What makes a great beach all depends on the traveler. Some prefer wide stretches of sand with ample activities and throngs of people to watch, while others desire deserted shorelines with calm waters. In any case, an ocean trip allows us to feel the charm of nature and fully enjoy it.

Here are some beaches that are suitable for ocean travel and they are extremely beautiful.

1.Bora Bora

This French Polynesian island is small but mighty. Measuring only 6 miles long and less than 3 miles wide, Bora Bora is packed with stunning beaches, green jungles and ritzy resorts featuring overwater bungalows.

Matira Beach is ideal for sunbathing and strolling along sandy shores, while the beach at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora is where you should head for Mount Otemanu views and calm water.

Snorkeling and shark-feeding excursions are also available if you enjoy adventurous pursuits.


Boasting 333 islands, resplendent resorts, sparkling waters and endless stretches of pristine sand, Fiji is the perfect spot for paradise-seeking beachgoers.

Travelers who want to snorkel while on vacation should set their sights on Taveuni's diverse coral reefs. Popular options include Qalito Island (also known as Castaway Island) and Vomo Island.


Tahiti should be high on your list if you like your beaches paired with gourmet French cuisine. The largest of French Polynesian's islands is known for offering top-notch fare, verdant jungles, lavish resorts and sandy shores.

The smaller section of Tahiti (known as Tahiti Iti) is more secluded than the larger Tahiti Nui, but both are worth seeing. Tahiti Iti's famous beach, La Plage de Maui, is highly regarded for a reason , but the popularity comes with crowds.

Check out Papenoo Beach on Tahiti Nui for excellent surfing conditions and more breathing room.

If you want to take a boat trip and experience the full joy of ocean travel, there are a few more details you need to know.

1.Boat shoes

A trip to sea is the perfect excuse to buy boat shoes.Boat shoes first appeared on the scene back in 1935 when they were invented by Paul Sperry, a sailor from Connecticut.

They have white soles which prevent black streaks from getting on often expensive decking, as well as non-slip soles to help maintain traction.

The name Sperry is synonymous with boat shoes, offering a variety of options from casual to classy.

If you’ve been eying them up for years but couldn’t quite justify the purchase, now is the time to hit the high seas and get shopping.

2.Buy quality sunglasses

The majority of your time on a boat is going to be spent outside.The sun reflecting off the water can be a lot more powerful than it looks, meaning sunglasses are important.

The best choice for a trip at sea are polarized sunglasses. Not only do they keep the rays out of your eyes, but polarized sunglasses also help neutralize glare off the water.

3.Be prepared for seasickness

If you’re not used to being at sea, you should prepare yourself for a heavy amount of seasickness.While most large ships experience minimal movement, it can still be disorientating to sit down and eat while the scenery is flitting past outside.

The problem with most sea sickness medication is if you only take it when you need it, it’s too late. This is why it’s important to pay close attention to weather conditions. If you are new to boating, we recommend erring on the side of caution.

These are best to take if you know rough weather is ahead, or even the night before and the first day of your trip, to enable you to become accustomed to the movement.
