The world's best waterside spots to practice meditation

Escape from daily routine with our selection of 3 amazing spots where you can meditate alone, with friends, or even with family.

Meditation has become one of the best ways to disconnect from stressful everyday life. Just closing your eyes and concentrating on your breathing allows your mind to relax and travel to a faraway, calm place. If your thoughts often take you someplace where your feet are in the sand, a warm breeze is blowing through your hair, and the sun is kissing your face, then read on to discover 3 idyllic destinations where those daydreams can become reality and you can meditate on a real, actual beach.

MEDITATE ALONE AT: THE ADMIRAL

If you’re adventurous and looking for a unique getaway, the Admiral yoga cruise is for you. Hop on board of a wooden yacht that sails around the Turkish Mediterranean coast and participate in the morning and evening yoga classes that are offered – it will bring relaxation to a whole new level.

The added bonus: You’ll have a beautiful new view every day while you meditate.

MEDITATE WITH FRIENDS AT: CAMPS BAY

Camps Bay is a white sand beach located in South Africa. The "12 Apostles" mountains in the background and beautiful surroundings allow you to feel instantly relaxed and they offer peace and tranquility, making it an ideal location for meditation.

The added bonus: Every October there’s a Full Moon Meditation at Camps Bay, an event where hundreds of people gather and meditate together to celebrate the full moon.

MEDITATE WITH YOUR FAMILY OR SIGNIFICANT OTHER AT: MAYA TULUM

Located in the middle of the Yucatán Peninsula, south-west of Mexico, the Maya Tulum Resort is a little piece of paradise. The typical program consists of meditating with your feet in the sand while looking out at the ocean, and getting gently rocked to relaxation by the sound of the waves.

The added bonus: The Maya Tulum Resort offers yoga retreats for parents and kids. It’s a great opportunity for the family to spend quality time together in a unique way.

Get packing to meditate and relax in a dream location!
