Back to MIAWalked around South Beach before heading to the airport.I didn’t enjoy Miami like I thought I would. I guess the weather not being nice was a turn off. I had the opportunity to go to Daytona Beach last year as well as Captiva Island and it was beautiful and nice tropical vacation. Probably won't go back to Miami but I'm glad I crossed it off the list.
Florida - The Sunshine State in the United States is the land of sun, sand and sea. It has few of the world's best beaches encompassing from Atlantic Ocean in its east coast to the Gulf of Mexico in the west coast, no wonder this part of the world is a beach lovers paradise. Whether you love isolated beaches or family-friendly one with live entertainments and exotic beach parties, Florida has everything to offer you. But my favorite is Siesta beach, located on southwest coast of Siesta Key island, Florida. It is blessed with the world's finest, whitest sand as well as exotic flowers, magnificent banyan trees and preserved mangrove shores where ibis, snowy egrets and herons claim refuge for their young. And yeah, the breathtaking sunset which is every photographers dream to capture! Do share your favorite beach in the comments below? P.S.- This post also got published in Huff Post, US. You can find it here.
The Lanikai Beach at Oahu is an incredible spot to begin you holiday. In the event that you are even now slowing down from your adventure and the anxiety of your ordinary life then this is a shoreline for the start of your holiday. It is the ideal spot to swim, the waters are smooth and ensured by a seaward reef. The sand on this shoreline is similar to a delicate sugar, so you can delight in the warmth of the sun, after your swim, while viewing the coconut palms; the ideal spot to understand that you have arrived in Hawaii.
It would be almost time for sunset when we reach here. If it is so, it means we are on schedule. Like me, you may have a good fortune of catching a local fisherman at work trying to nab some dinner for the evening. Don't miss the chance of snapping the Golden Gate Bridge from Baker's Beach. It was truly a quintessential moment for me. The beach is a place to socialize with the plenty of fellow tourists or locals, giving you enough space to enjoy at the same time.
Hike time: 20 mins. Honomalino Honomalino beach is accessible from Mioli’i which is one of the few remaining traditional Hawaiian fishing villages lying at the end of a long winding road along the southern Kona Coast. Don’t be offended if you’re not welcomed with a warm Aloha by local villagers, they are a tight-knit community and enjoy their privacy. I wouldn’t suggest pointing your cameras at them either. From the Mioli’i Beach Park, between the restrooms and a yellow church, you will find a clearly marked sign posting the beginning of the trail. Follow it for about 20 minutes through the trees and lava rocks, staying to the right whenever it forks to avoid trespassing on private property. The trail is quite easy though be sure to wear shoes and watch out for big thorns. Honomalino is actually a gray, or salt-and-pepper beach because it has a mixture of black lava sand and white sand. It lined with palm trees and kiawe trees, with morning glories crawling along the sand. Be sure to bring some snorkeling gear because this bay has some great coral and good swimming as long as the water is calm.
Ho'okipa Beach Park
If you’re an experienced surfer, head to the north coast of Maui, close to Kahului, and catch the morning waves at Ho’okipa Beach. If you windsurf, you’ve probably already heard of Ho’okipa as a windsurfing mecca. Wait until the afternoon and hit the water with hundreds of other windsurfers from around the world. Maui also has a world-class spot for kitesurfers, known appropriately as Kite Beach.
