Very relaxing but honestly not a very beautiful beach. Especially for Southern California beaches. People were very friendly yet we also saw a few homelss people right under the Pier (at the stairs towards the beach). Also a few of the "Lime" electric bikes were not working. We tried 2 and both were under maintenance, or not working. We had a short walk along the beach and the shops. No shop was special enough for us to sit down for desserts and coffee. Just a normal local beach town.
Despite the garment's initial success in France, women worldwide continued to wear traditional one-piece swimsuits. When his sales stalled, Réard went back to designing and selling orthodox knickers.[67] In 1950, American swimsuit mogul Fred Cole,[38] owner of mass market swimwear firm Cole of California, told Time that he had "little but scorn for France's famed Bikinis."[68] Réard himself would later describe it as a "two-piece bathing suit which reveals everything about a girl except for her mother's maiden name."[69] Fashion magazine Modern Girl Magazine in 1957 stated that "it is hardly necessary to waste words over the so-called bikini since it is inconceivable that any girl with tact and decency would ever wear such a thing".[9][38]
While you will need a respectable budget, if you give Bermuda a chance you’ll find an island home to some of the most beautiful beaches in all of North America and the Caribbean. The locals are incredibly friendly people and you can find some world-class food here too. To keep you busy, there is tons of snorkeling, some caves to explore, lots of hiking, and tons more!
As bikinis leave most of the body exposed to potentially dangerous UV radiation, overexposure can cause sunburn, skin cancer, as well as other acute and chronic health effects on the skin, eyes, and immune system.[250] As a result, medical organizations recommend that bikini wearers protect themselves from UV radiation by using broad-spectrum sunscreen, which has been shown to protect against sunburn, skin cancer,[251] wrinkling and sagging skin.[252] Certain sunscreen ingredients can cause harm if they penetrate the skin over time.[253]
The Bahamas is a coral archipelago with 700 islands and more than 2000 cays scattered over 100,000 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean, about 50 miles off the coast of Florida. The population of the Islands range from deserted to packed, and the most visited are Grand Bahama and Paradise Island. Home to the Andros Barrier Reef, the Bahamas are a scuba divers paradise and some of the best tropical islands to visit in the Caribbean.
Raquel Welch's fur bikini in One Million Years B.C. (1966) gave the world the most iconic bikini shot of all time and the poster image became an iconic moment in cinema history.[101] Her deer skin bikini in One Million Years B.C., advertised as "mankind's first bikini",[102] (1966) was later described as a "definitive look of the 1960s".[103] Her role wearing the leather bikini raised Welch to a fashion icon[9] and the photo of her in the bikini became a best-selling pinup poster.[103]
The 1967 film An Evening in Paris is mostly remembered because it featured Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore as the first Indian actress to wear a bikini on film.[114][115] She also posed in a bikini for the glossy Filmfare magazine.[116][117] The costume shocked a conservative Indian audience,[118] but it also set in motion a trend carried forward by Zeenat Aman in Heera Panna (1973) and Qurbani (1980),[119] Dimple Kapadia in Bobby (1973),[119] and Parveen Babi in Yeh Nazdeekiyan (1982).[119][120]
Aruba is a small island — just 19.6 miles long — and boasts ideal temperatures year round, thanks to the constant trade winds (which helps with the humidity and limits the annoyance of mosquitoes). When travel to other islands in the Caribbean is dicey, Aruba is the optimal choice because it is located in the Netherland Antilles, outside of the hurricane belt.

Almost all of the Earth's islands are natural and have been formed by tectonic forces or volcanic eruptions. However, artificial (man-made) islands also exist, such as the island in Osaka Bay off the Japanese island of Honshu, on which Kansai International Airport is located. Artificial islands can be built using natural materials (e.g., earth, rock, or sand) or artificial ones (e.g., concrete slabs or recycled waste).[14][15] Sometimes natural islands are artificially enlarged, such as Vasilyevsky Island in the Russian city of St. Petersburg, which had its western shore extended westward by some 0.5 km in the construction of the Passenger Port of St. Petersburg.[16]

Culebra Island is beautiful. I just got back to Canada from Puerto Rico. I was there for a month. I loved Culebra so much I went back twice. On my second trip I spent two nights camping at Playa Flamenco. I paid $20 USD per night for a sweet little camping spot (section E). I saw turtles, amazing, colourful fish and met some wonderful people. The snorkelling was okay in terms of being able to see under water but the reefs are not healthy. There was plenty of coconut to pick to drink the water inside and eat the meat. I found passion fruit, mangoes (not ripe), almonds (not ripe) and another really weird looking fruit I don’t know the name of. While I didn’t enjoy the main island of Puerto Rico as much as I’d hoped, I would go back to Culebra if the opportunity ever arose. I made some friends (Perri and Hector–owners) at a little place in town called, “Aqui Me Quedo” who I will never forget their kindness and hospitality.
Beyond this, it is important to remember that the aquatic sights are pretty similar across all of the Galapagos snorkeling sites. Some of the snorkeling sites can be explored on land tours, while others can only be explored on half or full-day yacht tours. There isn’t a single itinerary that can include every single snorkeling site in the Galapagos– there are in fact many hundreds of options – nor is there a definitive list of the top ten snorkeling spots in the Galapagos. In a nutshell: there are nearly a hundred magnificent sites where you could snorkel!

