Finding a beach destination should never have to be complicated. It should only make you want to be more prepared for it, as well as make you want to be more excited for it.
Those being said, consider these when finding a beach destination:
Your Overall Budget
Just like anyone planning to have a vacation trip, you should consider your overall budget when finding a beach destination. Will it only be within a certain amount or will you allow yourself to go beyond a certain amount?
If it’s the first one, you need to be more mindful on the rates being posted. Some beaches have rates that can’t be computed until you get there, while others have rates that won’t be computed until the end of your stay.
If it’s the second one, you also need to be more mindful – but this time, on the possibilities of going way beyond a certain amount. While you’re allowed to go beyond a certain amount, you wouldn’t want to go way beyond that amount – to the point where you won’t even be able to buy a souvenir from your vacation trip.
Before you start a Maldives vs Hawaii debate with the person you’re going on a vacation trip with (or even with yourself), take a pause and consider the location of the beach you’re eyeing. Will it only be a few minutes away from your drop point or some hours away from your drop point?
If it’s the first one, you can proceed to plan for another destination you might want to visit aside from your main destination. You can either go on a side trip before going to the main destination or go on a side trip while you’re already in the main destination for some added thrill.
If it’s the second one, you can proceed to plan for another destination you might want to visit instead of your main destination. If you don’t have any, then by all means, go to the main destination. If you have any, then it’s time to plan for another destination that will not make you sleep almost the entire day while going there.
