Beaches of Bora Bora

Happy new year! And what better way to start into a new year with Tropical Island Dreaming… This photo shows the main #island of #BoraBora, #Frenchpolynesia with its extinct #volcano #Mount Otemanu, which is surrounded by a #lagoon and beautiful #beaches and #resorts. This island is the very definition of #paradise, and a must-see for every world #traveler out there!

Exuma Beaches

Beachlife in the #Bahamas – I took this shot along one of the most #beautiful #beaches I have seen on the Great Exuma #island in the Bahamas. Watching the #waves in the clear, #turquoise sea slowly wash over the fine, soft sand was totally relaxing – once you’ve seen this you cannot resist jumping straight into the waves!

George Town Marina

The view on part of the #marina in #GeorgeTown, Grand #Exuma – Visiting the #Bahamas was one of the most #relaxing #vacations I had in a long time, something I can highly recommend! And yes – the water is indeed crystal clear in an amazing turquoise tone, just beautiful.

Along the Highway to Hana

The #beach at #Paia on #Maui, HI – During my trip to #Hawaii, I discovered the Paia Rinyai Zen Mission – a Buddhist #Temple on northern shore of Maui. It’s a beautiful place with an amazing view on the #ocean. Definitely make a stop here if you’re in the area!

I found this fireplace at #Honomanu #Bay on #Maui, HI – with the lavish green landscape of the Ko’olau #Forest #Reserve in the background. Just sitting here, listening to the waves and taking the beautiful #landscape in was totally #relaxing.

Kula Beach

The #rocky, #volcanic #beaches near #Kula on the southern side of #Maui, #Hawaii are an amazing scenery to watch the #waves crush into the rocky #coastline. It is beautiful and relaxing at the same time – just sitting there, listening to the sea and enjoying the scenery.
