Nothing makes a vacation great like taking a long trip to the beach. Most of us will never have the luxury of owning a cottage or condo on the coast, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t find some amazing getaways to stay at for a few weeks, allowing us to enjoy everything that the beach has to offer. With that in mind, these are the best 5 coastal getaways in the world.
1. Corfu – Greece
Greece became something of a forgotten tourist country when its economy began to struggle some years ago, but the country has since put a lot of effort into rebuilding their tourist sector, and Corfu is an absolute must see for anyone heading to Greece.
Corfu is a small island that isn’t as well-known as many other beaches in Greece, but it’s undoubtedly one of the very best. Travellers will be able to find a plethora of great hotels to stay at, along with friendly people and
2. Manzanillo – Mexico
Mexico is well known for its many beautiful beach towns, but not all of them are cheap enough for most tourists to visit, except for Manzanillo. This port city offers some of the best seafood in the country, and its relaxed vibe makes it perfect as a getaway spot, whether it’s for exploring the countryside or parking off near the beach with some River Belle Casino games.
There is a wide variety of accommodation to choose from, and it’s often possible to rent an entire house with a beach view for a vacation. If that’s not an option, smaller, budget hotels can be found throughout the area.
3. Ocho Rios – Jamaica
There are few other countries quite as beautiful and laid back as Jamaica, and it’s the ultimate destination for those looking for a wild and lush country with great culture, great people, and great beaches.
Perhaps one of the best in the entire country is Ocho Rios, which is usually much cheaper than staying in the famous Montego Bay. Resorts of every shape and size can be found in Ocho Rios, and there’s plenty to do and see, meaning that visitors will never find themselves getting bored.
4. Phuket – Thailand
Thailand should be the first choice for anyone looking for a destination that’s both fun, beautiful, and easy on the wallet. The biggest cost to the traveller is the flight to Thailand, but once there, foreigners will quickly be blown away at how cheap it is to stay in Thailand for a long period of time. Phuket is arguably the most famous beach town in the country and is now famous for the many luxury resorts that it offers.
5. San Juan – Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is a small but extremely vibrant country that gives visitors direct access to the beauty of the Caribbean without the high costs that are usually involved. There are few places that can offer quite the same experience as San Jaun, a small beach town that was originally part of the Spanish forts in the area. It offers great scenery, and plenty of fascinating history, along with some of the best beaches in the world.
