Planning your next trip is a stressful thing when you think that you have to find accommodation, tickets for transportation and what activities you can do in order to have an amazing and unforgettable vacation. However, the most important decision you have to make is to choose which place to go on your next vacation. This is a taught decision to make because both beach and mountainside have their charm and astonishing places to see. So, stick with us and let’s see together what are the pros and cons of both destinations and by the end of the article you will surely make up your mind easier.

Beach VS. snow which one to choose for your next trip


It might be an obvious aspect but you need to take into consideration more than the fact that one place is cold while the other one is hot. If you know you are really sensitive to the sunlight and you are incredibly prone to get a sunburn the minute you get on the beach, you should consider having a trip at the mountains where more layers of clothes are going to protect your skin from the sunlight. However, if your skin gets really dry and dehydrated because of the low temperatures and wind, choose the beach-type of vacation.  


Both of the destinations have amazing activities that you can do and enjoy your time there. If you are an adventurous person and like doing sport and trying experiences that bring you in peace with nature, the mountainside is the best option for you. There are many outdoor activities that you can do such as going skiing, snowboarding or go up on the top of the mountains with the cable cars to enjoy the breathtaking view and fresh air. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more relaxing type of vacation in a warm place that is all about having fun you can go at the beach and try surfing, fishing, ride a jet ski, or admire the ocean’s living creatures while doing scuba diving.  

Who is your companion?

Another aspect that you need to consider before making your choice is to think about who is going to be your companion for the trip. If you go by yourself, you can choose whatever you prefer according to your expectations and needs. However, when you are traveling with someone, you need to think about them as well. For example, if you travel with your kids, you might want to take into consideration which destination is better for their safety and health. It is true that mountain activities can be a bit dangerous for kids, but crowded beaches where they can get lost can also be a scarring thought when you think about their safety. So, talk with your companions as well and make sure that your choice is also suitable for them.

To sum up all the above, no matter which one you are going to choose is going to be an amazing vacation as long as you go for the one that will make you achieve your expectations for the trip. So, what’s it going to be?
