There are so many different destinations around the world that have great beaches, and there’s so much to do both in and out of the water wherever you choose to go. I’ve been planning vacations near beach destinations my whole life, and I’ve read some great stories from members who have gone on some fun-filled getaways to Cape Cod, Florida, Hawaii, Hilton Head, the Pacific Coast, St. Martin and more.
Recently I ventured down to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a beach vacation of my own. Even though I stayed on the Pacific Coast, where the waves are too rough for swimming, we took day trips over to the Sea of Cortez, where the beach was perfect for both relaxing and trying out some water sports (I even took my first surfing lesson!).
Aside from Mexico, there are many other great vacation spots with beautiful coastlines and sandy shores. Although I haven’t been there yet, I’ve heard that the Canary Islands is a fantastic vacation spot – exotic beaches, European culture and delicious cuisine that combines traditional Spanish recipes with African and Latin American influences.
Just writing about the beach has sent me daydreaming. Ahhhh… if only I was there now relaxing in the sun and listening to the waves…
This week on the blog we’ll be sharing stories and photos from RCI subscribing members who have escaped to the sun and sand for a beach getaway. Have you been on a fabulous beach vacation? I’d love to hear about it in your comments. Or if you have a photo of a particularly beautiful ocean view, share it here on the blog! It’s easy, just click here to get started.
