Summer Destination

May 29, 2017

Do you already know where to spend your holiday this summer?

Take a glimpse at some of our top recommended locations and their vegan food options to spend your summer without problems.

 

Marrakech, Morocco

What is there not to love about Marrakech!? This city is an abundance of colors and fabrics, an endless maze of souks, and with many mosques, palaces and gardens to keep you exploring for days on end. Be sure to avoid the warmer months, as Marrakech experiences extremely high temperatures year-round. Watch out for the snake charmers in the Djemaa el-Fna!

Don’t carry all your money around with you for obvious safety reasons but you’ll get quite a lot for your money with the Moroccan Dirham’s, and if you’re eating out at simple restaurants in the city the food is relatively cheap so don’t carry around more than you need!

The food as long as it’s hot and freshly cooked is usually okay to eat anywhere. Try and eat local cuisine as it’s always going to be better and is likely to be the freshest items on the menu. Try the food at the night market and also at the cafes overlooking the main square, they’re all delicious and much cheaper than eating at the more upmarket restaurants that are predominantly located in the new town or at the luxury hotels. Check out the top 10 best vegan restaurants in Marrakech. 

 

Ubud, Indonesia

Bali and specifically Ubud on the Island of the Gods is known for yoga, meditation, and healthy food. You can easily find fresh juices, young coconuts, various kinds of cuisines and desserts to enjoy. 

Keeping in mind that in the Hindu culture a significant majority of people eat vegetarian or vegan and that Bali is the only Hindu island in Indonesia (all others are Muslim). You’ll find some dietary sensitivity here that you wouldn’t necessarily find in many parts of the world, and which makes it super easy for a vegan to navigate!

 

 

Zakynthos, Greece

Situated on the northwest shore of the island of Zakynthos, Navagio beach — also popularly known as Shipwreck Beach — is one of the most photographed beaches in the world. And this is not random at all, as the steep limestone cliffs, white sands, crystal clear waters and the incredible abandoned shipwreck stuck in the sand create an extraordinary scenery. The location is also a favorite spot for base jumpers, as the view from above is mesmerizing! You can only access the beach by boat unless you are a base jumper, in which case you can jump from the cliff and smoothly land on the soft sands!

Zakynthos is not the only cool destination to visit. There are so many different island and beaches with amazing landscape, but almost everyone in Kefalonia says that Myrtos beach is the best beach in the Greek Islands. The aerial beach view has graced so many advertorial campaigns of Greece and has been the face of many postcards of Kefalonia.

Cape Town, South Africa 

Cape Town is fondly regarded by locals and visitors alike as the world’s prettiest city – all because of that iconic blend of where the city meets the sea, and nature plays a key part in the lives of locals. If you like hiking, you’ll love making your way up the famous Table Mountain and the many activities on offer around Cape Town.

There’s no point coming to Cape Town if you don’t have some form of interaction with the glorious natural wonder that is Table Mountain. Whether you choose to climb the mountain, take the cable car (around $25 return), or appreciate it from afar, this is without a doubt the most popular must do attraction in Cape Town.

As more and more people embrace a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, so more and more restaurants and cafes open their doors. We went looking for some of the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Cape Town, and we found some great eateries 

 

 

Plenty of people fly to Puerto Rico and never go beyond the confines of their resort. Sometimes you need a getaway where you do nothing.

But if you want more than just a beach, Puerto Rico has it all. If you’re visiting for just a few days, like I was, you can easily fit in beach time, adventure time, culture time, and yes, even hanging-out-at-the-pool time

  1. You don’t need your passport — a license or ID is all you need to fly.
  2. The currency is the U.S. dollar.
  3. While Spanish is the main language of the island, English is widely spoken, and everyone in the tourism industry speaks English.

The vegan food options, however, are not so varied (at least if you want to eat traditional Puerto Rican food, that is). Puerto Rican cuisine, referred to as “cocina criolla” by the locals, is typically very meat heavy. 

That said, there are some vegetarian and vegan-friendly Puerto Rican foods that you can find almost anywhere.
