The beach promises a full day of leisure. Whether you spend it relaxing on the shore or splashing in the waves, these five tropical destinations will accommodate any level of intensity. Wade in the surf of Oahu’s North Shore, relish in the privacy of the Whitsundays Islands, or soak in Costa Rica’s rich greenery. Whichever you choose, lather on the sunscreen, adjust your shades, and sink your toes in the sand.
