Añasco Beach – Puerto Rico

Rating: Just outside the town of Añasco lies this peaceful tropical beach. There are no facilities awaiting for you here, but if relax away from crowds is what you’re looking for, then this beach is perfect for you. Water is usually calm and hence good for swimming. The tropical environment is really suggestive (perfect environment for great pictures) and offers a good location for a day at the beach to relax, near to both Rincon and Añasco, but far away from crowds. Suggested to families and couples. Tweet This Post

Domes Beach – Rincon – Puerto Rico

Rating: A 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 [ ... ]

Harbor Beach in Baska (Island of Krk)

Rating: This small pebble beach lies right next to the harbor in the town of Baska in the island of Krk. It is a good alternative to Vela Plaza and not too far from it either. Water is usually clear and calm, thus making a good candidate setting for swimmers (and sunbathers alike). The proximity with the harbor, although not a busy one, can cause some disturbance on the water on those days when currents are adverse; never too much of a problem though. Just as Vela Plaza, this little beach can also get crowded, so that it’s suggested that [ ... ]

Malta – Azure Window – Dwejra Bay, Gozo

Rating: Rather than talking about about a bay, it’s probably more appropriate to refer about an area here. Within close distance you have in fact a chance of both enjoying a magnificent natural setting provided by a natural arch and surrounding rocks, forming a natural pool and other interesting formations, as well as sunbathing, swimming or snorkeling in the so-called azure window. Actually the so-called “beach” wouldn’t be nothing spectacular, if not for the natural hole in the rocks forming a cave interconnecting this natural pool with the sea. It’s a quite cool experience to swim/snorkel/dive into it, even if [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Anchor Bay

Rating: Anchor Bay is a small bay located approximately one km west of the village of Mellieha, which was named after the countless anchors which have been found in the bay. Nowadays it’s mostly known for Popeye Village, which was used as the set for the 1980 Hollywood musical Popeye, starring Robin Williams as Popeye. The bay itself is quite isolated and not very popular, either with locals or tourists. Water is clear though and sea conditions are usually adequate for swimming. It’s an even better location for divers, because of the many caves. Although not famous for it, it might [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Blue Lagoon, Comino

Rating: On the Island of Comino you can find the sheltered inlet known as the “Blue Lagoon”, whose stunning blue waters have transformed it into one of Malta’s premier attractions. It can be reached by boat only, either from Gozo or Malta. It’s suggested to get there early, as the place becomes VERY busy with tourists during the later hours of the day. Tweet This Post

Malta Beaches – Ghajn Tuffieha Bay

Rating: Ghajn Tuffieha is Golden Bay’s sister beach. It’s in fact also located in the north-western part of the island, just a couple hundred meters away from it. It’s easy to be reached, but not so to be accessed, since there’s quite a lot of climb down to do (over 100 steps). It’s popular among couples and young people, local and tourists alike. Please note that, although such practice is technically illegal in Malta, there might be nude sunbathers sometimes. It’s usually not as crowded as its sister, but nevertheless it also offers certain facilities (cafe, restaurant). A cold drink [ ... ]

Malta Beaches – Ghar Lapsi

Rating: Għar Lapsi (meaning Ascension Cave) is a small rocky bay, located close to Dingli, 1 km north-west of the Blue Grotto. Here it’s possible to swim within a sheltered rocky inlet (basically a natural swimming pool), which, on calm water days, is actually also a great place to snorkel or for diving practitioners. There’s no real beach there, but it’s possible to sunbathe on the concrete terraces surrounding the inlet. There are a bar (also serving sandwiches and hot dishes) and a bigger restaurant nearby.

Malta Beaches – Ramla Bay in Gozo

Rating: Ramla Bay (Ir-Ramla il-Ħamra in Maltese) is a sandy beach, located on the north-eastern side of Gozo, one of the three Maltese islands. Its sand features a distinctive golden-reddish tint, from which it’s inherited its name. The beach is very popular with both Maltese residents and tourists, and can be reached by either car or bus. It’s ideal for sunbathing and swimming, but it’s wide enough that some beach sport activities can be performed as well (it’s indeed suitable for families). It’s easy to be accessed (even though you have to expect to walk a little, or rely on [ ... ]
