Questor’s Top Paradise Beaches

Date Created: 28 April 2015

Black SandCayo Largo meaning large island is on the south coastline of the underbelly of the Havana province, leading with its fine sugar white sand and lukewarm calm waters, clear enough to reveal the underlying ocean floor. Swimming among star fish and turtles is a tourist check when visiting Cayo Largo. Easy transport from the few serene hotels situated on the Island is available, a small train drives tourists to the beach, whilst a visit to the natural pool by boat is also a convenience. However nude sunbathing is allowed, and a downside is it has no cultural movement; completely full of tourists as no Cuban residents are allowed there other than workers.

Travelers from across the globe have dubbed Honokalani Black Sand Beach, located in the Wainapanapa State Park as one of the most beautiful volcanic rock beaches in the world. Its combination of lava pebbles and powdery black sand meeting the cerulean skies, seduce travellers into exploring this beach.  At this top spot you can snorkel, scuba dive and kayak or discover the sea caves and lava tubes made of natural stone and lava through its decades of evolution. The beach also has hiking trails which host a great area for camping among the Wainapanapa cliff tops.  Its best to visit during the summer months as during the winter, swimming and surfing can be very dangerous as the surf becomes particularly high.

Fraser Island, its indigenous name ‘paradise’ is the worlds largest sand island at 123km long and 22km wide running on the south eastern coast of Queensland. Not only is this vast chalky beach protected and maintained for all to appreciate, it also consists of over 100 freshwater lakes ranging from indigo to alice blue to cyan cradled by velvet sand and accompanied by towering tree canopies. The island is a great place to explore for naturists or travellers looking to explore heathlands home to rare birds such as the ground bird, or the endagered dingoes. Whales often make appearances in sheltered waters whereby licensed tour operators escort you to admire them. This beach is definitely one to boast about over social media #Utopia 

You may have heard people buzzing about Seychelles, the paradise of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, if you havent then read on. Anse Source D’Argent ( La Digue ) is the ultimate beach for those looking to escape the norm and bask in the shade of the slender stemmed coconut palms surrounded by smooth granite boulders.  The culture is a mix of Seychellois, French and African influences whilst the native language being Creole, however English and French are commonly used. The culture impacts the Island with its various traditions, art, cusine and music which allows tourists to experience the multi cultural backgrounds of the Seychellios community. If you’re a social butterfly then head down to the shore at dusk where you will encounter the sound of Dun Dun Ba’s and Balafong drums whilst the Creole Chef’s cook up a storm on their authentic bbq’s. If you are a lover of sea food and strong zesty flavours the food here will really indulge you in to the African lifestyle.  A must visit for a paradise beach on your bucket list.
