Everyone is excited about cold weather coming but it won’t be long before we’re all craving longer days, the warm sunshine and white sandy beaches. Thankfully, there are many tropical paradise options that deliver on those ideas year round. When you look online to book that perfect trip, it’s easy to get overwhelmed at all the options.

Is that beach really pristine? Is that hotel really that nice? Is the sand really that white and powdery?

The World’s Whitest Sand Beaches…

This means that depending on where you are on the islands, about 100 yards off shore, there’s a drop off that goes about a mile down to the ocean floor.
