18 Best travel sandals for the beach, city and adventure

Please only travel when and where it’s safe, and follow all local guidelines. Also double-check what's open before your trip.

Apart from travel, if there’s one other thing I know really well – it’s shoes!

The big challenge, though, is finding a pair that’s both fashionable and comfy.

We prefer traveling to places where it’s warm – like Europe (when it’s short-sleeves weather) and sun-and-sand destinations (hello Cabo San Lucas!).

And I’m always on the hunt for the best travel sandals for women and men – because your partner should look good too, right?

Shopping for the Best Travel Sandals

I’m talking stylish.

But also comfortable sandals for travel you can actually walk in without getting blisters (because sore feet aside, hobbling doesn’t look good).

And in case you can’t tell, it’s me, Janice, writing this post :-).

Those sandals are really cute, aren't they! We couldn't find these on Amazon (or in stores here where we live). So we don't know the brand. They could be European. Sometimes there are great shoes you can only find in Europe and not North America. Hope there's another pair you like :-).

Great article!

Sandals are really comfortable. That is why I love my Birkenstocks. You don’t have to compromise comfort for style.

Stay safe and healthy! Cheers!
