Longing for a break and looking forward to a relaxing time at the beach enjoying the sea breeze? Unfortunately, most of the popular beaches will be filled with people during summer. You will hardly have any peaceful moments at all. Do not lose hope though, as there are some beaches that are relatively less crowded than the usual popular spots like Phuket or Kuta. Here are some suggestions for those yearning for a peaceful holiday.
1. Canggu, Bali, Indonesia
Canggu is a coastal village in Bali, located between the popular Seminyak and Tanah Lot. It is a relatively quiet village in contrast to its neighbours though. Canggu is also known to be a surfer’s paradise. It also have quite a fair bit of restaurants and cafe along the beaches. It’s a good place to take a breather and enjoy a less crowded beach in Bali which offers the same sunset and sea breeze.
2. Koh Chang, Thailand
Koh Chang is the second largest island of Thailand, but it does not have the immerse tourist crowd like the other island attractions. People who liked being around Nature will love this place. You will get to trek the mountains and dive into the ocean to your heart’s content. There are a few beaches in Koh Chang and if you prefer a truly peaceful holiday you can look for a resort that are off the usual tourist track.
3. Wakatobi Islands, Indonesia
Wakatobi is made up of 4 islands, and all of them require some pre-planning just to get there. Transportation there may be an issue, but that also means that the islands will not be filled with tourists and crowd. You can really enjoy yourself to the fullest at the beach or take on a cultural exploration with the locals. One can really learn from them about living a simple but fulfilling life.
It’s always good to take a break sometimes and get away from the crowd and noise of the city. However, it is also important for us to learn how to relax our mind and soul during a vacation. There are times when we tend to stress ourselves a little too much with the itineraries schedule. Only when your mind is truly at peace, then we can really unwind and enjoy a relaxing, peaceful holiday.
Time to recharge.
