Coastal Travel

$1 per person

If the sound of the surf hitting the shore calls to you, Gerken Getaways is here to help make your dream a reality. From hiking along a Welsh Coastal Path to exploring beaches in the Caribbean, Tahiti or Costa Rica or Belize, we have coastal options available for you.

All my life I have lived near some form of water. Being close to the sea is the most relaxing way to vacation for me.

We have enjoyed all-inclusive properties in Mexico and Jamaica. Overwater bungalows on Bora Bora and Moorea in French Polynesia (Tahiti). There are many island destinations, such as the Maldives, Fiji, and the Caribbean yet to explore. Where would you like to dip your toes in the sand and surf?

Hiking experiences along the coast in Cornwall, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland have had breathtaking views and friendly travelers along the trails. Whether you’d like to take day hikes or multi-day hiking with baggage service and a meal waiting at the end of the day, we can craft a coastal walking holiday of your dreams.

Perhaps, your coastal dreams lay on a small ship. Traveling the inner-Hebrides of Scotland, the islands of Croatia in the Adriatic Sea, or the lesser-traveled Greek islands can all be done on a small group charter or private yacht or sailboat.

For every body of water there is a coastal shore. The rugged, rocky shores of New England, Cornwall, and the Welsh Coast give way to the calm harbors of sand. Seven miles of white sand beach in Negril, Jamaica is perfect for early morning or evening sunset walks. The culinary delights of San Sebastien, Spain are accented by the protected harbor and beaches of the town. Coastal Themed travel can encompass couples, singles, and groups who like to explore, dine, and play along the water.
