Seven Trips Every Beach Lover Must Take

As winter takes hold in many parts of India, beaches offer just the right amount of sun, entertainment and adventure for travellers to plot an escape. Fortunately, India and its neighboring states in South East Asia boast of some of the best beaches in the world. Here is Tripoto’s pick of seven must visit locations for beach lover.

1: Radha Nagar Beach (Andaman & Nicobar Islands)

The beauty and allure of Radha Nagar Beach is unparalleled in all of India. This beach is blessed with the softest white sand, turquoise blue water and a beautiful mountain as a backdrop. Its remote location in Ritchie’s Archipelago ensures that it is less crowded vis a vis Goa and Kerala. This beach is the stuff of dreams!

2: Secret Lagoon Beach (Phillipines)

It is no secret that this beach is one of the best in South East Asia. A short climb to one side actually leads to a hidden swimming pool surrounded by rocks walls. It is a nice little adventure to take on a holiday.

3: Mui Ne Beach, Vietnam

Imagine sand dunes that stand face- to-face with the shoreline. No, we are not talking about two different locations. That is exactly how the terrain is at the Mui Ne Beach in Vietnam.  This beach is truly one-of-a-kind! Moreover, strong winds and clear skies make the Mi Ne Beach a haven for surfers.

4: Gokarna (Karnataka)

Gokarna is a place visited with equal ardour by believers and hedonists. It is a holy town for Hindus and draws large number of devotees to the temples. However, the fun lovers amongst us needn’t be disappointed. Bonfire, music and parties are an inseparable part of the town’s nightlife.  An hour’s drive from the Goa border, it has four beaches (Kudle, Om, Halfmoon, and Paradise) in close proximity.

7: Varkala (Kerala)

Varkala, located 60-kilometers from Kochi, is arguably the best beach in Kerala. The long stretch of cliff on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other is a view to behold on your trip to the Backwaters.
