Get your Vitamin Sea In Villas By The Beach


That feeling of the sand between your toes, the sound of waves lapping the shore – it’s medicinal, don’t you think? Drinking in the sea air just feels good for the soul! There are few holiday pleasures better than being in easy reach of a fabulous beach. If sun, sea and sand are high on your wish list, you might want to check out some of our favourite spots to lay your towel.

Tigertail beach, Marco Island, Gulf Coast – Florida

This unspoilt spot idles within the bustle of Marco Island – yours to discover for a small entrance fee. While easy boardwalk access and great facilities are close by, if you wade through a small lagoon you’ll find the shallow, clear waters of Tigertail Beach with its butterfly garden and bird watching opportunities.

Capellans Playa De Muro – Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Playa de Muro, or Ponderosa Beach as it’s affectionately known, is a gorgeous sandy beach in the northeast of the island. If you want to get away from the crowds flocking to neighbouring Alcudia’s shores but still crave atmosphere, this is the spot for you. Nearby restaurants and bars offer delicious local dishes, and when night comes the music flows out onto the sand.

Best beaches Corralejo

Once a fishing town, many a boat still sails between the neighbouring islands and Corralejo beach. If you fancy a day at sea you can join one of the trips and cruises for yourself. If you haven’t found your sea-legs, the vast network of sand dunes of this protected coast gives you plenty of space to relax.

best beaches Scopello

This hidden paradise is close to the Zingaro Natural Reserve. Uncover shells among the pebbles and shingle, spotting crabs, or even an octopus! Clear waters and greentopped rock faces set a tranquil scene, yet a few bars nearby bring you back to civilisation, if you wish.
