But lets talk about the beaches for a moment. In Florida there are many beautiful beaches that people travel across the country...better yet the world to come see. South Beach, Daytona Beach, and Palm Beach are just a few of Florida's well known beaches. Little did you know Haiti is also home to some of the most beautiful beaches worldwide.
Recently, CNN published the results of an online survey to determine the World's 100 Best Beaches. Abaka Bay, located in Ile-a-Vache, Haiti was listed on the survey as the 57th most beautiful beach in the world. Although, I believe a recount is an order, it is an honor for the country nonetheless. A few other note worthy beaches are Cormier Beach, Chouchou Bay Beach, Ile-a-Rat, and of course the ever popular, Labadie. A travel destination for Royal Caribbean International since the early '80s, Labadee has drawn thousands of tourists to its beautiful beaches and lofty resorts. Most of these beaches offer a wide range of activities such as scuba diving and parasailing. And lets not forget the beach side lodgings and tiki bars.
People from all over the world can agree that there's nothing like a nice relaxing day at the beach. Some travel hundreds of miles to get to the nearest beach, others like myself jump on the highway and 15 minutes later are gazing at white sand and clear blue waters. Either way the next time you are thinking of a relaxing Caribbean escape think of Haiti, I know I will. Until then...
