On to the beach! With rushing waves and lying on warm sand, while looking in the blue sky. A cool drink within easy reach. For many this is the dream holiday experience.
In summer it is not difficult to reach the nearest beach. Whether it’s the Baltic Sea, North Sea or Mediterranean – most places can be accessed by train, car or bicycle.
But as long as bad weather prevails in Europe, an air journey must already be considered.
But then the goal must be really true: Here are tips for beaches that may not be completely secret but can still fulfill dreams – from January to December.
Five Beaches that are Hot Year Round
Costa Rica is famous for its breathtaking nature – in addition to rainforests, waterfalls and volcanoes, it also includes diverse wildlife and plenty of beaches.
Particularly beautiful are the sheltered bays of the National Park Manuel Antonio. The Playa Manuel Antonio is just a short walk from the park entrance: the sand is white and fine, capuchin monkeys are playing in the palm trees, sloths and toucans can be discovered in the treetops.

Sanibel Island On Florida
A soft crunching and crackling, a constant rustling and clacking welcomes the beach visitors in the tropical natural paradise of Sanibel Island on Florida’s southwest coast. There are supposed to be more than 350 different types of mussels in different shapes – more than anywhere else in the world. On the kilometer-long beach, young and old look for precious specimens such as the speckled olive snail or the tiger-crowned scallop – Sanibel’s greatest treasure.

Of course, beautiful bays and beaches are many. But anyone who has ever visited the Seychelles Islands in the Indian Ocean knows paradise – or what some people imagine. One of the most beautiful bays is the Anse Lazio on the island of Praslin. With palm trees over clear water that laps the rocks, this place is a popular photo wallpaper motif – and capable of causing terrible wanderlust.
- Air: 28 degrees
- Water: 27 degrees
In the water colorful fishing boats rock, in the shade of the palm trees the fishermen sit and mend their nets. Coconut farmers peel the marrow from the fruits. The sea shines in all colors between ink blue and turquoise green. On the Thai island of Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Siam, such holiday dreams come true – and especially on the quiet double beach Tong Nai Pan.
- Air: 30 degrees
- Water: 29 degrees
Three densely wooded headlands stretch into the sea, and in between are two white-yellow sand bays in the Cala Mondragó on the southeast coast of Majorca. The two beaches Ses Fonts de n’Alis and S’Amarador are connected by a narrow trail. Aleppo pines and holm oaks are reflected in the various shades of blue in the sea, while rare birdsong can be heard in the bird protection zone of the Parc natural de Mondragó.

- Water: 17 degrees
The above five hot beaches are the wonderful places where you can go in any season.
