No Matter How Heavy The Workload, Is Like A Day At The Beach



Yes, some entrepreneurs face tougher questions than others. Endless white sand or horseshoe bay? Surf or swim? Island resort or rugged coastline? When it comes to the all important decision of where to step away from the hustle, nothing, NOTHING is more important than choosing the right beach. And like a brave lifeguard rescuing the tourist caught in the undertow, Explore Corner is here to help.

Travel is an investment, and something most of us consider essential to our health. Explore Corner offers a unique resource that helps travelers find their ideal beaches. There’s something for everyone: popular beaches that offer the recreational opportunities to go jet skiing or parasailing, exclusive resort settings, untrammeled shores, and even rustic fishing villages.


Platforms On The Brain? Think Boardwalk

Founder Vladimir Kokovic worked as web developer, spending years in outsourcing while watching some of his best ideas turned into successful companies by others. He decided he was ready to turn entrepreneur and begin his own startup. Now, at Explore Corner, he’s the Big Kahuna.




An avid traveler himself, Kokovic was dissatisfied with information available online to help him select his next beach destination. Single reviews or slanted ad copy, didn’t collect enough of the right information in a useful manner.


Explore Corner makes it easy study up on and then compare the qualities of different beaches. Data is impartial. The young startup has only been limited in covering the destinations that their self-funded resources have allowed them to manage thus far. They’re currently collecting as much information as possible. So if you’d like to include reviews, photos, or suggest other beaches that they should add to the inventory, they would love for you to visit. (When the company grows big enough to hire an international researcher and content writer, I call dibs!)




It’s always perfect beach weather somewhere in the world. Explore Corner has your back like 50+ SPF when it comes to deciding where to throw down your beach towel next. Surf’s up!
