Durban, South Africa
Durban is considered one of the world’s best city beaches, and for good reason – the place is just teeming with life!
From cafes to art deco architecture and even whale and dolphin sightings, your vacation here will be just as relaxing as it is filled with memorable sights. Also, the place is perfect for surf lovers, while the views from the piers of the experts are simply breathtaking.
Thanks to the 2010 football World Cup and the subsequent cleanup that followed, Durban is booming and is an absolute gem of a vacation spot.
English Bay Beach, Vancouver, Canada
During the day, the English Bay beach sands seeÂ families and volleyball players flocking around its sands. But at night, it transforms into something else. It’s hard to call what exactly it transforms to, but it involves a few glasses and a guitar in hand while people gaze out at the sunsets.
Other than the beach life, the West End has plenty of coffee shops and the iconic Stanley Park. It’s also the best spot in case you’re in town during July to watch the Honda Celebration of Light fireworks display. Lastly, there’s the Beach Bay Cafe, which features scrumptious locally sourced and seasonal meals, sustainable seafood and of course, cocktails.
