Top 8 Beach Adventures To Add In Your Bucket Lists
Nothing tops the beach, especially when you bust your butt in the office for vacation time. But let’s be honest, if you’re the kind of traveler who craves adventure, burying your toes in the sand gets old after a few days. The good news? There’s a lot more to beaching than margaritas and chaise longues. Here’s a list of the world’s coolest coastal experiences that you’ve never thought of — you know, just in case your next getaway needs a little spicing up.
San Pedro Ambergris Caye, Belize
Take snorkeling and diving to the next level at Shark Ray Alley in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Located about 4 miles south of San Pedro, Belize, this slice of ocean attracts harmless nurse sharks, rays, sea turtles, spotted dolphins and dozens of species of tropical fish. Boat tours take you out for less than what you’ll spend on dinner. Swim with the curious marine life and bring an underwater camera to capture it all.
Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is pocked with inlet beaches and bays perfect for sea-kayaking. Head to Zaton Bay Beach, 6 miles north of Dubrovnik, where you can put in a kayak and cruise around, sheltered from the country’s infamous coastal gusts. Check out the bubbling underground springs, stone villas from the Renaissance, and cliffs and caves. Plus, a handful of private coves offer the perfect spot for a mid-paddle snorkel or a cliff-jumping break before turning around.