Full buyout of this uber-luxe, beyond-chic private isle includes all 24 villas for a maximum of 72 guests -- perfect for that simple little destination wedding you've been planning with your fiancé, Richard Branson. (Then again, you’d probably just get married on HIS private island, Necker Island, in the BVI.) The good news is that this rate is all-inclusive of accommodations, meals, beverages, a welcome spa treatment for each guest, most activities (including a submarine excursion!), golf, etc. The only thing it does not include are transfers from the Nadi airport, select off-island activities, additional spa treatments, and your soul. 
Due in part to its sometimes inhospitable weather (high winds, cold weather and fog), the area was largely undeveloped throughout most of San Francisco's early history, when it was known as part of the "Outside Lands." Development finally came in the late-19th century: a steam railroad was in place by 1884 to bring people to the first amusement ride at the city’s oceanside, a "Gravity Railroad" roller coaster, and to the Ocean Beach Pavilion for concerts and dancing. By 1890, trolley lines reached Ocean Beach: the Ferries and Cliff House Railroad, Park & Ocean Railroad, and Sutro Railroad that encouraged commercial amusement development as a trolley park.[6] The Cliff House, which opened in 1863, and Sutro Baths, which opened in 1896, drew thousands of visitors.[7]

Though no dinosaurs are to be found, there is no escaping the enchanting feeling that Nuku Hiva, in the super remote Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia – resembles Jurassic Park. Maybe it’s the fact that there’s hardly anyone around, or maybe it’s the fact that you thought such incredible natural beauty only existed in Hollywood productions – Nuku Hiva is dramatically beautiful beyond imagination. The few visitors who make the long journey to Nuku Hiva will spend their days hiking to hidden waterfalls and secluded beaches, exploring the island’s ancient temples and natural wonders by 4X4, horseback or small boats, and meet the proud local Marquesans – whose rich history has developed over centuries of isolation.
thank you for the interesting top 10 list. I am a digital nomad myself. The last 6 months I have been travelling and working from different places: 2 months Barcelona, 2 months Turkey and the rest of the time in Germany, mostly in Berlin. Now heading to Ko Phangan for a couple of months, your number 1. My working colleague lives in Oaxaca, your number 2. So it was funny to see :). I can add that apart from that Turkey could be also a great destination for a digital nomads. The people are extremely friendly, cheap food, hospitality, chai, sweets, hotels and guesthouses are very inexpensive. A good alternative for those who stayed 3 months in the EU and need to go out. The nature around Bodrum and Antalya is just amazing, you have sea, you have mountains, you have orange and lemon trees. Especially Antalya has impressed me by the beautiful old town Kaleici. All in all, amazing, modern and very dynamic country.
1. This is one of my favorite spots in the city to relax and run! Running on Ocean Beach bare foot is a wonderful exercise. The smooth sand stimulates all the nervous and muscles on your feet and legs. 2. A big space for group activities. If you plan to use the fire pit, definitely get there early to get one. I haven't had the need to use one yet, but they are always occupied whenever I am there, especially on weekends. 3. Best place to see the sunset and ocean waves in the city. Many surfers like to surf here because of the waves and it is easily accessible. 4. You get to see many species of seabirds including cormorant and pelican. The beach is usually clean and many critters such as jellyfish and sand dollar can be found on the beach.

The skirt of the diving mask attached to the snorkel is made of rubber, or latterly silicone. Older-generation snorkel masks come with a single oval, round or triangular lens retained by a metal clamp in a groove within the body of the mask. An adjustable head strap or harness ensures a snug fit on the wearer's face. The body of a mask with full-face coverage is fitted with a chinpiece to enable a complete leaktight enclosure of the mouth.
It’s easy for visitors to equate paradise with the thousand islands that make up the Maldives. Incredibly, each of the 90 resorts in the Maldives is situated on its own island.

EvThis beautiful island is by far the most popular holiday destination in Indonesia. It combines fine sandy beaches, powerful surf, exotic temples, luxurious palaces, miles of verdant rice fields and stunningly beautiful nature. If you get tired of lying on pristine beaches or diving colorful reefs, go inland and visit huge volcanoes and untouched jungles, or pay respect at the Cliffside Uluwatu Temple. Bali resorts are world famous for their opulence and luxury.

Panama is an underrated destination in Central America, including the San Blas Islands. This is a popular spot for sailing and boat tours, though there are also some resorts in case you’re looking for a more luxurious stay. Generally, the islands are quite rustic and make for a great off-the-grid island getaway. There are tons of beautiful spots for good sailing, diving, and snorkeling.
I came across this article by accident & I was really glad to see Koh Phangan at first place. I’ve been going to Koh Phangan for the last 10 years & I was there for 6 months last year. I rented a gorgeous bungolow in jungle for 200$ per month (all inclusive including internet) & a scooter for 50$ per month. It is really a magical place, and definitely a digital nomad heaven.

Bora Bora is defintely in the running for most beautiful island paradise in the world. You can reach the island in just under an hour flight from the main island of Tahiti. When you see the beautiful turquoise waters and swaying palm trees, you’ll know you’re in the right spot for serious relaxation. Bora Bora is lush and tropical with perfect white-sand beaches and emerald waters teaming with colorful fish. Luxury resorts and spas dot the island with overwater bungalows and thatched-roof villas, making it the island of your dreams.
