There is so much more to an Intrepid adventure than beaches, but mixing in a few incredible sunsets over the ocean or some R&R in a hammock, along with a healthy dose of culture and adventure, sounds pretty good to us. So here’s our list of the ultimate in sand, sun and surf. Even once your tan has faded, and the last grains of sand have dislodged from your shoes and your suitcase, you’ll savor these adventures forever.

And with everything going on in the world, it is more important than ever to tread lightly in these pristine corners of the world. Intrepid Travel is actively involved in sustainability projects to help protect our oceans, environments and wildlife. Intrepid Travel is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, we're the largest carbon-neutral travel company, and we support environmental organizations such as the Australia Conservation Foundation and SEE Turtles in Latin America.
