I am a beach person. I want to be anywhere there is sand, sunshine and salt water. I’ve been to some really amazing beaches including beaches in Costa Rica, Southeast Asia, Europe, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, but it’s hard for me to pick a favorite because each beach is special in it’s own right. The beaches in Thailand have an exotic feel to them. Thai fishing boats are scattered along the sand and you can see some really amazing (and dangerous) sea life as well. The beaches of Hawaii are beautiful, obviously, and many of them have the backdrop of mountains and volcanoes. Beaches in the Caribbean are famous for the fine, white sand and the crystal, clear water. There are surfing beaches, snorkeling beaches, and beaches made for relaxation. I can’t pick a favorite because they all speak to me in different ways but the beaches of Cococay in the Bahamas are definitely high on my list.
Cococay is actually a private island in the Bahamas owned by Royal Caribbean International. So, you can only get to Cococay on one of Royal Caribbean’s cruise ships. We took a cruise to the Bahamas a month ago and were lucky enough to stop in Cococay. It is absolutely gorgeous and a really unique experience. There are a few different beaches along the island of Cococay. I think my favorite beach was “barefoot beach”. We could walk out for miles, ankle deep, and the water was so clear. We saw sting rays, conch shells, needle fish, and schools of fish without any goggles. There’s also a great snorkeling beach. You don’t have to swim out very far to see all kinds of amazing, tropical fish.
White sand, palm trees, and clear, blue water. Cococay is definitely a little piece of paradise.
