A Look At Some Of The Most Visually Appealing Coastlines In The World

Lots of people travel abroad to that exotic, tropical beach to enjoy the warm water and sunny weather. However, many people avoid traveling to those off the map and sometimes not so off the map locations that are truly unique geologically and culturally. Here is a short description of some of the world’s most appealing coastlines that you can visit on your next trip abroad. You can witness spectacular man made wonders and geologic features that will leave you awed.

For a truly one of a kind and otherwordly experience visit the coastline of the Chilean city of Antofagasta. This coastline has unique natural formations and has flora and fauna from the mountains, sea and desert. Imagine three geologic features and climates converging on one coast and you have this one of a kind, spectacular coastline. The city of Antofagasta itself juts out from a mountain. The highlight of this area is called La Portada, a natural stone arc formation that protrudes from the sea.

The island of Corfu, Greece is more well known but has spectacular views and attractions. You will find a blend of British, Italian, Greek and French architecture that stands over clear blue Mediterranean waters. Evergreen mountains lined with unique and colorful homes that overlook the sea are a wonderful sight. After you enjoy the view, you can always take a swim or rest in a sheltered cove.

Australia has an oceanic rock formation known as the 12 apostles. They are found along the shipwreck trail of Australia so yachting there is not recommended. However, you can find incredible limestone cliffs that overlook the ocean. The 12 apostles refer to the groups of rock formations that seemingly warn ships to be careful when approaching the land. The more bold can scuba dive and explore ship wrecks as well as enter underwater caverns.

How to travel without burning a whole in your wallet

Summer is upon us, and the weather is perfect for traveling the world. It is time to get out of the house and explore places that have never been seen before. But wait, how can I travel the world if I do not have a six-figure salary?

You do not need a six-figure job to travel. There will always be vacation spots around the world that can be visited on a budget with proper planning. Here are some tips for traveling stress-free:

1) Take a day trip to a nearby park

When you take a small day trip you don’t have to worry about the extra hotel costs, meals, and gas tank fill-ups. Wake up early in the morning and drive to your destination. Then you can return home at night. Have all of your bags and snacks packed the night before so that you can make the most out of your travel day.

2) Travel with a larger group and split costs

Splitting the costs of expensive trips can end up saving each person in the group hundreds of dollars. If you are sharing a hotel or house with a group of family members or friends you can easily divide up the cost to rent the place. Take turns paying for meals. Whoever is not driving the vehicle has to pitch in a few extra dollars for gas.

3) Explore nature around you

Nature parks make for a great day trip. Most parks are free to get into and provide areas to swim, fish, hike, and sleep. It is easy to do a quick Google search for nearby recreation parks.

4) Look for online discounts

There are plenty of websites Groupon and LivingSocial offer deals and discounts for travelers. You can save money on cruises, amusement parks, and hotels.
