My Beach Bucket List


The just do-it list for beach bunnies

24 days until I leave for my glorious cruise through the Southern Caribbean with Princess Cruise Line...and I'm revisiting my very special bucket list.

Beach Bucket ListBeach Bucket ListEveryone has a bucket list, and while Mount Everest might bring your cubicle buddy to his knees, GoGirlfriend is beach-powered. Say what you will, we're happy to indulge in beach yoga followed by tequila-doused shrimp and a massage by Pablo while others scale mountains.



Wanna see our beach bucket list? Warning, you may have to rewrite your list after seeing these...

St. Martin

Strip away your top, your bottoms, your cares. While the scenery on this beach can be stunning (pun intended), we want to revisit the island for the fresh lobster at the Yellow Beach Bar. It's on Pinel Island, a 10 min boat ride from the French side of the island. While the service can be slow, the turquoise waters and white sand should uncoil even the most uptight beach-goer. And If you dare, crack open your claw in the altogether. This is St. Martin, after all.


There are enough beaches on this island to fulfill almost all our beach fantasies (except for the ones we dreamed up on St Martin). Half Moon Bay tops our list though. Getting there involves a lot of direction-asking - a plus - and once you arrive, it's all but deserted - another big plus. If your beach-bucket list involve you and your lover stretched out for hours on a glorious beach, move this one to the top of the list.


While the rest of the world imagines sexy, Brazil lives it. More than 250 miles of sculpted coastline filled with hidden coves perfect for hiding away from the paparazzi. Cameras not trained on your back, 24/7? No worries. Even hermit crabs adore beaches here for simple, hedonistic pleasure of all that is Brazil. Be warned though that Brazil beaches are all about the eco-friendly and sunscreen is not permitted on most. Guess you'll just have to cover up with something else - like your partner maybe.

What's on your beach-bucket list? Any beaches on the list that you've already visited - but can't resist visiting again and again and again?
