Cala Salada, Spain

Located in the ever so popular party islands of Ibiza, the Cala Salada Beach is a popular amongst local residents, private boat owners, and tourists. White soft sand, rocky cliffs, and the clearest waters possible make it a vision of paradise. While the beach itself isn’t too big, especially when the tides are high, swimming in the turquoise waters is pretty hard to resist. Here, you can bask the day away, go cliff jumping, or simply just enjoy cooling off in its shallow waters.

The Gower Peninsula, Wales

Now I might be biased as my partner is from Wales but it seems that everyone else agrees with me as the beaches in Wales have been named as some of the best in the UK. The Gower, in particular, is a coastal cliffside paradise just a short drive away from Swansea, one of Wales’ biggest cities. Due to its size, this 19 mile-long Peninsula has a bit of everything for everyone. Long sandy beaches, waves for surfing, as well as coasteering for the adrenaline junkies who want to make the most out of their rocky natural landscape. If you have the chance, head here during the summer months and fall in love with everything this long coastal stretch can offer.

Caprera Island, Italy

Located in Sardinia, Caprera Island is another popular beachside destination to visit and rightly so as it offers some pretty stunning views. Located off the archipelago of La Maddalena, you will find Caprera Island, one of the seven large islands and many little islets which make up this magical part of Italy. Between the clear blue waters, and dreamy rocky land formations, this place is reminiscent of the Carribean. Rugged, untamed, and pristine!
