Daily stress can take a toll on your mind and body, and we’re all thinking of our next relaxing vacation now more than ever. A relaxing vacation can not only cleanse your body but also clear your mind, leaving you feeling completely rejuvenated when it’s time to return to reality. Isn’t that the whole point of vacationing in the first place?
You will find a spot dedicated to your personal calm no matter where you go in the globe. You don’t have to limit yourself to relaxing on a beach, though there are many of them to choose from from Bali to Hawaii and back. Relaxation can take many forms, from Costa Rica’s fascinating waterfalls to Norway’s breathtaking fjords to France’s charming villages.
Take a peek at some of these beautiful locations – consider it a virtual vacation until you can plan your next peaceful getaway.
1. Lumahai beach, Kauai, Hawaii
In Hawaii, there are plenty of lovely beaches, but Lumahai is particularly remarkable for those looking to get away from it all. This white sand beach is great for sunbathing or catching waves for experienced surfers. However, because to the severe undertow, swimming is not suggested.
2. Cape Elizabeth, Maine
What could be more relaxing than wandering around the cape and stopping to see the lighthouses? The Cape Elizabeth Light (or Two Lights lighthouse) has been in operation since 1874 at this town. Apart from its fascinating history and beautiful New England architecture, Cape Elizabeth is also known for its succulent lobster.
3. Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada
The beauty and crystalline lakes of Banff National Park are spectacular, but Lake Louise may be the loveliest (and most soothing) of them all. Campers and hikers alike can relax by its crystal-clear waters and marvel at mountain views that appear almost too perfect to be true – fortunately, they are. It’s also very probably the ideal relaxing holiday for outdoor enthusiasts.
4. Rio Celeste Falls, Costa Rica
Rio Celeste, located in Tenorio Volcano National Park, is recognised for its vibrant blue colour, which is unlike any other waterfall on the planet. The colourful colouring is actually a reaction of volcanic chemicals in the water, yet it looks almost magical against the tropical setting and surging surf.
5. Seven Sisters, East Sussex, England
East Sussex is an Anglophile’s dream come true. Seven Sisters is the quintessential English countryside that you’ve only ever heard about in a Victorian novel, with rolling green hills and a near proximity to the English Channel. If you go for a walk, you’ll come across some beautiful white chalk cliffs.
