Nothing says rest and relaxation like a vacation at the beach. However, not all beaches are created equal. Some shorelines are clogged with hotels and swamped with noisy tourists. Fortunately, there still many coastlines that are virtually untouched. From the shores of Florida to the warm waters of Australia, these 10 exquisite beaches offer unparalleled ocean views and unsullied white sands. So take a load off, take a vacation…

1. St. George Island State Park, Florida

One of the few unspoiled beaches left in Florida, St. George Island is located in the Gulf of Mexico and boasts rolling dunes, pristine white beaches, and gently undulating oat grass. Unlike many popular Florida beaches, St. George’s Island is not surrounded by excessive development, making it the perfect destination for visitors who want to relax and enjoy the calm of the ocean.

2. Hapuna Beach, Hawaii

Located on the Big Island of Hawaii, Hapuna Beach is as close to paradise on earth as mere mortals can get. If white sands and clear turquoise water aren’t enough to awe tourists and locals alike, the beach is also the perfect spot to ride the waves on a surfboard or bodyboard. Other favorite water sports include swimming and snorkeling.

3. El Nido Beach, the Philippines

Located on the island of Palawan in the Philippines, El Nido is world famous for its blanched beaches and fascinating limestone formations. El Nido is home to several low-key resorts which do their best to avoid dominating the naturally beautiful area. The beach is particularly well-known for its distinctive stilted cottages that hover invitingly over the water and offer a way for visitors to live in tune with the tides.

4. Ko Kradan, Thailand

Nestled in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Southern Thailand, Ko Kradan is far from the hustle and bustle of Thailand’s typical tourist traps. With unclouded waters and sugary beaches, Ko Kradan is a welcome haven from the stress of modern life. Ko Kradan’s thatched bungalows and laid-back lifestyle make it the perfect destination for those who want to experience pure beach life. The warm waters around the island are a popular diving spot and have become a preferred site for underwater weddings.

5. Whitehaven Beach, Australia

With all of the beautiful beaches Down Under, it can be difficult to pick just one, but Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island outstrips all of the competition. The shockingly white beach and crystalline waters will instantly overcome first-time visitors. The high water visibility in the Coral Sea allows divers and swimmers unobstructed views of the ocean floor. Best of all, the island is only a two-hour boat ride away from the Great Barrier Reef.

6. Boulder’s Beach, South Africa

South Africa’s loveliest beach sports massive granite boulders, aquamarine waters, and smooth, white sand. It is also home to an adorable colony of endangered African penguins, who delight tourists by waddling up and down protected portions of the beach. The beach’s namesake rocks provide shelter from the wind and swift currents, making it an ideal relaxation spot on South Africa’s often blustery coast.

7. Caló des Moro, Spain

The crown jewel of Spain, Caló des Moro is a beautiful sheltered cove in Majorca. Lovingly maintained by its private owners, the beach is open to public visitors. The unspoiled bay is the perfect place for swimmers to take a dip in the warm waters of the Mediterranean and attracts visitors from around the world who are anxious to see the area’s pristine beauty for themselves.

8. Baia de Sancho, Brazil

Perched on the edge of the Fernando de Noronha archipelago in Brazil, Baia de Sancho has an international reputation as one of the world’s loveliest beaches. The local ecosystem is ecologically diverse, with multiple species of tropical fish and friendly turtles greeting divers who take the plunge into the bay’s clear waters. The beach is part of the Fernando de Noronha Marine National Park and is also home to protected species of crabs, coral, and birds. Due to its remote location, Baia de Sancho is not as crowded as other famous Brazilian beaches, but it is the perfect place for tourists who are seeking a little peace.

9. Playa del Amor, Mexico

One of the most unusual beaches in the world, Playa del Amor is located in the unoccupied Marieta Islands near Puerto Vallarta. In the early 1900s, the Mexican army conducted explosives testing on the islands. In the process, they blew a large hole into the volcanic rock that covers the northern end of the easternmost island, revealing a beautiful beach only accessible by swimmers at low tide. Although the Mexican government restricted access to the islands in 2016, small numbers of swimmers are permitted to visit this unique beach daily.

10. Race Point Beach, Cape Cod

The inspiration for legions of painters, Race Point Beach lies on the end of Cape Cod. Made up of windswept dunes sprinkled with beachgrass, bayberry shrubs, and wild cranberries, Race Point is protected by the federal government as part of Cape Cod National Seashore. The beach is a popular destination for hikers and bicyclists who can traverse the region’s many trails and take in the area’s natural beauty. Race Point Beach is also home to the picturesque 19th-century lighthouse, Race Point Light, a historical landmark that is still in operation.

While virgin sands and unsullied shores may be few and far between, there are beaches that have mostly resisted commercialization. Whether they are in hidden tropical paradises or part of strictly protected land, these beautiful beaches provide a sanctuary from the overcrowded seaside.

5 Little Life Hacks to Change Your World

Do you want to improve your life and become a better person? Of course, who wouldn’t? However, you might not know the best ways to change that are likely to have the maximum impact on your happiness and well-being. The five following life hacks are little, but applying them can enhance your energy, mood, and outlook.

Get up early

If you don’t usually get up early, you’re missing something special. Rise before everyone else, and you’ll experience a sense of peace and calm that’s not present the rest of the day. Also, you’ll get a head start. Early rising gives you the chance to ease into the morning and allow the night’s cobwebs to lift gently. Instead of rushing into everyday tasks, you can create a wise, positive intention to carry forth and set your mind as you wish. You can also begin chores sooner than you would if you got up later, and so complete them earlier, or be more productive.

Stop trying to be understood

Your happiness will increase if you cease wanting others to understand you. Seriously, you might not recognize how much time you spend fretting over whether others ‘get’ you, but it’s probably a lot. Just imagine how much less complicated life would be if you no longer cared if people had a good grasp on what you were thinking and feeling.

The good news is, it’s up to you. You can decide to drop worrying about how people’s perception of you might not match your innermost feelings and just enjoy being you.

Listen to your intuition

How often have you smacked your forehead in disbelief because you didn’t listen to the warning voice in your head and made a mistake? There’s no point saying “I knew that was going to happen” but not taking notice of your intuition the next time it speaks. From now on, respect your inner wisdom, whether it arises from a gut feeling or thought. As a result, you’ll have fewer problems.

Take a break

You live in a busy world where productivity pays, sometimes anyway. For this reason, you fill your days with activity, imagining doing so will be rewarding. Even if you’re only watching the TV or cleaning the kitchen cupboard, you’re doing something. Nonetheless, your activities often don’t make you happy because you’re stressed.

As cheesy as it sounds, stopping to smell the roses really will improve your well-being. When you slow down and do less, your anxiety decreases. You breathe a sigh of relief since pressure lifts.

Get rid of clutter

Declutter your home and your life will follow suit. You’ll think more clearly and be smarter and more positive when you don’t face mounds of junk each day. Walk from room to room, noticing where mess accumulates and consider how to accommodate it better – not by filling a box you never empty, but by putting it away in the right places.

First, though, you might have to create the “right places.” Hang hooks where items that can be hung are piled. Put goods that don’t need to live where they are back where they came from, and add storage containers where they are needed. Plus, schedule time in which to rehouse items that wind up in the wrong places, because, let’s face it, they still will occasionally.

These five little life hacks have the power to transform your well-being, but you have to do them rather than only reading about them. Add them to your routine behaviors until they become habits, and your life will improve.
