Beach of the Week: South Water Caye, Belize

South Water Caye, Belize
Like a dream: Southwater Caye, Belize
Sometimes you just need to commune with nature.  Why not do it in a spot as beautiful as South Water Caye, an island off the coast of Belize?  Situated atop the Belize Barrier Reef, the snorkeling and diving here are supreme.  You can snorkel right off the beach, finding a rich array of colorful fish and sea life.  Arrange a dive trip, and further explore the reef and deep blue sea.  

After your aquatic adventures, head to the beach.  The beaches on South Water Caye are, quite simply, heaven.  The fine white sand, the Caribbean blue water, and the tropical tranquility will lull you into a nap in Paradise.

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?

Friday Fashion: Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival Fashion
Cannes inspired!

The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing!  The films are an integral aspect of the festival, of course, but just as important are the fashion culture and beach life!  This week, we feature some pieces that would be right at home on Plage C or strolling down Boulevard de la Croisette.  

The tunic by Glamourpuss NYC is made of sun protective fabric!  It can be worn as a swimsuit cover-up, a dress, or a tunic length top.  Pair it with an awesome tote, some chic sunnies, and colorful accessories.  To protect yourself from that Riviera sun, wear a stylish sun hat, like San Remo.

What would you wear to the Cannes Film Festival?

Beach of the Week: Playa de las Catedrales Galicia, Spain

Playa de las Catedrales Arch Shaped Rock Formation
Breathtaking Playa de las Catedrales
We were so struck by the beautiful rock formations at Praia da Marinha beach, that this week we’re visiting another beach with awe inspiring cliffs: Playa de las Catedrales (Beach of the Cathedrals).

Near the town of Ribadeo, in the Galicia region of Spain, Playa de las Catedrales provides a regal spot to wade, explore, and take lots (and lots) of pictures.  Towering cliffs have been shaped over time into dramatic formations.  Most famous among these are the tremendous arches that resemble the flying buttresses of cathedrals.

Timing is of essence, as the beach is only accessible at low tide.  During low tide, you can walk the beach, exploring caves and pools and soaking in the majesty of its arches.

If you could visit any beach today, which would it be?

Get ready for Summer!  Stock up on sunscreen, sun hats and swimwear!
