We all found ourselves shocked by the fact that we are STILL in time of pandemic which has definitely ruined some of our travel plans, agreed? There are bunch of places with travel restrictions and some of them you can’t even enter. This is why we are bringing you some of the best places to travel during Covid! Buckle up we are about to take off to those places where you travel plans can still come true.
By best, we mean the safest
Since we found ourselves in a very, let’s say, interesting era of lifetime feeling safe (by that I mean heathy) has become maybe more important than going to the very best places on earth. This list will bring you some of the safest destinations where you can feel relaxed and enjoy the beauty of our planet.
So let’s begin:
- Madeira, Portugal
- Azores, Portugal
- Tahiti, French Polynesia
- Asos - Kefalionia Island, Greece
- Cavtat, Croatia
In general you can find that Portugal is always a good idea mainly cause of its wonderful weather, but now there is a new reason; recently they reopen theirs terraces - biiig corona related progress! Specifically Madeira & Azores have been listed as one of the safest travel destinations during pandemic. Madeira does NOT require a quarantine in case if you have a negative PCR test which means once you arrive on the island you are allow to move freely. Restaurants, shops, hotels and bars are open and there is no curfew - isn’t this enough of a reason to be booking a plane ticket asap?! Also you can read all you need to know regarding the situation, on the following link.
The situation on beautiful islands of Azores is pretty much the same as the one in Madeira since both islands are situated far far from the land which helped them remain in the green zone with low rates of active cases. No quarantine (if you have a negative test of course), restaurants are open, masks are not mandatory on the beach and what more can you ask? Before your trip, make sure you checked this website for all the latest info. Azores is group of 9 islands full of wonders and I recommend you to take your time to visit them all, I guess if you are working/studying remotely it shouldn’t be a problem! Here are many ideas on how to seize the most out of Azores.
After two gorgeous islands it’s time for another one but this time we move bit more south in the very center of Pacific Ocean. This really exotic island has been rated as a safe destination with plenty of activates to do outdoor. A negative PCR is required at the entrance (OK we should just accept this as a new travel rule), but the good thing is that once you arrive you are free to go, no quarantine needed. Tahiti brings you outstanding hiking trails, beautiful underwater experience while scuba diving, relaxing spots with breathtaking views...And don’t forget to get in touch with Tahitian culture and trying their rich & tasty gastronomy.

I believe you already got theidea of islands being the best options for travelling in 2021., and that’s why I am adding one more to the list! Specially a beautiful Greek island located in Ionian sea - Kefalonia. In heart of Kefalonia you can find the cutes place to enjoy your vacation, Assos. It is an old fishing village which means you get to taste some fresh fish straight from the sea to your table, isn’t that amazing? Unlike other places there still are some restrictions to enter Greece but more on that you can find here.
And the last one on our list of safest places to travel is a small town in the south of Croatia. Currently terraces had just open for this part of Croatia, which means you can have a tasty meal or drink delicious coffee just a few meters from one of the world’s most beautiful sea. Cavtat will help you slow down and enjoy the life, even in rough situations like the one we are all experiencing. In case you decide to visit Cavtat you can also drive few more kilometers and visit one of the most famous cities in Croatia - Dubrovnik. And of course some Covid related info - make sure you fill this in before your arrival to Croatia just for some safety reasons.
