10 Beaches to Blow Your Mind


Let’s face it; the beach that will next blow your mind is more than likely the next one you can get to, regardless of where it is. 

We love beaches, despite their many inconveniences. The impolite, pushy and un-shy sand. The temperamental surf. The wind that whips hair, sand, and surf into a frenzy. The sun that burns that spot the sun block cream didn’t reach. The sharks that stalk us (thankfully, usually, in our minds alone). 

Yes, we love them. A beach always feels like the ultimate escape. Why? Is it an evolutionary hangover? Are we returning to our ancient origins as creatures- crawled-out-of-the-ocean? Or did we develop our desire for the beach alongside our need for the food that the ocean provides? Is it the sound of the waves, which science says has a calming effect on our brain activity? Maybe it’s the guaranteed hit of vitamin D our exposed skin absorbs. 

We could speculate all day. Except that brings us no closer to the beach. And at the beach, there’ll be no speculation; we’ll be in the moment. So go! Find a beach. Go now. Don’t wonder why. You know it’s the right thing to do. 

  1. 1 Cabbage Beach / Nassau, Bahamas


    THE NAME OF THIS BEACH ISN’T CONJURING UP AN IMAGE OF PARADISE.

    Ignore the somewhat ignoble name and focus on the impossibly white and soft sand, the nearly 3km of aquamarine waves gently lapping at the shoreline, the tropical tiki huts providing shade along the length of the seashore, and the palms swaying in the warm breeze.

    WELL, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT’S A TEXTBOOK EXAMPLE OF PARADISE. 

    There’s no denying the Bahamas know how to do beaches. The only off-putting thing about a holiday here is that everyone else wants to holiday here. Cabbage Beach is very, very popular – so expect to share your sunshine. 

    CAN I AVOID THE CROWDS?

     There are a few options. You can see the land from the sea by renting a jet ski or a more sedate floating lounge from one of the multitudes of operators. You could retreat to one of the luxury resorts that ring the coastline and order your- self a cocktail. Or tune out the masses with a pair of giant sunglasses and your own beachside sun lounger. If all this fails to get you the solitude you crave, try heading to the eastern end of the beach where it’s slightly less populated
