Top Beaches in the Pacific And Indian Oceans

Agonda Beach

Goa, India

Goa became a popular beach hideaway in the 1970s following the evolvement of an overland route spanning across Europe, through to Kashmir, Afghanistan and Nepal. Today, Goa is a popular tourist mecca.

White Beach

Boracay, Philippines

"Six km of super-soft sand and aqua waters.” Sounds like paradise right? Located on the island of Boracay, White Beach has fast become a much sought after travel destination. The beach looks just like a postcard and although regularly frequented by travellers, the beach is so long that you are bound to find your own private slice of beachy goodness.

Koh Kood

Trat Province, Thailand

For any of us that have had the pleasure of island hopping in Thailand, it’s a known fact that the country is full of mind-blowing beaches that look just like the postcards!

Other Finest Destinations in the Atlantic Ocean of Argentina


Gran Canaria, Spain

One of the most unique beaches is Maspalomas. This Spanish spectacle is one of the most popular destinations in the Canary Islands, thanks to its miles of dunes that resemble the Sahara. There are over three km. of the grainy stuff to explore in this nature reserve, and where it meets the Atlantic Ocean you’ll find a lively resort.

Ocracoke Island

North Carolina, USA

Ocracoke Island, located in the barrier islands of North Carolina, offers large, surf-quality waves and excellent swimming opportunities. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore offers several lifeguarded beaches, including this 16-mile stretch at Ocracoke Island. In addition to surfing and swimming, this beach offers excellent shell collection opportunities. Beaches at the island's North Point are virtually deserted, perfect for a long seaside walk. After a big storm, you are likely to find shells along the shore.

Baia do Sancho

Fernando de Noronha, Brazil

Located on an archipelago off the northeast coast of Brazil, this beach is a stunning short stretch of sand with placid waters. It can be reached by boat or by climbing down the steep rocky slopes.

Swimming Tips For Beginners

Take It One Step At A Time
Trying to make technique changes is difficult and can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Focus on one thing at a time until you are nailing it, and then move on to the next thing.
Use a Neutral Head Position
Keep your head in line with the rest of your body and look directly at the bottom of the pool. When swimming in freestyle, many people tend to look forward rather than down. The problem with this approach is that it can cause the legs and hips to drop.
Get Feedback
Our biases are nearly countless. They exaggerate our fears, downplay our strengths, and make us think that we worked harder on that set than we actually might have. They extend to how we view our technique, as well.
Measure And Progress
Swimming is a sport of numbers. Stroke counts, stroke rates, intervals and heart rates all add up for a statistician’s dream come true. More importantly, they give you very specific, measurable benchmarks that you can work on progressing and improving over time.
