Beach Vacation Vs Adventure Holiday: You Decide.

Ultimately, people go on vacation to get a break from their stressful, daily routine. However, that break can vary from person to person. Someone whose job keeps them constantly on their feet and running from one place to another might relish the idea of lying on a beach, or poolside, and be doing nothing for two whole weeks. Others might be stuck behind a desk for around 40 hours per week, so they might prefer to be more active during their time away; they might indulge in water sports, hiking, sightseeing, or any other opportunity to stretch their legs and see something other than a cubicle for a change. Regardless of your preference, here are a few ideas for a beach or adventure holiday to inspire you.

Hawaii, USA

Anyone looking for a luxurious beach holiday should always have Hawaii at the top of their list. The temperature remains relatively steady throughout the year, the sun shines almost every day, and the cool breeze makes this island a true paradise. Whether you stay in cheap accommodation, or you check into a resort for a more luxurious place to stay, you’ll likely never be too far from one of Hawaii’s many beaches and lush scenery. You can choose to take part in a water activity, such as surfing, boogie boarding, scuba diving, or a sailing tour, or you can book yourself a massage and allow yourself to truly relax in these serene surroundings.

Minnesota, USA

Who said you can’t combine relaxation and adventure? Minnesota, also known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” is both a backpacker’s paradise and a hotspot for nature lovers. While there are plenty of places to camp in the woods, you could also check out for a rustic vacation. Water lovers should visit the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness at the northeastern tip of Minnesota for a truly rural getaway. This is a place where people cook over fires instead of ovens, they paddle across the lake instead of taking a motorboat, and they surrender their headphones to listen to the sound of nature.

Koh Samui, Thailand

Koh Samui is also known as the island of healing; there are many spas and retreats for visitors to relax and replenish their energy. The Anantara Spa, found in Chaweng Beach or Bophut, uses a special blend of oils in its spa treatments to promote healing and well-being in the body. There are also several yoga retreats to soothe aching muscles and calm busy minds. Couples can choose to unwind together by booking a sensual couple’s massage in one of the many spas.

Safari, South Africa

Whether you go to Kruger Park or one of the many bush camps in Zambia, there is nothing like waking up and being surrounded by natural safari wildlife. Many bush camps offer safari walks where you can see elephants, buffalo, or even lions up close. At the end of the day, you can share your adventures with other travellers, or chill out in a luxurious tent.

  1. Even though my work keeps me active, I still prefer adventure holidays. There’s so much to see and do in a place and I feel that by lounging around I won’t be able to witness or be part of it. But to each his/her own. 🙂

  2. I consider myself a traveller, as I do not exactly take holidays from anything or anywhere. Perhaps it is an age thing, the working masses might ‘need’ to get away from the job which could be a beach or adventure locale. It is my hope that everyone has the the chance to travel just because rather than be in need of getting away.
