Winter Beach Vacation Destinations


Who has not dreamed of getting away from the cold, dreary winter weather and escaping to the beach? Well, here are five beach destinations that can help fuel those dreams of a winter beach get-away.

Located on the island of Molokai, Hawaii, Molokai Ranch and Lodge offers a unique and whimsical lodging experience. The “rooms” are actually canvas tents, furnished in a “bungalow” style, sitting on wooden platforms. The units themselves have queen or twin size beds. Lights are solar-powered and private bathrooms offer hot-water showers. Nice, huh?

Outdoor activities abound in the area. Some are designed especially with children in mind.

AtlantisThe Atlantis Resort of the Bahamas offers a water park for its guests’ enjoyment. Attractions in the park include ELEVEN swimming pools, water slides with a Mayan temple theme, and of course a “lazy river” for “lazy” people. All this is IN ADDITION to the beaches that are located on the resort property. For the nature lover, a marine habitat offers a look at more than 50,000 different specimens of sea creatures in its lagoons that have designated as exhibit areas. This is just like a huge beach playground!

The amenities at the Virgin Islands National Park in the Virgin Islands boast white sandy beaches, and “cottage” accommodations (One might want to think “tent cottage” here). The lodging accommodations are very much like those offered at the Molokai Ranch and Lodge in Hawaii. Some of the activities offered include scuba diving, wind surfing, snorkeling, and kayaking.

Punta Cana Club Med is located in the Dominican Republic. This resort offers and provides all the amenities one can expect from a Club Med resort.

Grand Wailea Resort and Spa of Hawaii offers access to lagoons, and treats guests to river rides that take them to spectacular waterfalls. Water slides are also available, in addition to the 4,850 square foot Hibiscus pool. If a 4,000+ pool isn’t quite big enough, then there is no need to worry. Just enjoy the 25,700 square foot Canyon Activity pool that is also located on the resort property.
