Tripadvisor’s top 10 beach escapes for winter

Bora Bora, French PolynesiaIn a newsletter I’ve just received from Tripadvisor, they’re recommending the following beach destinations if you’d sooner be shovelling sand rather than snow this winter:
  • Tulum, Mexico
  • Maui, Hawaii
  • Palm/Eagle Beach, Aruba
  • Grace Bay, Turks & Caicos
  • Destin, Florida
  • Bora Bora, French Polynesia
  • Mykonos, Greece
  • St. John, USVI
  • Shoal Bay, Anguilla
  • Laguna Beach, California
I  must say I’m a little surprised to see Mykonos make the list.   Temperatures on the island are typically around 5-10 degrees Centigrade in January and, last January, they even had snow there.

  1. In the US, for a quick get away, one of my favorite places to go is the Emerald Coast (Destin, Florida area). They have some of the most beautiful white beaches.

  2. Fantastic list – these certainly are some of the world’s best beaches! Personally, I’m curious to know why Australia wasn’t worthy of a mention? The land ‘down under’ seems to have gone ‘under cover’ in this instance…
