For the bored or down and out traveler out there, how about “inspirational travel” this Summer season? You don’t know what inspirational travel is, you say? Well, a company called Beach Tomato has launched a new online portal to inspire, and to help satisfy your wanderlust for sandy, seashore, and sunshine bliss this year. BeachTomatoVillas.com is a wide eyed beach stay showcase. Let’s look.
If you’re like me, you like your beach visuals big and immersible. The only thing even close to actually digging your toes int he sand it to visually do so. Just why more websites don’t show off their wares like Beach Tomato has here, is a puzzlement to me. It must cost more or something? NOT. Okay, now we have the landing and visual inspiration down.
Now, if I were wanting to gauge just how “slick” and fast a cutting edge booking site could be, this one would be in the top 10 for sure. We are planning on heading to Sardinia this season, so naturally I wanted to see how well these strange Beach Tomato (strange because the name says so) deal with user interfaces, friendliness, and choice. Bingo!
I am left with the fastest relevant filtering result I’ve seen in a bit (above). Of course the possible filtering options are numerous, but let me tell you getting down to the best choices for your particlar needs on this site is super nice and easy. The image below reflects part of what I like so much about this new site. Having researched Sardinia pretty extensively for our work, mapping the places on this large Island is something any visitor will want to do. It’s not that there are any really bad places on the Island to visit, but most tourists have little idea of the geography and landscape of this fabulous destination. Mapping the marina haymarket in Porto Cervo (Northeast Sardinia), we see our super cheap and chic villa find. £1,072.47 (GBP) per week – dynamite! (I might suggest conversion to Euro for little ole me)
Sleeps five, just right. While we were not exactly looking to hit the party spots around Porto Cervo, for the price and convenience to beaches and shopping at this villa, our little party could do a lot worse. Once again, Beach Tomato has a little hit on their hands. At least in my book, how about yours?
