Five Beaches Where You Will Need a Microfibre Towel

With around 372,000 miles of coastline around the world, there are an endless amount of beaches to travel and explore.

As Lifeventure fans, we’re guessing your ideal beach holiday is not two weeks in Bournemouth? We love Bournemouth, but sometimes the heart needs more of an adventure…

Some of the most breath taking beaches are often the most secluded and remote, meaning you need to pack light to get there – so leave your windbreak and parasol behind!

With this in mind, we’ve got a list of some of the best beaches out there where a space saving microfibre towel can make all the difference.

Lopes Mendes, Ilha Grande

On the Brazilian island of Ilha Grande, one of the most popular beaches is named Lopes Mendes. This beach has white sand, clear shallow waters and there isn’t a building in sight.

However, getting to this paradise requires 2-3 hours of trekking through jungles and beaches. Despite a tough walk, there are some stunning views as well as howler monkeys along the way. Leaving earlier in the morning is a good idea to avoid the midday heat. If you decide trekking one way was enough, there are regular boats back to the main beach of Vila do Abraão.

Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island

Whitehaven beach in Australia is well-known to have some of the purest sand in the world and is a favourite of many travellers. Its sand is so fine that it can destroy any electronics you might have. It is only accessible by boat or helicopter, so saving space in your bag is a priority if you want to make sure your camera and other electronics are safe.

Cerro Chato, La Fortuna

If a lagoon in the crater of an inactive volcano sounds like your kind of thing, then Cerro Chato in Costa Rica might just be for you. Surrounded on all sides by trees and a narrow shoreline, the lagoon offers a refreshing swim after a gruelling trek to the top.

A reasonably pleasant start at the bottom turns in to an increasingly demanding climb through a forest. It’s important to travel light, but also to make sure you have the water and snacks you will need along the way.

Kaihalulu Beach, Maui

Hawaii’s Kaihalulu is well-known for its red sand beach and the dangerous trail to access it. A narrow and slippery cliff edge walk is needed to get to this secluded beach but it’s worth the journey. Deep blue waters and jagged black rock give you a unique beach experience.

Navagio Beach, Zakynthos

Found in the Ionian islands of Greece, Navagio beach (otherwise known as Shipwreck beach) is visited by thousands of tourists every year due to its clear blue water, white sand and shipwreck on the beach. You will need to take a boat ride to this hidden cove but it is definitely worth the trip.
