Negombo Beach sunset, Negombo – Sri Lanka

After visiting Unawatuna, Mirissa, and Hikkaduwa, Negombo was my final beach stop in Sri Lanka. I stayed in Negombo for its proximity to the airport. It’s definitely not the best beach in Sri Lanka but I was happy to get one last beach walk and sunset before leaving the next day. Negombo Travel Resources Negombo […]

Hikkaduwa Beach, Sri Lanka

Hikkaduwa Beach is about 20km north of Galle heading towards Colombo. I wasn’t planning on coming here but I was on my way back to Colombo and I wasn’t quite ready to give up the beaches. I had read that Hikkaduwa was more developed and crowded, so I wasn’t expecting much. The beach is lovely […]

Mirissa Beach, Sri Lanka

I visited Mirissa on a day trip from Unawatuna Beach. It’s less than an hour by bus so I didn’t stay here, though I was wishing I was once I arrived. There are so many amazing beaches in Sri Lanka that you will end up saying that a lot. I could happily spend a month […]

Long Beach, Phu Quoc – Vietnam

Long Beach is the most popular beach on the island of Phu Quoc. There are technically better beaches on the island with softer sand and clearer water, this beach ticks the boxes for a tropical beach holiday. Travel Photos: Phu Quoc photo gallery

My Khe Beach, Da Dang – Vietnam

I visited Da Nang for a weekend break from Saigon via a cheap flight from VietJet Air. Living in the tropical south I forget that in central and northern Vietnam they have seasons where it gets cold. I arrived in Da Nang on a cold (by my reckoning) and drizzly day. Despite that I still […]

Hand of Punta del Este, Uruguay

The Hand of Punta del Este (Mano de Punta del Este) is a sculpture at Brava Beach in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The hand (by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal) has become the landmark image of Punta del Este, and I’ve even seen it as the representative icon of Uruguay in some tourist brochures. Punta del […]

Fishing boats, Ham Tien Beach [Mui Ne] – Vietnam

Mui Ne is a beach resort town in Southern Vietnam. When people refer to Mui Ne they usually mean the long stretch of beach that runs between Mui Ne and Phan Thiet; the town itself is a fishing port with only a few places to stay. I stayed on the beach at Ham Tien, which […]

Hon Ba Island, Vung Tau – Vietnam

Vung Tau is a beach city about 1.45 hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City (depending on how crazy your driver is). I was warned in advance to not expect much of the beach, so my expectations were suitably met. The city itself is much nicer than I thought it would be and it’s a […]
