Gramlist Vibes: Mental Vacation Edition


There’s no shortage of sprawling, gorgeous coastline to visit, but some beaches are just plain better. Or more Instagrammable, at least. And because we’re stuck at work and need a mental break as the mercury drops, we used one of our favorite features: the good old-fashioned (LOL!) hashtag. We searched #beach, #52places (surfacing the NYT’s now-famous annual destinations list, #beachjunkie, and a few more. (#hashtagswork.)

So instead of scrolling by person, let’s take a dip into Instagram’s beaches by geotag. Here, five to visit when your mind is anywhere but on your meeting.

And on the subject of beach locations so remote as to be inaccessible, we have Lopes Mendes, on an island off the coast of Rio. The sand feels like flour under your feet, according to one Instagrammer who made the hours-long trek, boat ride, and hike.

It’s a giant sand dune, and that’s all you must know.

This one’s most visually flooring from the air, for its frosting-like whipped peaks of sand that melt right into turquoise water. Luckily, there are four miles in which to find your own isolated little piece of heaven.

A minimalist two-piece with a clean aesthetic in a quality fabric—and one of the few times cult-favorite Bikyni does a print. Don’t miss it.
