There’s a beach for everyone: from the stunning sands of Latin America to the beautiful British coast, onwards to the Mediterranean’s best beach, and then down to a Pacific island paradise.

1 JANUARY – San Juan del Sur Bay, Nicaragua
Nicaragua may be a little unknown as a holiday destination but at this time of year is bathing in sunshine and you could be too on their beaches. The San Juan del Sur Bay beach has a dazzling horseshoe shape of muted beige soft sand that is overlooked by a giant statue of Jesus perched north of the bay. The waters around here are calm and very rarely get large enough to surf, making this an ideal beach for young families. For surfers, there’s the Playa Madera’s a little further along.
There are plenty of fine eateries from which you can enjoy a most delightful sunset. And after sundown, there’s a fun vibe of a busy nightlife to enjoy.
