Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In Search of the Perfect Beach

Speaking of the beach...

This is a good time of year to start thinking about the beach and maybe make some plans.

If, like me, you're on a lifelong quest to find the perfect beach, a handy resource is The 100 Greatest Beach Vacations by Irene Korn. You may know Korn as the author of Citadel Press's Starting a Home-Based Business. Obviously, she manages to get out of the house sometimes too.

Ten chapters offer a page or so on each of ten beaches and include both domestic and foreign locales. The first four chapters cover spots for families, singles, couples, and "alternative" beaches, which means clothing-optional, nude, gay, and, well, Venice Beach in Southern California.

Six more chapters make excellent suggestions for special interests: surfing, scuba diving and snorkeling, ecotourism, sightseeing, glamour, and "unique opportunities," which includes such spots as Komodo Island (of dragons fame) in Indonesia, Santorini in Greece, Cuba's Playas del Este, and Israel's Dead Sea. Yes, that Dead Sea.

Like diving? You probably know Cozumel and the Cayman Islands, but what about Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt or Gozo, Malta? Ecotourists may know Lanai in the Hawaiian Islands, but Vieques off Puerto Rico and Dominica in the Caribbean are interesting, too.

From Positano to Palm Cove to Punalu'u, from Easter Island to Estoril to East Hampton, from South Padre Island to Stanley Bay to St. Tropez, Korn has plenty of good ideas. Begin with this book, find a few places that sound right for you, and thenlookinto those places in more depth. And start dreaming.
