Needing an escape from the cold? Pack your bags and head to one of these tropical destinations.
The Maldives are ideal for those looking for a serene beach vacation with clear blue waters and fresh air. This beautiful vacation destination is a honeymoon hot spot where visitors can swim with whale sharks, manta rays, and through coral reefs. There are dozens of luxury resort and fine dining experiences in the Maldives. Enjoy some champagne on the white sand beaches in your favorite Minimale Animale bikini before grabbing dinner at sunset. Another perk — The Maldives are home to bioluminescent phytoplankton that live in the waters at Vaadhoo Island. These phytoplankton emit a bright blue glow in the dark.
Cayo Espanto, Belize
This privately owned island features a five-star resort. The island is about three miles off the coast of San Pedro, Belize. The all inclusive resort is a perfect island get away for those of you looking for a luxury retreat on beautiful, secluded beach. Catamaran during the day or take yacht tours, get a massage on the beach, or enjoy a tropical picnic on the island in your Mikoh bikini and a boater hat from Lack of Color.
Turks and Caicos
White sand beaches and blue waters are one of the main appeals about Turks and Caicos. Swim with the dolphins, swim through coral gardens, or go island hopping in your favorite Tory Burch sandals in search of the best Pina colada. Enjoy temperatures between 80 and 85 degrees throughout the winter months.
Spend an afternoon at Ulun Danu Temple or look over lush jungles and beautiful waterfalls at Ubud. Lounge at chic sunset bars or do yoga by the water. Bali is famous for it’s gorgeous vegetation, suspended infinity pools, and dense jungles. If you need a tropical escape, this is your go to!
If the idea of basking on a sunny beach somewhere in Exuma with pigs swimming in the water beside you sounds appetizing, book your trip to the Bahamas. Visiting the Bahamas means experiencing Atlantis, kayaking through the crystal clear waters of Andros, and experiencing some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Visiting the Carribean during winter means missing hurricane season during the summer months and the likelihood of having a temperature somewhere between 70 and 85 degrees upon arrival.
