1) Thailand

Thailand is home to some of the world's most pristine beaches and its travel borders are fully reopened from 1st October 2022. While this is not the peak season for beach stays in Thailand (do check out respective locations for the ideal period for stay or activities), a quiet getaway at a hillside resort is never a bad idea!  Phuket, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Koh Samui are just some of the beach locales popular with visitors.  

2) Hawaii

This island destination needs no introduction. One of the most popular vacation spots in the United States with its stunning landscapes and picturesque sea views, Hawaii has fully opened its borders to tourists, but as with any travel destination, do check the local entry requirements.  

3) Singapore

The island nation of Singapore was one of the first countries globally to open its borders to travellers. With strict vaccination controls and world class healthcare, it's no wonder Singapore managed to control the spread of Covid-19 and allow border openings very early in the game. Our top pick for a fun filled island getaway stay would be *drumrolls* Sentosa. With hiking activities, exclusive resort hotels, Universal Studio Theme Park and plenty of good food, chic bars, live up the ultimate beach life at Sentosa. 

4) Malaysia

There are famous beach destinations dotted along both the east and the west coast of Malaysia, you simply need to take your pick. From Langkawi, Penang, Pangkor Island, Tioman, Redang to Perhentian Islands, you're just spoilt for choice in Malaysia when it comes to beach stays. There's also plenty of glorious food everywhere you go - did you know that Malaysia is known to have some of the BEST food in the whole wide world? Food + beach + friendly folks = perfect vacation. 

As with any beach vacation, we highly recommend a good pair of rubber flip-flops. Get Flips at its best now with the year-end flip-flop sale. For updates on future promotions by Flips you can sign-up here.
