Beaches are probably the best getaway for a lot of people. Have birthday parties? Beach! Want a quiet escape from all the hectic workload? Beach! I mean beaches are a place that just makes everything better and the serene waters with birds chirping just lifts your spirits up.
Saying that – Pakistan might not be internationally popular for its beaches – but maybe that’s because they’ve never achieved the right exposure they deserved. The geographic and topographic location of the beaches also plays a crucial role in their anonymity.
While the masses in Pakistan opt to visit places like Thailand to enjoy good beach trips, Pakistan’s absolutely breathtaking and exotic beaches go unnoticed and that honestly, is pretty sad. They look the same, the water is just as cold there, the sand is just as golden and the feels are better and more homely than anywhere else in the world!
In a nutshell, Pakistan’s beaches are equally great as Thailands and here’s the evidence! Let’s take a look.
