Tropical Vacation Ideas

For a very secluded tropical vacation spot, consider the Maldives. This is an isolated group of small islands out in the Indian Ocean between India and Malaysia. Of the one thousand or so islands, about 90 are inhabited and offer tourist accommodations.

One of the main attractions here is the excellent diving. The island group consists of many coral reefs that enclose deep lagoons. These make great dive spots. The water is warm and clear and teeming with tropical marine life.

The atolls also provide a wonderful place for snorkeling as well as lots of other water activities. Surfing here is world-class, especially during the June through September monsoon season.

As for accommodations, the budget conscious will find many reasonably priced guest houses available. Two examples are the Abalone Tourist Inn and the Champa Moon Guest House.

There are some mid-priced hotels and then there are many first class luxury resorts. The Banyan Tree, Bathala Island Resort and One & Only Reethi Rah are a few of the excellent vacation resorts in the Maldives


Sanibel Island is a good spot to enjoy a tropical island getaway without leaving the U.S. Sanibel is down along the southwest coast of Florida near Naples and Fort Meyers. The beaches here are the rival of any beach in the world and you have the warm tropical climate you are looking for.

If you enjoy collecting sea shells, the Sanibel beaches are famous for their colorful and plentiful shells. And besides the beaches you have lots of things to do. There are plenty of luxury accommodations, great shopping and restaurants.

Explore the island on a bicycle, visit the National Wildlife Refuge & Bird Sanctuary, hit the links on one of the dozens of golf courses, photograph the wildlife, take an island boat cruise and so many other activities.

Try are a romantic cruise with Captiva Cruises. They can be found at South Sea Plantation Marina on Captiva Island which is adjacent to Sanibel Island and reachable by road.

They can also take you out to see dolphins, explore the nearby coastal islands or take you to Cayo Costa State Park where the beach shelling is exceptional.
