Crashing ocean waves, salt air, and sandy beaches soothe your soul, Cancer. You could sit and listen to the sounds of the ocean all day – though you also like to swim in it as well!
One of your favorite past times is watching the sunset over the Pacific ocean, followed by dazzling moonlight reflected on the water. When you go on vacation, an ocean view is an absolute must!
Travel Next: Sonoma Coast or The Cook Islands
If you want to relax on your very own private patio overlooking the ocean… then Timber Cove Resort on the Sonoma Coast is a must. This dreamy resort has it all – forest hikes, coastline views, even whale watching from your own room!
If you’re looking for something with more of a tropical vibe… Rarotonga and Aitutaki in the Cook Islands in New Zealand are an incredible adventure. From night markets and waterfalls to a lagoon cruise in one of the most beautiful places in the world, you will fall in love with this tropical destination.
The Cook Islands At A Glance
Crystal clear blue lagoons, rugged green mountain tops, warm tropical breezes, fresh seafood… welcome to Rarotonga. You may recognize some of these islands from past seasons of Survivor, but you’ve absolutely seen photos of these bucket list beaches on Pinterest before. It’s the best place to come for a week of sand and sunshine.
- Where to stay: Near the town of Muri Beach is best so you are close to the action and swimmable lagoon.
- Best Time To Visit: I love summer for hot days, but it can rain this time of year. October-November are the dry months.
- Must Do Activity: Take a day trip to Aitutaki and do a lagoon cruise around the waters (seriously so dang pretty!!)
Timber Cove Sonoma Coast At A Glance
Northern California’s Sonoma Coast is rugged, green and absolutely serene. I love driving up Hwy 1 to stop at Bodega Bay’s taffy shop, Jenner Cafe for breakfast or lunch, maybe do some coastal trail hikes before landing at Timber Cove Resort for a night of tasty food and a sunset over the ocean.
- Best time to book a night: December – May for whale watching, though I went in June and saw whales right from our room’s patio!
- What To Do Around The Hotel: The property has a lot of walking trails, live music in the lobby and board games. Plus, tons of chairs outside so you can cozy up and watch the ocean.
