Get some northern hemisphere sand between your toes
The words 'island', 'beach' and 'holiday' just seem to go together. The grand United States have their fair share of sun, sand and surf for families, honeymooners and partygoers alike. California leads the charge on the west coast from the urban circus of Venice Beach to trendy Newport and the popular piers of Santa Monica. To the east, explore the summer playground of the rich and famous, the Hamptons, or soak in the sunshine alongside retirees and spring-breakers in Miami, Florida.
Towards the border of Central America you will find stunning beaches tracing the Mexican coastline. Resort town Cancun dances between past and present on the doorstep of ancient Mayan civilisation, at the same time enjoying a thriving social scene day and night. Glamorous Acapulco's magnificent bays and festive atmosphere draw crowds year-round, while Los Cabos and Cozumel offer a taste of trademark Mexican beachside culture. Further out to sea lie popular Caribbean destinations Barbados, Bahamas and Puerto Rico. These paradisiacal hotspots embrace everything you expect an island holiday to – infinite white sandy beaches, azure waters teeming with friendly marine life, colourful local culture and opportunities for underwater discovery and deep relaxation.
