Beach Holiday: Different Shades on the Beach!

Globally, beach vacations are the most favoured type of holiday. And it gets even better if the destination is a tropical paradise.

Beach holidays are one of my favourites too. They offer a great deal of options to all kinds of tourists.

Whether you are a solo traveller, backpacker, a couple or a family, there is something definitely in store for you.

One of my favourite pastimes while I spent my vacation at Havelock Island was to make a note of all the beach activities that tourists engage in during a beach vacation. Havelock Island is considered the jewel in the tropical Andaman paradise.

Since the waters were very alluring and offered excellent marine life sightings, most of the tourists spent their time in water. Some engaged in adventure sports like scuba diving, snorkelling, while others swam and played water games.

Some engaged in less strenuous work like reading a book on the beach and under the shade of a tropical tree. Some took to taking long walks on the beach during sunrise and sunset times.

Kids built sand castles. Teenagers played frisbee, beach volleyball or beach cricket. At other times, people would take a boat and go on a long fishing trip. When these folks were not on the beach, they were exploring the colourful markets, tasting some local brew and sampling some tasty local cuisine.
