Azure Window and The Blue Hole
The Blue Hole and Azure Window: Swimming in Paradise

The island of Gozo in Malta is home to The Azure Window and The Blue Hole, neighboring natural wonders.   The Azure Window is a dramatic arch towering over the seaside, it’s pale stone contrasting against the deep blue sea.   It’s a much loved destination in its own right, and visitors also come to take a dip in its neighbor, The Blue Hole.  

A popular spot for scuba divers, The Blue Hole is world renowned for its crystal clear depths.  Beneath the water lie interesting features like arches and caverns, all brimming with sea life.  If scuba isn’t your bag, it’s also a wonderful spot for snorkeling.  Or take the basic route, and just enjoy a swim in the gorgeous Mediterranean waters.

Beach of the Week: Tulum, Mexico

Beach at Tulum, Mexico
Breathtaking views at Tulum, Mexico

Here’s a destination that combines fascinating archeology with picture perfect beach Paradise.  Tulum holds the ruins of a Mayan temple and city, built in the 15th century at the edge of the cliffs.  It may well be the Mayans chose this spot for ease of fortification, but one can easily theorize that the breathtaking view also had something to do with it

After wandering the ruins, just head down to the beach, where you’ll find sugar white sand and beautiful blue water.  Cool off in the sea and bask in the Yucatan sun, enjoying the impressive, historic backdrop.

What beach are you daydreaming about today?

SolEscapes and beach vacations go hand in hand.  Pack your bags with sun hats, swimwear, cover-ups and all your warm weather vacation must haves!
