Explorer: Beaches, Islands & Coasts



The Explorer series takes travel beyond the obvious with adventures in exotic places and new perspectives in familiar ones, all based on the distinguished travel journalism in The New York Times.

Whether it’s a languid day on the postcard-perfect bays of the Maldives, a swim to the tiny monastery island in Italy’s Lago d’Orta, a chocolate tour of the Caribbean, or see the spectacle of Newfoundland’s Ghost Coast. Dive in and share the discoveries of Beaches, Islands, & Coasts. Part of TASCHEN’s Explorer series with The New York Times, this book tells the stories of 25 dream trips for curious minds, where the water is always only a pebble’s throw away.

Each journey features a first-person narrative and documentary photography that capture the unique personality of the destination―as well as practical information to help get you on your way.
