The seas surrounding the beach are notorious for their strong currents.

13. Bias Tugal, Bali

Forget the famous Kuta Beach – it’s overcrowded anyway! Even Dreamland, once known for its unmatched beauty among Indonesian beaches, has lost its idyllic magic to chain resorts and the heavy flow of tourism. And yet there are still many more beaches in Bali that deserve your wondrous awe. One of them is Bias Tugal.

Locals call it Pantai Kecil which means “Little Beach”. But do not take its name just as lightly. Waves around here can be unforgiving for non-experienced swimmers. Despite its isolated vibe, Bias Tugal is quite accessible – a mere 500-meter hike from the Padang Bai ferry terminal. At the end of this short adventure you will be greeted by fine white sand dotted with coconut trees dancing to the strong winds.

15. Bikini Beach, Uruguay

Punta del Este is not one of those places where you stop by to retreat from life. It’s where you get to live. This Uruguayan resort town is home to several beaches, all worth traveling to. And each of its famous beaches has something unique in store. The Bikini Beach in Punta del Este is by far the most popular. In fact, it lures people by the hundreds every day! Still, you should be able to find a decent space to set camp given the vastness of the beach.

16. Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman Island

It’s not really seven miles long, but who cares? Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine named it “The Caribbean’s Best Beach” – a title it very well deserves. Seven Mile is the most talked-about beach in Grand Cayman, and also the island’s most developed. Most of the island’s luxury resorts and hotels can be found here.

Despite the proliferation of resorts and hotels, there is no shortage of beach here. You can freely walk along the entire length of the shoreline – around 4.5 miles of uninterrupted, white coral sand – since it is considered public property. Long walks are not the only things you can do here though. There are some reefs located right off the shore of Seven Mile Beach. They can be found along the Government House, Marriot Hotel, and by the public beach. These small reefs provide snorkeling opportunities, although it is worth noting that the one near Marriot is an artificial reef.

You can even grill out in the open and have picnics by the beach! If you happened to tag along your pets, they can roam the sandy shores of Seven Mile Beach without any leashes. All this freedom does come with a price. You’re not allowed to play loud music or exhibit public nudity here.

17. Bird Island, Seychelles

Nature lovers, this is something you will definitely love on this list! The Bird Island of Seychelles is entrapped by white sand beaches which are decorated by smooth driftwood. Clear, indigo waters surround this breathtaking island, and yet even they abound with healthy reefs. It is a true tropical paradise fit for relaxing swims and underwater sightings.

The best part about Bird Island is… you guessed it… the birds! You can see as much as 300,000 birds of different species thriving here. Bird watching is a popular activity in the island, although it is also home to other rare species you should look out for.

The opportunities do not end here. Dolphins visit the shores of Bird Island several times throughout the year from October to December and from May to March. If you’re lucky, you can see these dolphins up-close during a dive. Endangered hawksbill sea turtles land on the ash white sands of the island every year from October to February to lay their eggs. Joining an ecotour will get you a closer look at these turtles as they lay their eggs. You will be accompanied by a local conservationist who will tell you more about these turtles’ breeding habits.

18. Anse du Gouverneur, St. Bart’s Island

A lot of travelers who go to St. Bart’s Island forgo Anse du Gouverneur for more popular beaches like Anse de Grande Saline. Truth is, there’s nothing quite like it. Some might say it is the best beach in St. Bart’s and there’s good reason for it to be placed on such high regard.

Gouverneur Beach is tucked safely in the southern end of the island, promising the tropical escape you have always wanted. The cliffs surrounding its white sandy beaches not only add to its scenic charm but give visitors a great sense of privacy. The effort it takes to get there and the lack of shade can turn away most people. But for those who do give it a chance, they will be greatly rewarded.

There are no crowds in Anse du Gouverneur – just peace and quiet. Although if you’re not used to nudity, you might break the silence with a few gasps every now and then. But you should know that going au natural is a normal part of the local beach culture. Snorkeling is possible near the beach point, and there’s a restaurant to keep you satiated during your stay. Don’t forget to bring umbrellas and a tent with you to hide from the sun!

19. Champagne Beach, Vanuatu

The waters of Champagne Beach do resemble the drink it was named after. During low tide, the shallow end of the sea fizzles and you will be left swimming in bubbly water. This remarkable phenomenon is the effect of gas escaping from the volcanic rocks on the seafloor, located off the coast of Vanuatu. It makes for a fun and otherwise ticklish swim!

The beach is characterized by shallow, clear waters that are just as calming as champagne on ice. It offers an easy swim throughout the day, even when the seas are high, all thanks to the flat sea bed. Offshore you will find the Champagne reef, home to an array of marine life including seahorses, giant crabs, lobsters, and frogfish just to name a few. The vibrant reef allows for snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities during daytime.

