La Peniche Restaurant | Deauville, France | Dine on board a barge, moored at the marina of Deauville, steps away of the beach and the famous promenade, featuring cozy mahogany decor, breathtaking views, to top a great value for money. Ideal for a nice extended lunch with friends, lounging over drinks or coffee after a nice meal, enjoying the views.
One of my favorite lunch spots in the center of Deauville. Peniche in French is used to refer to a barge, so there you go, a different alternative type of restaurant.
My choices for the day were rather simple, but tasteful. Based in to menu options for either EUR 23 or EUR 34.
I went for the EUR 34 Euros menu with three options available on each step. As a starter I had: Carpaccio de thon rouge aux éclats de noisettes.
Followed by a main course of Filets de bar au beurre d’agrumes et sa purée de carottes. And of course I could not resist, I am in the region of Normandy, so you must try over and over all the fabulous selection of local cheeses available, Trilogie de fromages normands. For more information visit La Peniche. Bon appetite. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Plage Pampelonne in Ramataelle France | Ramatuelle, France | Neighbor district to Saint Tropez, only 15 minutes away, holding beautiful beaches and the exclusive Club 55. Six kilometers of beach, and traslucid green waters of the Mediterranean Sea. You will drive along vineyards and classic Tropezienne Provence style house.
If I would have to compare this beach to anywhere in the beach, and maybe in general St Tropez, would be to Punta del Este, Uruguay in South America. Same vibe, although here the travelers are a notch more upscale.

GPS Carlos Melia at Plage de Saline in St. Barth | St. Barth, West French Indies | There are just no words to describe this island, and coming to see Plage de Saline yesterday, has left me speechless. Stunning natual beauty, that images will speak by themselves. All I have to add is that Saline is know to be the Gay Hotspot of the Island, specilly to the left side as you walk to the water. At the far end, also in a very European style, you have the fully clothing optional area. Continue reading GPS Carlos Melia at Plage de Saline in St. Barth
GPS Carlos Melia from South Beach | Miami, Florida | A short 48 hours stop in Miami Beach before heading to cold New York City. Windy and a bit chilly, but still beautiful day to do what I always do while in South Beach, running at the boardwalk by the shore line, that goes from 47th. Street to the heart of Ocean Drive. Not into running, then take your time to go for a stroll. CM
My TOP 04 list of beaches in Phuket | Phuket, Thailand | After over a week here in Phuket and about to leave tomorrow, I want to share with all of you my TOP 04 of favorite beaches in the island. Hopefully this will save you all lots of time, and allow you to better enjoy those areas worth spending time at. Patong Beach might be the most renown area and beach among regular tourists coming to Phuket, my suggestion, do not waste your time there. Patong is to visit at night, go to the bazaars, bars, restaurants and discos, but not for the beach. Continue reading My TOP 04 list of beaches in Phuket
