temples, a lively capital city, and electric nightlife. It is an area that many people come backpacking through and it is easy to see why, but, equally, it is a great destination if you are simply seeking sun, sea, and sand.

You cannot go wrong with any of the above if you are looking to chill out on the beach and soak up the sun. These destinations boast the best beaches in the entire world with stunning stretches of sand, beautiful azure waters, and lovely climates, but they also have plenty more to do and see in the area for times that you want to explore.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
