If you’re one of those who can’t stand the cold, then it’s time to get summer back into action. In this post, we’ve listed some of the best beach locations around the world where it is possible to receive nothing sunshine and warm breezes during the harsh freezing season.

1. Kailua-Kona

This is Hawaii’s youngest and largest island, which the temperature at night during winter hardly goes below 70 degrees and daytime temperatures average in the low 80s. In Hawaii, winter is usually the season for humpback whale watching and is one of the best leisure activities on the beach after hiking to the nearby Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary or snorkeling with sea turtles along Kahalu’u Beach.


For excellent accommodations, we recommend the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, which is a beautiful paradise that rests along the Kona-Kohala Coast. It boasts an award-winning golf course that spans 865 meters, restaurants, spa and accommodations among other features that you need to see for yourself.

2. Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is the largest of the Cayman Islands that receives year-round temperatures in the 80s and is also where one of the world’s famous Caribbean beaches reside: the Seven Mile Beach. During winter, some of the island’s most popular events are hosted, including Eric Ripert’s Cayman Cookout and the comedy/music festival Kaaboo.

Grand Cayman is particularly known for its unique blend of sincere hospitality and elegant luxury. Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa evokes both of the aforementioned qualities within its 266-room complex. The resort resides right on Seven Mile Beach, where its open-air architecture makes it an ideal location for the soft Cayman breeze.

3. Pensacola Beach

For a beach destination that consists of temperatures that dip below 60 during the cold months, the residents of Pensacola Beach may pull out their winter coats from now and then. Even so, the sunny days and mild weather are just the right features to help you thaw out from your snowy regions up north. There are lots to do at the beach; you can go kayaking in the bay, hike up around Fort Pickens, or go snorkeling off the protected shorelines of Gulf Islands National Seashore.

If you really want to rest at a good place with a killer view, we recommend booking a room at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Hotel. It’s located directly on the beach, has over 275 rooms, features an indoor pool, two outdoor pools in which one is heated and an outdoor hot tub.

4. St. Martin and St. Maarten

St. Martin/St. Maarten is indeed a warm spot to zone out and get loose, but it also has over 300 restaurants that have crowned this place the culinary capital of the Caribbean. The island is half French and half Dutch where 37 white sand beaches cross borders between the two countries (Franch and Netherlands).

A billionaire like Dmitry Rybolovlev would easily have the time of his life here, especially at the popular Belmond’s La Samanna resort. It has over 83 rooms and suites and 8 separate four-bedroom villas. It is also just as well-known for its luxury spa offerings and pristine beachfront location as it is for its renowned restaurant L’Oursin.

5. Punta Gorda

If you don’t like being in crowded locations and just want to relax for however long it takes before you go back home, then we would suggest heading off to Punta Gorda. It’s a relatively quiet spot compared to the other beaches of Belize Placencia and Hopkins. It sits in the southern portion of the country with secluded shorelines and 85-degree weather. There is even a fishing village by trade in which guests can engage in catch-and-release fly fishing trips, explore the waterfalls in Rio Blanco National Park, lounge on the beach or take a peaceful trip through the low-trafficked Mayan ruins at Lubaantun.

The Copal Tree Lodge is a luxury eco-resort that sits in the heart of the rainforest, with a passion for preserving the land where it is situated. 70% of the food there is organic, including vegetables, fruits, chocolate, eggs, chicken and more.
