Exotic Beach Holyday in the second half of August

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We’re a couple in our late 20’s living in the North-East looking for a beach holiday in the second half of August. We could go for up to 14 days. We play to spend at least half the day relaxing on the beach (sand is very important). The other half would probably be exploring around in a slow pace. We would like to go to an exotic place.
We usually tend to avoid going on holidays in July/August because of crowds but have no choice this year .

In my opinion, the different choices are :

Hawaii (2 islands in 2 weeks)

California (Beaches and Napa Valley doable?)

The Caribbean (Bahamas, Aruba or St-Martin). Not sure of hurricane season and humidity. We usually go there one week during winter.

Europe (Portugal, Croatia…). August crowds to avoid?

I think that Portugal or Hawaii would be my top 2 choices.
Any help on the destination would be much appreciated.
