Top 10 Must See Caribbean Beaches

Mar 2, 2015

You could be forgiven for thinking that if you had seen one stunning Caribbean beach, you had seen them all. However, this isn’t actually the case. From white sands that stretch for miles to tiny sheltered coves and dramatic rocky inlets; here is our pick of the top 10 Caribbean beaches you simply must see. Grace Bay – Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Sitting within Princess Alexandra National Park in Providenciales is Grace Bay; one of the most famous and most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Pristine white sands are edged by sparkling turquoise waters, stretching over three miles along the coastline. Providenciales best restaurants and most exclusive resorts are but a sun-dazed stumble away, though we doubt you will want to leave the beach anyway. Trunk Bay – St John Trunk Bay was donated to the US National Park Service by Lawrence S. Rockefeller 50 years ago and has since become known as the best beach in St John. The National Park provides a stunning backdrop for the beach and hiking the historic sugar plantations and surrounding greenery is a great way of killing time between topping-up your tan on the immaculate sands. Trunk Bay’s underwater snorkelling trail attracts enthusiasts from across the world, all of them lured by the promise of seeing at least 30 species of fish and countless underwater monuments in a single 30 minute snorkel session. With waters this clear, we don’t doubt this promise for a second. Love Beach – New Providence Island, Nassau This secluded spot is perfect for those who want to leave the world behind and relax undisturbed. The shallow waters of Love Beach stretch out almost half a mile into the sea, making it prime for snorkelling. Unspoilt reefs sit a mile from the coast but you needn’t venture even that far before you see your first fish; slip on your snorkelling gear and step just a few feet into the water and you’ll soon see them swimming around you. Those seeking hidden treasures deeper down can dive a seemingly endless amount of shipwrecks and caves. Nassau offers some of the best diving in the world and divers flock to experience the area’s blue holes....

Fantastic Island Views In Vanuatu

Fantastic Island Views In Vanuatu

Nov 20, 2014

There are 83 islands making up the archipelago of Vanuatu which, I must say, offer fantastic island views. Other than that, Vanuatu boasts the unforgettable Pacific hospitality, beautiful rainforests, landscapes and great diving activities with lots of fish. When being compared to other Pacific Islands which tend to be expensive, Vanuatu is actually a lot more cheaper since it is not yet a “hotspot” for tourists. Some of the places to visit include the Mele Cascades, Port Villa, Chief Roi Mata’s Domain, Hideaway Island Marine Reserve, Mystery Island and the Vanuatu Jungle Zipline. Accommodation and Food There are a lot of budget hotels around Vanuatu and I was not quite surprised to know that Vanuatu does not have a lot of hostels around. I paid USD40 for a doubke room but the range can raise until USD60. Shop around for the best price and best service before you settle in. That always work out for me. As for the food, casual local meals and lunch had cost me about USD15 per serving but this could get to USD40 if I would spend on a nice hotel dinner. The food vary accordingly though just like any other places. (image by: carawah)   Transportation and Activities There are public transportation in Vanuatu, so you don’t have to worry about it. For each way on bus, the ticket would cost me about USD1.50. When I went to Hideaway Island, I was told that there were free ferry rides to a few islands. I took advantage of the free ferry rides to Hideaway Island and saved on my budget. In Port Villa, the taxis can cost slightly higher than the bus ride. So unless you need to take a taxi ride, do avoid this if you don’t feel like paying more. Activities in Vanuatu are relatively priced. For USD28, I went for snorkeling for a day and the admission to the Cascade waterfalls was about USD22. Tips On Money Saving First, when you arrive in Port Villa, do exchange your money because it often have bette rate than anywhere else around Vanuatu. Then, if you’re planning to see the Cascades, I would definitely recommend taking the bus for...
