There’s more to Gran Canaria than Mas Palomas, but you can’t go on vacation on this volcanic island without a visit to this popular tourist attraction. Walk through the huge dunes to get to the white sand beach on a hot afternoon and you’ll start to feel like you’re in the Sahara – I know, because I’ve done just that.
Zakynthos is an extinct volcanic island with stunning coastal cliff views, white sand and volcanic beaches, juxtaposition of ancient with modern Greek architecture, lush landscapes and vineyards, Greek traditions, cuisine and culture!
Seriously, if you don’t have the Nā Pali Coast in Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i on your travel bucket list, then you really should add it! Hike 2 miles of the Kalalau Trail from Ke’e Beach to Kalalau Beach for exhilarating coastal views and then another 2 miles to Hanakapi’ai Falls.
