It’s summer, and for Southeast Asia, it is also the low season. You know what that means? Some of the region’s most magical beach destinations are empty! That’s right; imagine having the whole tropical beach to yourself! These are some of the world’s best, complete with soft sands, blue waters, dive sites, tasty seafood and warm weather. So, let’s get to some of the best beach and island destinations out there.
Ngapali – Myanmar is certainly an unknown country for many, including its beaches. That is all about to change. This is as quiet and rustic as you’re going to get in terms of tropical beach getaway. If you’re looking to stray away from the masses, coming here is a sure way to accomplish that.
Sihanoukville – This is Cambodia’s most popular beach resort – and with good reason. It is hard to argue against the waters and sand. What also seperates this from other destinations is its close proximity to a national park and its sleepy rural ambiance.
Kep – Overshadowed by Sihanoukville in terms of popularity but not in terms of idyllic and beauty, Kep is fast becoming a favorite destination for visitors and locals alike. The one seling point here is the Kampot Pepper Crab, freshly caught from the sea with the spice provided by the nearby world class pepper farms.
Hua Hin – Thailand’s quiet mainland beach destination near Bangkok. One of the King’s palaces is here, a beach home if you will. Step into Hua Hin and immediately feel the soothing and relaxing air that seems to be circulating throughout the resort town.
Koh Jum – This island offers everything a beach paradise offers, in particular, limestone karsts that majestically spring out of the turquoise waters. To make matters better, development is almost non-existent here, guaranteeing peace and privacy.
Phu Quoc – Vietnam’s best island escape. It has everything one needs for relaxation such as the ocean and sand as well as the active individuals such as dive sites and lush jungles for trekking.
Bali – What else can be said about the island of the Gods? In addition to sea and sand of various types, the island’s got volcanoes, mountains, lush jungles and exotic cultures to experience.
These are just the tip of the iceberg (or seaberg if you will, in keeping with the summer theme) in terms of amazing beach paradises. For more, just look into our Sun Sea, and Sand Tours.
