A beach vacation is a very relaxing way to regroup and clear your mind, according to science. A new study has found that residential exposure to visible blue space, like the sea or the ocean, is associated with lower psychological distress in a capital city, even if you don't realize it.

This is just another reason to plan a few days away sunbathing on powdery beaches and sipping chilly cocktails.

Are you looking forward to the time of year when flip flops, boogie boards, seashells, and beach barbecues become part of the norm and weekends are spent packing up the car and heading towards the coast?

Where you can go varies with individuals’ tastes. The stunning beaches on the following list fall into different categories to suit every traveler – popular, secluded, hard to get to, ideal for relaxation, swimming or snorkeling, or perfect for surfing.

You will find the right piece of “heaven on earth” even if you just want to stroll for seashells, sunbathe or build sand castles.

Pick the perfect beach for your summer vacation whether it’s just with your significant other or entire family. Bring a bathing suit, a towel, possibly a picnic basket, and lots of suntan lotion.
