Bikini wearers and beach lovers are always on the lookout for the best spots where they can relax. While the pandemic has made it hard to travel anywhere right now, Indians are still planning trips cautiously, keeping safety protocols in mind.
Today is International Bikini Day, which marks the anniversary of when the bikini was invented by French designer Louis Réard, which holds a deep cultural significance in history. It is believed the two-piece attire was invented in 1946 to match the liberated mood of Europeans who celebrated a war-free summer post World War II.
As such, on this occasion, digital travel company Booking.com brings you this list of unexplored Indian beaches you can visit to get that perfect bikini tan, when it is safe to travel.