The white sand coast makes it difficult to walk barefoot however. Pebbles are scattered throughout the volcanic shore, and you will have to wear slippers or aquatic shoes to protect your feet. There are plenty of palm trees where you can take shade for a quick nap or a picnic. If ever you’re hungry, there is a nearby snack bar where you can grab food and refreshments. Do watch out for local vendors! It’s a great way for you to try local delicacies without leaving the beach.

20. Crane Beach, Barbados

Crane Beach isn’t for everyone. The soft, white sand coupled with strong tropical winds may be tempting. But much of it is dominated by moderately strong waves suited for experienced swimmers and body surfers. Its huge waves, heavy breeze, and palm-fringed coastline embody what a Barbados beach should be like.

Don’t be so worried if you’re a weak swimmer or if you plan on taking kids with you to the beach. There is a protected cove further along the coast. The cove softens the currents and makes the waters apt for light swimming. For body surfers, you can rent boogie boards here. The waters are safe for surfing because motorized water sports are not permitted. Crane Beach is also an ideal spot for sunset gazing.

Sadly, there are no restaurants on the beach. You will have to bring your own snacks, host a picnic, or eat from the terrace of The Crane Hotel. While the hotel offers a stunning view, you will have to splurge for the food and ambiance.

Accessibility is not a problem at all. It is a public beach that’s just a 6-minute drive from the airport and 30 minutes away from Bridgetown. Entry fees apply to non-residents, although you can get free access through the far end of the beach.

The trail weaves through Himalayan vistas, valleys, Buddhist monasteries, and villages. This trek is best for those who want to explore the Sherpa villages as well as trekkers who want to check out Mount Everest up close.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Ghorepani Poon Hill is the perfect trekking spot for beginners. The trail is relatively short and easy, weaving through verdant farmlands, thick forests, vistas, and villages.

Apart from being an easy trail, the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek also boasts of a sunrise view of the Annapurna range.

Langtang Valley Trek

The Langtang Valley is world renowned for its sprawling vegetation and picturesque villages. The trek offers an excellent view of the Langtang Ri, the Annapurnas, and Makalu! Although Langtang Valley is close to Kathmandu, the region remains untamed and full of surprises. This trekking spot is perfect for those who want to see beautiful glaciers at relatively low altitude. The valley also presents a stunning look at the mountainous regions of Nepal.

Upper Mustang

This trail is culturally and geopolitically sensitive area. It wasn’t open for trekking until the early 90s. Since then, the Upper Mustang became one of the most popular trekking spots in the region. Thanks to its remoteness, the Upper Mustang is able to maintain centuries old landscapes and culture. The trail transverses through ancient Buddhist monasteries, semi-arid desert, cliffs, and rock shelves with snowy peaks. This trail is a must-try for those who want to see the Nepalese trails at its rawest. Again, the trek requires a minimum of two trekkers and a Nepali guide or porter to secure a permit to explore this trail.

Kanchanjunga Base Camp Trek

This trail goes all the way to the world’s second highest mountain, Mount Kanchajunga. The trek boasts of the stripped down beauty of eastern Nepal. It takes travelers to the wild, mountainous regions of Nepal and its wildlife. Because the trail is very remote, you get to see the unspoiled beauty of the surrounding terrain of the region and the hardy people who inhabit it.

How to Travel Across Europe on a Tight Budget

Traveling across Europe is by no means cheap but it is possible to make your dream tour possible without breaking the bank! In today’s post, we are listing down great ways to travel across Europe on the cheap:

Take the Megabus

Taking a cab or renting a car in the UK is fairly expensive. Instead of paying for a serviced vehicle, why not take the bus? The Megabus will take you all over the UK, including England, Scotland, and Wales. You can take the Megabus if you are traveling to Paris, Amsterdam, or Brussels too! A single ticket costs as little as $1.50. Of course, you need to book ahead if you are taking popular routes for a reserved slot. For popular routes, the ticket could set you back ten bucks a piece.


Busabout is an excellent transportation service if you are heading to certain points of Europe. The beauty of this bus service is that you can get on and off anywhere within the set routes. In addition, you can buy tickets that will let you travel through all the routes within the Busabout network and stop at designated spots. For instance, you can go for the 9-day flex pass. The flex pass will let you take 9 stops from the starting city of your choice. The stops will depend on you too. A single 9-day flex pass costs about $669 USD or about $72 per trip.

