What’s a tropical summer without an escape to the beach?

With the scent of the salty sea hanging in the air, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, and the sun shining in all its golden glory in the clear blue sky, getting a good dose of vitamin sea on your much-deserved holiday is always a good idea, especially if it means getting direct access to the beach 24/7.
