At a time when coral bleaching and the negative effects of mass tourism on coastal environments is top of mind, it’s heartening that places like the Farasan archipelago still exist. Comprising 176 islands, it possesses one of the world’s most unspoilt underwater wildernesses. All manner of marine life makes its way through these waters: sea turtles, manta rays, whale sharks and dolphins.
There is something wonderful about the waters, besides the salt that keeps swimmers so famously buoyant. It all adds up to make Jordan a true seaside wellness destination.
Turkey’s a pretty serious contender for the title of Europe’s most popular beach break destination, but its numerous lovely spots mean, it’s often tricky to pick the right one. Ovabaku, on the Datca peninsula, is an utterly mesmerising beach. The prettiest of three bays, the beach is relatively small but has the kind of countryside you read about in fairytales. Pine forests, tall oak and carob trees simply add to the sense of wonder. For those seeking an escape from Turkey’s more crowded beaches, Ovabuku is the ideal (and idyllic) solution.
Located on the sun-bleached southwestern coast of Menorca, the tranquil Cala Macarella is the ideal escape from the congested beaches of nearby Mallorca and Ibiza. To get there you need to take a two-mile walk along the cliffs from nearby Cala Galdana.
With its dramatic limestone arch, craggy cliffs, and soft golden sand, Durdle Door is one of the most scenic beaches in all of Europe. But it’s not just a pretty face — the Marine Conservation Society recommends the beach for swimming and fishing, thanks to its excellent water quality. It’s also part of the Jurassic Coast, a 95-mile stretch of coastline studded with so many spectacular geological features and fossils that UNESCO designated it a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Milos might just be the untouched Greek island you've been searching for, with a mythological-looking landscape and the bluest water. Case in point: Sarakiniko Beach. Its large, sun-bleached rocks eroded by saltwater stretch out over the sea, giving the impression that you're standing on the moon.
Iceland might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of beaches, but there’s no denying that the beauty of its rugged coastline is astounding. You won’t see palms or white sand here. In Vik, the sand is as black as caviar and the beach is dotted with soaring basalt columns. This, in our opinion, makes it all the more special and beautiful.
