The best beaches and the essential things to put in the bag

Bali, Cannes, Greece or Miami? All of them, I will answer. And the reason is just as simple as it looks: all of them there have beaches. And sunny weather. Therefore, that’s enough to put them on the top of my destination list with the best beaches.

But, if the location is easily set, the hardest just appear: packing (especially because I try to travel, all the time only with a hand luggage). If I could forget with no remorse about the glittery dresses and high-heels shoes, I know, for sure, that my beach bag will not leave the house without these 5 essentials: a pair of cute sunglasses, a scarf, a white shirt, a captivating book (or an iPad, for longer trips) and a bottle of water. What’s in your beach bag?

Top 6 most beautiful beaches (for me)

beach sea summer

Sanur, Bali, Indonesia. For the wildness of the beach, for the incredible colours that paint the water on sunset, for the smell of frangipani, for the little chipmunks that beg for more peanuts, for the zen mood all the day long. (How did I fell in love with Bali, HERE)

Positano, Italy. For the posh crowd. For the spectacular view I could have every day from the beach, for the limone gelato, for the pasta, for the Italian air of dolce vita.

Dubrovnik, Croatia. For the wild aspect of the unspoiled beaches and their rocky shores. For the sweet figs that grow in the trees. For the clear crystal water.

South Beach, Miami, Florida. For the sunny weather all over the year. For the amazing blue sky. For the salty air that makes my hair to follow the beauty trends. For the blueberries pancakes and coconut trees. (Read about things to see and do in Miami, HERE)

Thracian Cliffs, Bulgaria. For the feeling that Black Sea is not that one I know it for years. For the little surprises that wait around the corner (and I mean lavender fields and natural reservations). (Read about Balchik, HERE)

bulgaria thracian cliffs

Monte Carlo, Monaco. It is, for years now, the retreat I always wanted to have. For the zen feeling despite all the noise and all the crowd and all those sports cars running on the Formula 1 circuit… (Read about a beautiful restaurant HERE)
