Winter has officially arrived. As the days get shorter, and temperatures drop, it’s easy to start longing for warmer days. If you’re daydreaming about lounging on a sun-drenched beach, or swimming in turquoise waters, there are several unique beaches to help you do just that. Dive in, to find out more.

Oahu Hawaii

Home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Oahu’s Waimea Bay Beach Park, offers a little bit of everything. Conveniently located away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, you’re bound to find seclusion and clear water ideal for snorkeling. Feeling adventurous? The park is also famous for its jump rock formations that will certainly test your courage. Secret tip: The beach is a few minutes away from Waimea Valley, don’t miss out on its stunning preserved gardens, waterfalls, and peacocks roaming the grounds. Stay at the Kahlala Hotel & Resort for a luxury stay in paradise.

Boracay Philippines

If nothing sounds better than a long strip of white sand, then Boracay is the right beach for you. The winter season is the best time to visit the Philippines, with beaches reopening for the season. You’ll also have the chance to choose from several adrenaline-filled activities, ranging from rainforest adventures to mermaid swimming classes. Eager to explore your surroundings? Take a trip to one of the country’s numerous volcano spots, and witness some thrilling volcanic activity. Book at the Crimson Boracay for elegant architecture combined with traditional island culture.

Pink Sands Beach Bahamas

Said to be delivered straight from a dream, pink sand beach in the Bahamas offers untouched natural wonders and 5km of soft pink sand. Situated on one of the smaller islands, the beach provides a perfect place to sunbathe and makes for one of the most unusual beaches in the world. The mezmerising rose color is produced by a marine species, whose red shell mixes with the white sand to create the ethereal hue. Visitors can spend the days swimming, fishing and snorkeling, and enjoy the town’s exciting nightlife after hours. Spoil yourself with an equally dreamy stay at the Reef Atlantis.

Palm Beach Aruba

From windsurfing to banana boats, the gorgeous island of Aruba has no shortage of water sports. Walk a few hundred feet from the resorts of Palm Beach and you’ll be treated to the aqua-blue Caribbean and power white sand. Feeling adventures? Palm Beach also offers the chance to try paddleboarding and rent wave runners to explore the island waters. Thinking of trying your hand at fishing? The Atlantic is home to an array of colorful fish. Discover them for yourself, and rent a charter boat at the Renaissance Marina downtown. For a relaxed experience, stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Aruba Resort.

Koh Tao Thailand

If you’re not short on time, Thailand is the perfect spot to escape the winter. While Thailand has no shortage of activities (from delicious food to exciting nightlife), its picturesque beaches are definitely one of the main attractions. If you’re looking for a secluded spot away from the tourists, the tiny island of Koh Tao is located in the Gulf of Thailand and is known for its superb diving sites. Spend the entire day at the beach with schools of tropical fish darting about. If you’re planning a trip with the family, stay at the family-friendly Jamahkiri Spa & Resort.
