With fall fast approaching, it already has me thinking about this winter and what is to come…grey and rainy days. That is not exactly exciting to me but the thought of venturing somewhere new, warm and by the beach is much more enticing. Click the read more for why you should plan a beach getaway this fall/winter and some great places that you could go to.
Taking a trip in the winter is a great way to escape and get a bit of time away from work, the weather and really would be a great opportunity for you to recharge, energize and relax. Plus, a little vitamin D is good for you and have you ever complained about going to the beach? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t.
With that said, I have researched two great places that could be your beach getaway dream come true for this fall or winter.
1. Tulum, Mexico. Known for amazing beaches with crystal clear blue water and the Mayan ruins, this definitely is a place worth escaping to. Where to Stay: If you are looking for somewhere by the beach and a little bit more luxurious, I would recommend staying at the Playa Canek. The Playa Canek is located right on the beach of Tulum where you can hang on a hammock while enjoying the stunning views or snack on some delicious food at their restaurant or go into the town center 10 minutes by car. They also offer airport shuttle, a garden and a terrace, plus water sport facilities on site. For a more budget friendly option, I would recommend staying at Pacha Tulum B&B. They are located 500 meters from the center of Tulum, 5 minutes by bike from archaeological site of Tulum and 15 minutes from the beach. All of the rooms offer, wi-fi, air-conditioning, private bathroom, safety deposit boxes and ceiling fan. Breakfast is included and they offer bike rentals and tours.
2. North Shore, Oahu. Known for great surfing and laid back island time lifestyle. Where to Stay: If you are looking to stay away from the touristy area and among the locals, I`d recommend staying at this cozy studio apartment from AirBnB. The apartment is located few steps to Famous Sunset Beach and across the street from Ted’s Bakery with the best Haupia Cake of the Island.
Have you gone on any vacations during the fall or winter and if so where?