Booking Via Budget Airlines

If you want to save a couple of hundred dollars on your airfare, we recommend opting for budget airlines that go around Europe. Transavia, EasyJet, Ryanair, Vueling, and RyanAirBy are some of the best budget airlines that offer trips to Europe. Just make sure to book your trip at least a month in advance to score the best deal.

Getting a Eurail Pass

A Eurotrain pass allows you to travel all over Europe in vast distances. Although you can always take a European rail, the routes are limited to shorter distances. The additional costs could add up, making for a very expensive tour. Securing a Eurotrain pass allows you to travel to different European countries on the cheap. A single pass costs about $100, which is cheaper than most public transportation services.


Eurolines is an international bus company that offers bus service to different parts of Europe. You can take the bus for long-distance travels such as Berlin to Paris, etc. The pass could set you back $248 or more, depending on your destination. The only setback to taking Eurolines is the limited legroom. A Eurolines bus is smaller compared to a train.


If you are really committed to traveling all over Europe without spending money, then your best bet is to hitchhike a ride. Hitchhiking is surprisingly common in Europe. A lot of backpackers prefer to hitchhike because they literally pay zero euros to get around the country. The only issue with hitchhiking is safety. You just can’t ensure safety if you are flagging down random strangers on the highway.

How to Plan a Cheap Group Vacation

With the economy the way it is, people are planning vacations on a tighter budget. They are more careful in spending their hard-earned money. One way to get more vacation for less money is by traveling with others. Whether it is a large group or just a few friends, you can save money by pooling your resources.

However, for all of the benefits, there can also be a downside in traveling with more people. You have more personalities and more opinions and more people to please. There is a way to plan a group vacation and make everyone happy and to come home with a few dollars left in your pocket.

The first thing in planning a group vacation is to have a meeting with everyone together. Find out what everyone is expecting in this vacation. Is it supposed to be relaxing or a lot of sightseeing? Do they want to get away from it all or be in the center of everything? It would be easiest to appoint one person to be the vacation planner and they can delegate tasks to others if they choose. The planner needs to ask the questions and take notes for when they are making reservations later.

The vacation planner also needs to find out what everyone requires in accommodations, cost, what their budget is, any tourist attractions they want to see and anything else that is important to them on a vacation. It’s at this stage that everyone must decide if their ideas are compatible with each other. Not everyone can travel well together and you don’t want them to be unhappy during the trip.

Planning a vacation yourself can take a lot of time so it would be easier if another person is responsible for handling the travel arrangements. They would rent a car or get airline tickets, depending on where you are going. It could also include getting passes for trains or other transportation. To save the most money on travel, you have to watch several websites and wait for the prices to get to what you are willing to pay. The popular travel websites like Expedia and Orbitz are great for travel bargains, but sometimes the airlines and rental places have deals that aren’t listed and they can end up being cheaper.

To find accommodations, the best places to look are the tourism websites for the place you are going. You might also consider looking at official websites that are geared more towards people who live there. You can find places that are not as popular with tourists but still good locations that will be cheaper. This is also where you will find destinations that don’t rate as high on the tourist websites but would save you money.

If you are willing to travel a little farther to the tourist attractions, you can find some great bargain places. For instance, Nassau is the place everyone thinks of vacationing in the Bahamas but there are a lot of small islands where you can stay that don’t cost as much.

When getting tickets for tourist attractions, it’s often cheaper to get them before you leave on vacation, especially if they might sell out when you want to go. One thing to find out is if the ticket is for a specific time or good for use any time while you are there. Some people don’t like to have a tight schedule on vacation. If they are open tickets, it would be helpful to purchase them ahead of time. However, if they are for a specific time, like show tickets or boat excursions, you might want to let everyone get their own once they’ve arrived. Plans often change after getting to your destination and discovering there are other things to do.

Before leaving for your trip, you will want to discuss everyone’s expectations for the vacation. Will everyone be expected to check in or will they come and go as they please? Will certain people be traveling together or everyone doing their own thing? This isn’t too important if you are staying in one place the whole time, but if you’re visiting different areas and changing accommodations, you will need to know. You don’t want the group getting upset because someone is late or doesn’t show up. And if you’re staying in a location that might not be as safe, you want to know if people will be traveling together or going out alone. And while you don’t like to think of bad things happening, you want to have a plan of action if someone isn’t seen for a certain amount of time.

If traveling out of the United States, you will also want to find out if everyone has international cell phones and if they will work in the location where you’re going. A little extra planning ahead of time can make for a carefree vacation.

Traveling with a group can be fun and save a lot of money but there are special considerations that must be thought of to make the vacation enjoyable for everyone. If it is organized, it can become the preferred way to travel and provide a lot of great memories.
