Domes Beach – Rincon – Puerto Rico

Rating: ★★★★½

Domes Beach, Rincon, Puerto RicoA very popular beach among surfers (and boogie-boarders alike) is Domes Beach, which owes its name to the nearby hemispherical facility, very visible from the beach. Once the designated land for this nuclear reactor built in the 1960s by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, it is now a main surfer morning attraction. Due to moderate current, some rocks and sea urchins it is probably not the best place for swimming or snorkeling. If you’re into whatever kind of activity related to good surf though, this one is definitely the beach for you. There are no bathrooms or other facilties on the beach, but the lighthouse and its bar are within walking distance, contributing to creating an even more interesting environment. Just bring your bug spray, some drinks and snacks and you’ll have fun.

Malta Beaches – Golden Bay

Rating: ★★★★½

Golden Bay Sandy BeachGolden Bay’s of the most popular Sandy beaches of Malta. It’s located in the north-western part of the island, overlooked by the Radisson Blu hotel complex. It’s popular among families, but also couples or tourist groups. It’s very easy to be reached and accessed, and offers all the facilities you might need (cafe, restaurant, umbrella/water sport hire) for a day full of fun at the beach. It’s usually safe for swimming (thanks also to the common safe buoys, very common in all Malta beaches), but it is prone to strong currents when the wind blows from the north-west. A red flag indicates when sea is rough and it’s better to stay in the shallow waters only. A little bit of action in the sea could be fun if you like do body-surf or do some boogie boarding though; swell can get decent in those conditions.
