The beach is always on trend but with a twist in 2019. Although there is a time and a place for all-inclusive vacations, we're itching to leave the resort life for bigger pursuits. Beach vacations with bountiful opportunities to venture beyond the usual boundaries are rising in popularity, even more this coming year.
Where to Go: Enter Tulum, Mexico, where you can relax on the beach in the morning per usual AND discover caves, cenotes, and more in the afternoon. Perhaps you'd like your beach cocktail after chasing waterfalls or dabbling in some coastline ridge hiking in Kauai. Or maybe your afternoon swim will be with giant sperm whales in the Philippines after basking in some sunshiny vitamin D with a good book on a Tuesday morning. Proof that the beach will never be boring.
