Beach Travel Guide

What to expect on a Beach experience with Adventure Life
Adventure Life offers so many varieties of beach vacations that no two trips are alike. Your itinerary and activities depend largely on what type of experience you're looking for and your destination. We specialize in cruises, but we have also hand-crafted land-based tours. Here are a few featured highlights of most of our beach adventures:
  • Relaxation - No matter which beach you visit, we know that you're aiming for relaxation, so you will have a flexible itinerary that allows you to soak in the sun on your yacht's panoramic sun deck or the sun-kissed golden & white sands of the beaches.
  • Snorkeling - Our featured destinations are home to the most vibrant reefs and marine diversity in the ocean, and snorkeling puts swimmers of all levels right in these stunning habitats. Snorkels and wetsuits are provided by your tour operators.
  • Sea Kayaking - If you want to see the marine life from a different perspective, make your way over the crystal clear turquoise waters in a kayak, also provided by your tour operator.
  • Jungle Exploration - Just beyond the beaches, many tropical landscapes transform into dense jungles that are teeming with fascinating animals and make for great hikes.
Where can you enjoy a tropical beach vacation?
  • South Pacific - Over 20,000 islands dot this expansive blue, and we offer adventures to some of the most isolated and idyllic ones!
  • Galapagos Islands - Considered a living laboratory for its wealth of unique endemic and native species, you can experience the same beautiful archipelago that Charles Darwin did when he surveyed the Galapagos in 1835. 
  • Central America - The classic beaches of the Caribbean and Pacific await with promises of relaxation and adventure all in one.
  • Asia - Bali is a tropical island located 125 miles off the coast of Java and offers a variety of activities to enjoy on your beach vacation such as scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, and surfing. 
  • Africa - Escape to peaceful beaches, exotic wildlife, and some of the world's most beautiful landscapes. Zanzibar and Madagascar are two of the most popular locations for a tropical beach vacation. 
But our beach destinations aren't just limited to the tropics! If you want a truly unique beach vacation but you're not committed to water sports, then consider a signature Antarctica cruise or navigation of the Northwest Passage to see the wildlife and ice-bound shores of the polar regions.
