AllyToullec: Pattaya. And the islands around. Disguting beaches with fat Russians and English middle aged men. Found a condom in the see as well
GFexplorers: Bondi? Am I allowed to say that? Its just a normal beach, right? Do you have to be a surfer to truly appreciate it?!

- packDsuitcase: Mykonos… go to Santorini instead
theridingdutch: Kuta Beach in Bali,,, no doubt about that
