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!

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.

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
