Best Beaches Worldwide


All continents and many countries have their best beaches, and every region of the planet has some features that distinguish the beaches of others in other regions.

For example, the beaches of France are known for their glamor and the presence of the jet set, the beaches of Brazil for its wildness and natural beauty of the Caribbean for its clear water and warm, the beaches of Mexico for being immersed in Mexican culture or the beaches of Thailand for having unique natural landscapes
.

As you can see in our Ranking of beaches, we investigated the best beaches in every continent on the planet and we have ranked the best beaches in each of them. No doubt there are several factors that weigh in choosing the best beaches in the world, here
have we highlighted the following:

The beauty: a concept that encompasses the water (clarity, color, temperature, etc.). Sand (type, color); the landscape around the beach (mountains, palm trees, rocks, etc.).. For example, Fernando de Noronha, Brazil, which is undoubtedly one of the best Brazilian beaches, offers an excellent combination of these three concepts.

- Infrastructure: quality hotels, nightlife, flights, etc.. This is an ambiguous concept, as if seeking a desolate beach and quiet, good infrastructure is just that there are no hotels or nightlife.

But in terms of
good infrastructure in the classical sense, the beaches of France, the beaches of Italy and especially the beaches of Spain are noted for their nightlife, glamorous hotels and refinement of its casinos.


The population of the beach: the people who inhabit the beach can make a normal beach becomes one of the best beaches in the world and vice versa. We speak here of sympathy, grace, good manners, and so on. The joy of jaimacans, for example, makes the beaches of Jamaica in a place of constant fun.

- Features: Some beaches in the world are unique and unique items that stand out above the rest. Thus, the beaches of French Polynesia with its very famous bungalows on the Sea, or the beaches of Greece and its architecture ancantilados white on breaking on the beach are unmistakable post when choosing a beach destination in the world.

Can also be classified according to the activity beaches in them has been much development. Thus we also have in relation to clothing or nude beaches topless beaches. Or as the favorite sport of each find beaches for diving, snorkeling beaches, beaches for windsurfing and kitesurfing.

But this is theory, the reality means that when vacationing, there is nothing better than relaxing and enjoying the breeze by the water of a spectacular beach.

Time Square in New York


Times Square is a major intersection in Manhattan (New York). Located on the corner of Broadway and Seventh Avenue. The Times Square area is formed by the blocks located between Sixth Avenue and Eighth avenues that form the western part of the central business district of Manhattan.

Dominicans Choose Cruises

Despite its many advantages and the boom that has gained in recent years, cruise tourism has failed to displace other forms of vacationing abroad. Why? For although several cruises play the Dominican coast, none has the country as a port.

"The cruise will become part of the holiday air because you are required to hop on a plane to take the cruise, " says Jochy Mella, president of TravelNet travel agency, which represents five cruise lines.

The need to combine the cruise with a flight "increases costs, " says Mella, but clarifies that clients can lower their rental if they book in advance.

"It depends on how you planifiques" said Mella. "If you buy the last minute cruise may cost you more, but if you take advantage of discounts while shopping. "

To take advantage of early bids, recommend booking up to a year earlier. Some lines have plans that allow customers to recover one hundred percent of their money if they cancel the trip for good cause or up to 70 percent for unjustified reasons.

Factors such as the route of the modern cruise ship also affect the price.

Cruise Holidays Benefits:
