This week’s question comes from Jennifer, who’s looking to take her travel adventures beyond Europe.
Hi, I’m a lone traveller, not particularly young, but have travelled all my life, mostly through Europe. Do you have any suggestions of other places outside of Europe that I could go? Nothing too simple/basic though please as I like to travel comfortably. Jennifer.
Say no more Jennifer, Amy is on the case. Let’s see what she’s got up her sleeve for you…
Yosemite National Park.
There’s no better feeling than finding yourself laying out in front of the sea, music playing, cocktail in hand, watching the world go by and enjoying maximum chill time.
If you’re dreaming of travelling, it’s likely that this kind of scene regularly features in your plans, and there are some pretty amazing places out there. So many in fact, that we’ve been inspired to create a list of our own favourites.
Our Pick of the World’s Best Beach Bars
Café Mambo, San Antonio, Ibiza
When it comes to the best beach bars in the world, there’s no way we could leave out Café Mambo in San Antonio, Ibiza. This place is legendary for 2 main reasons; 1) Superstar DJ’s use it as their warm for gigs at many of the big Ibiza club nights and 2) It’s the perfect spot to soak up what it probably one of the best, most atmospheric, sunsets in the world.
Expect it to be teeming with San Antonio’s cool crowd, so get there early if you want a comfy spot for the epic sunset.
