Book a dose of vitamin sea – these beach trips are just what the doctor ordered.

Hear that shellphone ringing? It’s your cue to hit pause on the hustle and bustle and get some much-needed time near the water. Everyone could use a little sun, sand and surf to get you through the year. Roll out a long towel, slather on the sunscreen and shimmy into your swimsuit. Life’s a beach – or, at least, it could be if you’ve got a backpack and a passport. These Culture Trip tours deliver the beach therapy you need.

Polignano a Mare beach with town behind and green waters

Seductive Southern Italy

You’ll need more than an appetite for this ten-day tour of Southern Italy. ‘Eat, beach, repeat’ will be your mantra as you get more than your fill of sand, sauce, sun, and seafood. Street food in Naples, sunbathing in Positano. Bread baking in Altamura, swimming in Polignano a Mare. By the time you make it from the Amalfi Coast to Puglia, you’ll be so crisp, salty and warm that you’d think you were turning into a Neapolitan pizza.

Traditional sunset gathering on Playa Guiones beach, Nosara, Costa Rica

The Real Costa Rica

The best way to see Costa Rica is with your head in the cloud forest and your toes in the sand. Make your way from San Jose to the shores of Tamarindo, taking the jungle route, of course. Wildlife safaris and white-water rafting will get your muscles warmed up for a few days of wave riding. Surf the Pacific or sit back with a drink and watch from the sand. It’s all pura vida either way.
