My favorite​ Beaches on The Atlantic

Ocean and sea beaches have always been a weakness for me. Spending the day with family on a beautiful beach feels bliss to me. Here are some of my favorite beaches on the Atlantic Ocean.

Charleston Folly Beach-

We would never get bored in Charleston. Each time we visit there we find something new to do, something new to explore and also the same old landmarks would feel more entertaining than ever. Among the other parts of Charleston, Folly Beach in South Carolina is very popular for surfing, fishing, kayaking, and other water activities. Family- friendly and eye-pleasing beautiful shoreline will definitely worth for the ultimate beach vacation. More to that, the historic downtown of Charleston and the comfort southern food, yum, both are definitely worth to try on. Our most favorite is Griffon’s famous fish and chips.

South Beach Miami-

One of the most happening beaches, the food, the people, the fashion, the drinks, the music, the ambiance, glittering nightlife, everything is absolutely great there. Of course, because it’s Miami. We had the most amazing time there. One of the best scenic, relaxing, energetic place I have ever visited. Famous for one of the most trendy beach destinations, South Beach Florida is definitely a fun place to visit.

North Myrtle Beach-

I would say Myrtle Beach is a great family vacation spot. Located in South Carolina, it’s one of our favorite. My kids love to go there, we love to go there. If you want to enjoy a complete vacation package where you can spend time in beaches, then go to fishing, kayaking, stroll on the nature trails and then shop at the nearby Tanger outlet mall, then you will get everything of these and much more in there, in Myrtle Beach.

 

Hilton Head Island-

Famous for the pristine beaches, the golf courses, and other outdoor water activities, Hilton Head Island is a very beautiful and a peaceful place to visit. Comfortable accommodation and a very restful place. We went there in the late November, so luckily we could see the amazing festive decor and also, there was a festive event, where fully decorated and different theme based Christmas Trees were displaying to sell, which was a bonus experience for us.

Loved every moment while we were there, and definitely would like to go again to find that tranquility.

Nags Head, NC Outer banks-

Nags Head is one of the best places to experience the North Carolina Outer Banks vacation. One of the beautiful sunsets I ever have seen was at the Jockey’s Ridge State Park, the largest sand dune on East Coast. The panoramic view of the sound, ocean and surrounding towns are honestly breathtaking. We have enjoyed one of our best summer days while we were there.

Daytona Beach-

Definitely, a fun place to visit with family. Loved the driving on the beach, lots of beach activities are available on Daytona. We always make a stop there, while we are visiting Florida. And if you are a fan of racing then you have to go to Daytona International Speedway complex to experience the ultimate NASCAR racing.

Enjoy the summer days.

Andaman Islands- Hidden Gems of India

Surrounded by the Indian Ocean and dense mangrove forests, far from the hustle and bustle of the cities, about 850 miles east of the Indian subcontinent, you will find Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Along with the crystal clear water, white sandy beaches and green serene view, Andaman is an ideal location for tourists who want a tranquil and reviving vacay. From hills, rivers to valleys, from forest to blue coastlines, beautiful breathtaking views are to be found everywhere.

Andaman has more than 300 small islands, only some of them are inhabited. The three major islands are North Andaman, Middle Andaman, and South Andaman—closely positioned and collectively known as the Great Andaman. Of the two ways to reach there, by air and by ships, we opted for air from Kolkata to Port Blair, the capital town of Andamans. After staying a few days in Port Blair we took a ferry ride to the famous Havelock Island. Havelock island has one of India’s prettiest beach stretches. Our beachfront resort had a private beach access. The moment I stepped on the beach, I felt smooth white sands under my feet.

I was in awe, I was surrounded by the lush tropical trees and in front of me was the endless blue horizon. Havelock island is one of the popular tourists’ destinations, famous for pristine coastlines and luxurious hotels and restaurants.                                          Next, we visited the Long Island, famous for snorkeling and scuba diving. The Andaman Islands are a world-class destination for scuba diving, and the area around Long Island has some of the best dive sites in the Andamans. Since I don’t know swimming, I was very scared to go. Then I found an efficient snorkel guide, who was very helpful, after a couple of shaky trials, and then I was able to see Andaman’s marine life, so many colors, full of corals, colorful small fishes in batches, it was unbelievable, almost dreamlike, I was floating away with the fishes in the colorful water kingdom.

The next day, we visited Little Andaman, the best surfing destination in India. We missed their famous elephant safari. Andaman is full of surprises, away from the mainland, where you can find isolated beaches and if your adventure mind wants something exciting, then you can choose any kind of activity like water sports, fishing, beachside camping, trekking, sea walking, mangrove creek safari, bird watching and many other fun activities. Besides the snorkeling, another interesting discovery for me was to meet with Jarawa, one of the primeval tribes, they are quite popular among the tourists. Like most tribal peoples, Jarawa also live self-sufficiently on their ancestral Jarwas are believed to have lived in Andamans islands for up to 55.000 years. We had to travel quite a distance just to take a glance of them.

Our next destination was Baratang Islands, where we visited the limestone caves and the mud volcano.

In the last couple of days of our trip, we stayed again in Port Blair. Port Blair is the capital of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, famous for many historical sights. The Cellular Jail is the main historic attractions in Port Blair. It is a National Memorial of India. We attended their popular light and sound show in the Central Jail. The show narrates the saga of the Indian freedom struggle.

It was a great trip, away from cities, relaxing on the white sand beach, watching the magnificent sunsets, snorkeling, the red snapper and crab feast, adventurous trekking, the mad ferry ride on the Indian Ocean, Cellular Jail, wow, we had spent almost 2 weeks there, but it seems not enough, we have to go there again,there is much more to discover, much to see, much to experience, again to the Andamans.
