Subject: Re: jamaica
would have to say that the best beach and resort we have ever
would be Sans Souci Lido in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. It is an all
resort and spa. The service there was the best I have ever
food was delicious and plentiful, and the beaches and cliffs
taking. What else could you ask for!
to give you a little more information on Sans Souci Lido...
It is a
"Super Clubs, Super-inclusive resort". So everything that
imagine is included, from room service to private boat excursions.
even did our laundry and ironing. They had planned snorkeling
diving trips a couple times a day. I believe that any travel
know about super clubs resorts, give them a call because we
got a free
video to check it all out.
were there for 7 nights in mid August and flew from Atlanta
paid around $4,000-$5,000. But we paid nothing else while
we were there
except for a few T-Shirts.
can't wait to get back there.

Subject: Best beach ?????
Have been on beaches all over the world and have found a bit
of Hades in every Eden. Camping on the beach in New Zealand
( the same beach where they filmed THE PIANO) was spectacular
and wildly invigorating. But there were black flies in the
day and mosquitoes at night. Wonderful beaches on 300+ islands
in Los Roques off of Venezuela with white sand and crystal
waters, but no fresh water or habitations. So you had to have
a boat to live on.
All ok, but I may have found the best of all worlds in Bali.
One of the Puri Bagus hotels located just out of Candidasa,
Bali is located on a lovely white sand beach with great diving
just offshore and misty islands in the distance. Beautiful
hotel with duplex cottages set in tropical gardens and moderately
priced. Best of all is the professional hot, scented oil massage
on the beach for $4.00 US/hour.
Subject: Bamburgh Beach in England.
I found the link to your great site in one our newspapers
here in England...you run a great site - what a great idea
for all beachlovers the world over..
My favourite beach in the world is right here in England -
it's at a place called Bamburgh, in the county of Northumbria
- look at a map of England, it's on the top right-hand side,
just below Scotland - to get there I have to drive 200 + miles
from my home in Manchester, but it's worth every minute of
..the skyline's dominated by Bamburgh Castle, dating back
1300 years, the beach is white "squeaky" sand, backed by sand
dunes ranging in height from 6 feet to 60 feet - and, this
being England, most times the weather's not too good - but
that just adds to the dramatic picture that this favourite
beach of mine creates..
The water's cold, cold, cold - the sea is the North Sea -
next stop Norway & Sweden - but, the whole area's a haven
for wildlife - bird colonies & gray seal communities living
on the nearby islands..
And, if u like surfing, this beach is the business - it doesn't
work that often, but when it does -
* WOW *
It's pretty unpopulated - that's about as crowded as it gets
- I've been there on a Saturday in the middle of July and
counted about 20 people - all on a beach that stretches for
4 miles !
Hope you liked my story about Bamburgh beach -If u want to
know more, let me know...
Keep up the good work - life's a beach...

Thanks for the info . We'll share it Margarita Ville.
Subject: Re: Tulum
Hola, Just returned yesterday from the Tulum area. We had
reservations at ZAMAS and stayed there 3 nites. Then We went
up and the road looking for new digs ,mainly because we wanted
a nicer /more kid friendly beach.We ended up at TITA TULUM.
5 of us (incl.my husband & I ,my mom and 2 kids) stayed in
1 room there right on the beach for $50. U.S. / nite. Ditmar,
who runs the place didn't care how many of us there were in
one room- even though there were only 2 double beds. My husband
planned on sleepingon the porch in a hammmock, but gave up
1/2 way thru the night and squeezed in with me and our young
son.The hammocks there are nylon and small- not good enough
for sleeping . After that we put my son on a lounge chair
at night blankets underneath for padding. Anyway, the beach
there is wide ,gorgeous ,mild surf and almost deserted.WE

Thanks for the note on your trip to the Tulum area. We'll
share it with the readers of our magazine in Margarita Ville.
The next time you go to the Yucatan, consider staying at our
friend's house in Celestun. A week is just $300.

Subject: Beaches of Australia
Dear fellow beach lovers ..
are amongst the greatest race of beach people in the world...
after all we have 14,000 miles of coastline and beaches that
run unbroken places for over 100 miles.
greatest concentration of beaches and resorts are on the east
coastland perhaps the better known and utilized are
Sydney in NSW to the Sunshine Coast (north of Brisbane) in
South East Queensland.
are generally pretty easy going and togs (swimming costumes)are
usually very brief (topless is OK on most beaches) and there
are many nude beaches.
of the most popular areas is Noosa (which is Australia's most
desirable holiday destination) on the Sunshine Coast 150 km
north of Brisbane. The accommodations here are mostly
condo's but there are a couple of Hotels(4 and 5 star).
The standard of Australian Condos is really good.
has several beach areas including the world famous nude beach
at Alexandria Bay. A-bay as the locals call it is in
the Noosa National Park .. you can see much of the local fauna
in the wild here including Koala's.
a look a what Noosa has to offer by starting HERE. Anyone
wanting further info can email us. Have to go now ....
the beach is calling.
Re: Barbuda - The best beaches in the Caribbean
I would like to know if anyone has previously written about
or even visited Barbuda, the sister island of Antigua. It
has the most deserted, naturally beautiful and spectacularly
long beaches in the Eastern Caribbean. Many people who have
visited the Caribbean islands and who have traveled to other
beaches in the world say that none compare to the beaches
here. It is still relatively undiscovered and has only three
hotels, two of which are as spectacularly expensive as the
beach they are on.
The rest of the island is as natural as the day it was made,
lots of different kinds of water, the rough Atlantic side
and the calm Caribbean sea. It is great for children, lots
of rock pools to explore and perfect for couples who want
to be the only ones on the beach, but there is very little
shade and no facilities at all so if you like cold drinks
or deck chairs you have to bring your own. I could write a
more detailed account of the island if it is of interest,
as I live here in Barbuda, in the meantime I await your reply.
E-mail Claire Frank
if you've been to Barbuda or have questions for him.
the Beach replies :We'd
love to have more from you on Barbuda. Tell us about a perfect
day there for you, how did you come to live there, and are
there any nude beaches?
