Top Five Spots to Celebrate World Oceans Day

Sun, sand, and surf. All these wonderful gifts of the Earth can be found at the beach. And we’re not talking the modest lakes and rivers you can find just anywhere. We’re talking about the ocean. That’s why for this year’s 2016 World Oceans Day, we’re highlighting some of our best resorts which are located along some of the best beaches in the country.

Whether you’re an East Coast or West Coast traveller, there’s always something new to explore. The Atlantic and Pacific oceans are very different, which means that you’ll always find something new on each coast.

But don’t think that World Oceans Day means just hanging out at the beach. The holiday is a celebration of our precious Earth and all the great species that inhabit it. At these five resorts, you’ll find something ocean-related that will help turn your relaxing vacation into supporting a great cause. Visit an aquarium, go on a whale-watching adventure, or kick back on a sandy beach and marvel at the beautiful body of water. Here are our top five oceanside resorts you should consider visiting in celebration of World Oceans Day:

Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort — Cancun, Mexico

Cancun beach panorama, Mexico

First up on the list is Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort. Aside from having “ocean” in the name of the oceanside resort, the property offers some fantastic activities for those dying to spend time on or in the water. A number of restaurants are located on the waterfront, and the resort is close to some great snorkeling and scuba diving locations in the pristine Caribbean Sea. Of course, nothing beats laying out a blanket on one of the many beaches available. Cancun is a location where the phrase “beach bum” is a term of endearment.

Lawai Beach Resort — Koloa, HI

Exotic, beautiful and secluded beach with palm trees in the foreground and the sea. The beach is deserted

Situated off the coast of the mainland surrounded by the warm Pacific Ocean is the city of Koloa.
