Love Bodyboarding? Here Are The Top Destinations

Bodyboarding is a super accessible form of surfing and ideal for people who want to get out on the water and start having fun immediately. What’s more, you can pretty much do it anywhere. Bodyboarding is just as fun off the coast of northern Europe as it is in Bali (although some locations are colder than others. You have been warned).

Paradise for Everyone

Written in cooperation with Hipmunk’s Boutique Hotels campaign. 

The Hawaiian Islands have long been considered paradise. After all, this is the place to enjoy lovely temperatures, stunning beaches, aquamarine water, and tropical drinks, all without a passport. Paradise often comes with a price tag, but Hipmunk offers a multitude of reasonably priced accommodation options, making paradise available for everyone.

Each Hawaiian island offers something different. From Oahu’s cityscape and amazing beaches to Kona’s black volcanic sand to Maui’s powder-white sand and world-class snorkeling, this exotic state offers something for everyone.

Paradise in the City

To make the most of paradise on a budget, check out the Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki. This budget-friendly hotel offers up kitchenettes, laundry services, and a poolside barbecue area, all while keeping your expenses in check. The property features a pool, a fitness center, spa services, a restaurant, and free breakfast, allowing you to save your entertainment dollars for sightseeing and nights out on the town.

Another affordable option is the Maile Sky Court Hotel. Located near all the preferred sights in Waikiki, this hotel has comfortable rooms with refrigerators, along with free Wi-Fi, a pool, a restaurant, and a fitness center. A short walk takes you to all the excitement in one of the most scenic cities in the world.

For guests who want a bit more of a splurge, the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki is an excellent choice. The rooms offer stunning city views, refrigerators, robes and slippers, and even in-room massage services for an extra charge. This hotel has free Wi-Fi, a pool and fitness area, and an on-site restaurant. It’s also well-known for its soothing spa treatments.

Search for Volcanoes

The island of Kona is unique in that it has an active volcano at its center. Rather than the soft, white sand of the other islands, Kona has black sand resulting from thousands of years of volcanic activity. To visit this amazing paradise for yourself, look into the Kona Seaside Hotel. One of the most affordable hotels on the island, it offers a pool and rooms overlooking the sea. Rooms are bright and comfortable, with refrigerators, microwaves, and flat-screen TVs. Enjoy the pool and fitness area and the free Wi-Fi and breakfast to stretch your vacation dollars even further.
