Grab that bikini; it’s time to hit the beach
LONDON, Tuesday 29th May 2012
Hot on the heels of the highly successful Ski Hub released last year, Columbus Travel Media, producer of the worldtravelguide.net is pleased to announce the launch of its new Beaches Hub, a comprehensive collection of articles, tips, features and guides for aspiring beach bums everywhere.
Whether you’re a purist in search of a secluded island retreat to cleanse your body and mind, a sun worshipper looking for guaranteed rays throughout your stay or a family needing a child friendly resort where sand castle competitions are the order of the day – the new hub has the answers and the insight you are looking for.
The Beaches Hub offers guides for more than 100 beaches in 17 different countries. With useful information about resorts, feature stories and reviews, as well as activity ideas when venturing beyond the beach, the new hub is sure to help users plan their perfect beach holiday.
The World Travel Guide Beach Hub is presented in partnership with Club Med, a leading provider of all inclusive holidays worldwide. Club Med is proud to provide holidays at over 80 resorts on 5 continents in locations as far afield as Egypt, Thailand and the Bahamas. No matter what style of holiday you have in mind, Club Med is sure to offer the perfect fit.
With the Olympics just round the corner, Club Med are offering a plethora of activities this summer, with sports such as golf, tennis, horse riding, diving and even the flying trapeze to sample. And for the less energetic and more spectator-loving holidaymakers out there, many of Club Med’s resorts offer spa facilities as part of their packages.
While the Beaches Hub will appeal to travellers all year round, CTM have also introduced a specialised Olympics Hub to the WTG website for the run up to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympics events including interviews with top athletes such as Rebecca Adlington, well-known presenters such as Huw Edwards and Olympics boss Sebastian Coe. With these top names, the Olympics Hub offers top tips such as the best hotels to stay in during the Olympics, a round-up of key Olympic venues and how to make the most of a trip to London.
