Is there any place in the world that is not completely remote, has white sand / clear water / palm trees on the beach and that doesn't have multiple months of extreme heat and humidity?


To be clear, I like warm weather. I don't mind a dew point of 22-23°C, even 24° (e.g. 29°C with 75% relative humidity) is fine. However I recently experienced a couple days of a dew point of 26-27° without any wind and that started to become really unpleasant.



Without having spent time there, I thought that maybe the south-eastern islands of the Caribbean (e.g. Grenada and Barbados) would fit, however I see conflicting statements about how "bad" it actually gets there in summer? What do you think?


Do you know any other places that fit the bill (maybe Hawaii?) and that at least have some kind of infrastructure? I do need stable and fast internet for my job, unfortunately.



Thanks for your help!

Hawaii is great.
Im not an expert, but take Oahu Island for example, location matters a lot. It is a good sized island but the west side is quite warm hot but also dry. Not many trees. Compare this to the north east where it is more cloudy rainy and relatively cooler.
Honolulu is in the middle where it is warm a little humid but sunny up until the afternoon rainstorm. Rain doesn't hit often in the dry west part of Oahu as often.
I think all the bigger islands have wet cool sides, warm humid sides and hot dry areas.
The big island has snow ice at the high peak. Some like the cooler elevation and prefer to have a home there versus down by the coast where it is much warmer and humid.

The coast of Peru. The Humboldt Current is very cold, and penguins can be found near the Equator -- even in Ecuador.

Thanks so much for the input and ideas. I've looked a lot into Hawaii, however unfortunately it is too remote I guess and additionally I am not a US citizen, so I'd need to get a Green Card first.

@arr430
I looked into Peru, however the beaches look very desert like and not very tropical (which makes sense I guess, as Lima seems to be a desert).

If anyone has any other ideas, please post!

Noosa, Queensland Australia? I suspect it may be much too remote, depending where you are located.

Very good recommendation! I actually was there a couple months ago and think it definitely ticks the weather box. Unfortunately while I think the beaches are quite nice, there don't really have the "tropical beach looks" like https://odis.homeaway.com/odis/desti...223909.hw5.jpg

The perfect spot for me would have the weather of Noosa combined with beaches like the one in the link. However, I don't think such a spot exists :/

Bavaro Beach in the Dominican Republic. In fact, its the most visited beach by foreigners in the entire Caribbean and its one of the world's natural uninterrupted for 40 kilometers white sand beach. Many areas are so perfect its almost unbelievable that nature create it instead of man. Its also very accessible since it has many resorts though there is a height restriction, so the usual line of highrise hotels along the beach in most tourist area isn't the case here.

It also has one of the best connected airport to the USA, Canada, Latin America; and the most connections to Europe of any airport in Latin America.

Just minutes away from Bavaro Beach is Juanillo Beach. Its more exclusive because it doesn't have many resorts (yet) and I think more beautiful than Bavaro Beach.

Just a 3 hour flight from NYC and you're there in instant summer walking with shorts and flip flops. While early in the morning you were covered in a coat and suffering the windchills and looking at the snow and ice covering the ground of a typical winter in the northern USA. Brrr...

No-brainer. The Yucatan Peninsula, and the Bay Islands off the Caribbean coast of Honduras. Also -- Belize. All of those are in the same ecological and cultural zone. It doesn't get hot in Dec./Jan., but pleasantly warm. You just have to watch out for the sharks, as in any tropical environment. Or even in temperate environments, like some Northern California beaches.

Thanks! But looking at the climate data in Wikipedia, the average high in July for Cancún is 34C / 93F. Together with an average of 75% RH this results in a dew point of 29C/84F. Like I said, I found a dew point of 26C already quite uncomfortable, I can't imagine how bad 29C must be.. So this won't work during the Summer months for me unfortunately.
