A seaside resort in Germany


No chance of a tropical storm here! Incredible pictures show luxury resort complete with sandy beaches, palm trees and clear blue water...

With sandy beaches, clear blue water and palm trees, this looks like a spectacular and luxurious sun-kissed resort.
Holidaymakers can be seen relaxing in swimming shorts and bikinis. Even the occasional flamingo can be spotted.
But not everything is as it seems at Tropical Islands.

As these pictures show, the resort contains a beach, a lagoon, water slide and adventure park.
Guests can enjoy numerous restaurants, evening shows and can also relax in a sauna.
