There is no denying it – I am a beach fanatic. It wasn’t always the case. It wasn’t till 2006 that I discovered my passion for the sun, the sand, and the water. Since then, however, I haven’t been able to control this passion. When I saw Lonely Planet’s list of the best beaches in the world to put up a hammock, I knew I had to put these places on my own list. Here are my most desired destinations in the list.
The Beach that Time Forgot – that’s how this area is described. The only drawback to this beach is that you cannot really swim as the tides are low. However, you can put up that hammock and be lazy all day.
Pulau Perhentian, Malaysia
Lonely Planet’s write up says “Except for snorkelling, diving, frolicking, swimming, sunning your body or pretending you’re either Brooke Shields or Christopher Atkins inThe Blue Lagoon (1980), there’s nothing to do.” I think that that just about describes paradise for me! The biggest selling point: this place is so free from any commercial activities!
Kai Islands, Indonesia
They say that more and more people are proclaiming these islands to be the best in the world. I wouldn’t know, but I would sure like to find out for myself! Again, there isn’t much to do in terms of partying, but you can snorkel all you want and simply enjoy nature.
North Stradbroke Island, Australia
This area is said to offer some of the largest sand islands in the world. The waves are high and are best for surfing. There are also parties monthly, so extroverts will find it more interesting.
