Getting a sunburn is savvy because sun is potentially more destructive than the good old days. But there are good places in the world where you can get yourself a good tan without risking your health. Listed below are some of the destinations in the world where you can get a good sunburn.


Sand can reflect more than 25% of the sun’s rays and this is why beaches are a good place to get yourself a sunburn. Sand and sun can guarantee a good sunburn and that’s what makes Hawaii so special. Hawaii has plenty of stunning beaches that will drive you crazy.


Australia is considered as the capital of skin cancer and this is why Australia has its own beach motto – “slip, slop, slap, seek, slide”. If you are planning to get a sunburn in Australia, don’t forget to slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade and slide on sunnies.


In the far south of the American continent, Patagonia is a wild paradise, full of life. Although the sunshine here is not as bright as the other places listed, the dry wind in Patagonia is great for the skin.

The Caribbean

Nothing feels heavenly than dipping in crystal clear water after hours of baking in the sun. The only fact you have to keep in mind is that you are more likely to get burnt in the water than out. Yes it sounds weird but due to the reflectiveness of the clear water and the sand, the UV intensity can be increased up to 60%!
