Bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, Eleuthera Island lies approximately 75 miles east of The Bahamas. This thin island provides spectacular views of the ocean and offers rocky, natural pools that are several feet inland from the main body of water. In some areas, you can see the profound difference in water color on either side of the island based on depth with Eleuthera as the dividing land mass.
On the eastern side of the Yucatan Peninsula, an awe-inspiring beach of white sand stretches along the shores facing the Caribbean sea. Tulum, Mexico not only has the breath-taking view of the tropical waters, but it’s also the site of ancient Mayan ruins overlooking the shores as well. The ruins are over 700 years old and give this beach a unique and historical appearance. Few places in the Caribbean offer such an experience as it reminds visitors the significance of the area. According to Valerie Conners of Travel Channel, some of the ruins near the beach had been placed nearly two centuries ago.
Shoal Bay, Australia
Australia has many beaches and is a focal point for those looking to see marine life swim beneath the surface of the water. Shoal Bay is one of those more memorable spots. Visitors attest to the warmth of the water as fish can be easily seen through the crystal blue water for a great distance from the shore. Few rocks can be felt under-foot along the beach allowing one to bask in the warmth of the white, soft sand.
South of mainland India on the edge of the Arabian Sea lies one of Earth’s finest tropical jewels. The Maldives are a collection of small islands that are so close to the sea level that there is speculation about rising waters diminishing the island chain.

Lanikai Beach is on the eastern side of Honolulu and provides a spectacular view of the North Pacific Ocean offset by the mountains from the inland areas. A short distance into the ocean there are several small land masses that seem to spring up from the water like tiny mountain peaks.
There’s nothing wrong with spending the winter indoors while cuddled up by the fire. However, a tropical paradise can be just a romantic without the numbing cold. Give yourself a reason to adorn yourself with swimwear instead of parkas, and get yourself out on the beach during the winter.
