Although February and winter is one of my favorite times of the year, it’s still hard not to daydream about sunny paradise islands with golden beaches. For this Wanderlust Wednesday I’m sharing 6 destinations where I wouldn’t mind spending the whole day soaking up the sun on a sandy beach or by the pool.
The Tanzanian islands is an amazing tropical paradise, which is a favorite of many European countries. The weather here is incredibly reliable and the vibe is super exotic and relaxed.
If you want sandy beaches but also incredible adventures, Borneo is the place for you. The islands belongs to the three countries Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei, and especially the Brunei part of worth discovering. Here you can explore the city of Kuching, hike up Mount Kinabalu, experience the amazing wildlife, or simply soak up the sun on the beach.
The ultimate sunshine island has always been and will always be Hawaii. A favorite of Elvis’, Hawaii offers beautiful sandy beaches such as Waikiki Beach, the bustling capital of Oahu, and of course breathtaking views of the volcanic titans of Kilauea and Mauna Loa. What’s not to love?
Being one of the Caribbean’s most popular places, St Lucia offer beautiful sandy beaches, perfect temperatures in the dry season from December through May, and great hikes.
Although usually associated with flashy lights and drunk people, Lanzarote on the Canary Islands is slowly starting to turn into an upmarket destination with eco-friendly places, biking, wine tasting, and surfing.
When picking destinations for this post, it was simply too hard to find one specific paradise island in Thailand to feature, so I decided just to pick Thailand. Whether you’re looking for a local experience, a great place for night life, perfect beaches, great shopping, amazing nature, awesome adventure activities, or somewhere cheap, you’re guaranteed an island that suits your preferences.
Where are you dreaming about escaping to this winter?
