Top 7 best beaches around the WorldLike0

 There is a reason why we created a whole section just for beautiful beaches. Simple. I am a beach person. I need to live by the beach, see the beach, smell the beach and have lots of blue in my life more than green. Have you ever thought about it?! What color do you need in your life? I learned to appreciate and the existence of 50 shades of blue whilst vacationing in Jamaica. Even the Maldives couldn’t beat that sort of beach blue. As commercial as it sounds, the Caribbean is still the sexiest beach I have been to. Here are few of my Top 7 best beaches around the World , not necessarily in the right order. Do let me know what YOUR favorite is and if you have a color you need to see to feel in peace.

Love,

2. Good for escaping everything Port Antonio, Jamaica

Stay at One of our favorite hotels in Jamaica is Gee Jam. It’s one of these hotels that you can’t ever stop talking about after visiting. You feel secluded and far away from everything. 10 minute drive to your own private beach in Port Antonio and one close to the heart.

3. Good for Foodies Cala d’Orzo Beach, Corsica, France

Stay at Miramar Boutique Hotel A beautiful beach between Ajaccio & Propriano, hard to get by road and celebrated for the seafood lunches at Chez Francis beach bar. Get on a boat and see it!

6. Good for nature beaches and spa Emerald bay, Malaysia

Green blue sea backed by rainforest, stay at a private island hideaway off Malaysia’s west coast famous for its spa village called Pangkor Laut Resort You have to watch the sunset from Chapman’s Bar which is named after a British colonel who sought refuge there in 1945 before escaping the island by submarine.

7. Good for the love of the under world and the sea Raja Ampat, Indonesia

There are many other beautiful and cozy places worth visiting and enjoying. One of them is Raja Ampat, which is located in the province of Papua. Stay at Experience it with Amanwana Expedition

  • Lebanon in summer is all about exploring. Found this new hip beach bar on the coast of Byblos. The graffiti on the wall, the hanging hammocks in the water and the vibe, makes this place one of the cutest beach clubs I’ve seen so far. I love my beautiful home 🇱🇧
  • The last time I switched my laptop on was 5 days ago. The last time that happened was exactly a year ago. My phone is most of the time misplaced far away from me, my camera is still in my bag, my mind is switched off and I’m surrounded with love 💕and music 🎶. So happy to be back in Lebanon on my official summer break.
  • Home sweetest home ❤️
  • I love the the 3 AM version of people... Honest, vulnerable and real.
  • I have some sort of mental block this morning... which is a good thing so... Happy Thursday ☀️
  • This is a (long) thank you post... To my teachers.
Thank you for showing me my true strength... Not only physical strength, but more importantly mental strength.
Thank you for allowing me to let go... Whenever I feel I need a break from the world, your shala is the first place I run to... and when I’m away, it’s the first place I think of when I practice on my own, miles away. The sound of my breathing alone, takes me back to the exact spot where I place my mat... and I’m fully transported back to the stillness and awareness. 
Thank you for giving me a safe place to seek connection & allowing me to breathe... when I’m at my most vulnerable, you’ve made it ok for my tears to roll down my face in Savasana or during a posture, open up and just be me without any judgement. 
Thank you for offering so much of yourself to allow me to grow through my practice... Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of yoga, how to practice not only on the mat, but off the mat too... Yoga is a natural state of mind and not whether or not you can touch your toes. 
The light in me honors the light in you. Happy New moon 
Namaste

  • I’m still going through the photos I’ve taken during my trip to Menorca. Still can’t believe how beautiful the island is!
  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
  • How much time do you spend planning for a trip? I still can’t get over the beautiful sunsets I’ve been lucky to experience on the island. I’ve also written two blog posts on guides to Menorca and what to watch out for prior booking. 
I do usually spend a lot of time on research for my trips, months in advance and, for this specific trip, it was a little challenging finding a place to stay that matched what I was exactly looking for. 
The search engine that worked well for me was @wegoarabia - as for flights, I didn’t have too many options from Barcelona but it worked out well. I mixed it between hotel stay and private villa stay for my 10 nights. Booked a car and took it really easy at the end!
