Posted on 25 June 2017
1. Anse Lazio, Praslin Island, Seychelles
With a jungle backdrop, a border of craggy granite rocks, surrounded by crystal clear waters and the softest white sand, it’s no wonder this beach is considered one of the best. You’ll have to rub your eyes in disbelief that a place this beautiful exists.
2. Honopu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii
Because of the spiritual history of this beach, no boats or planes are allowed, but you can boat nearby and swim to that incredibly majestic shore.
3. Bondi Beach, Australia
Bondi is one of the most popular beaches in Australia. With its golden sands and endless flow of waves, Bondi is great place for both surfers and topless sunbathers alike.
4. White Beach, Boracay, Philippines
Boracay is famous for its relaxation and tranquility and was awarded best island in the world from the international travel magazine Travel + Leisure.
5. Rabbit Beach, Italy
This remote beach is located in the middle of the Mediterranean sea with an abundance of wildlife roaming the rocky grottos.
6. Maya Bay, Thailand
If you’ve ever seen the movie, The Beach, then you’ve probably dreamed about going to the unbelievable Maya Bay. Stunningly beautiful and sheltered by 100-metre high cliffs on three sides, the seclusion and solitude make this beach extra special.
7. Navagio Beach, Greece
This small and isolated, yet strikingly beautiful sandy cove is defined by its sheer limestone cliffs, white sand beaches, and clear blue water, but also it’s history. Navagio Beach is often referred to as the Shipwreck Beach or just simply “The Shipwreck” because it is home to the wreck of a ship called Panagiotis that is believed to have been a smugglers ship.
8. Hidden Beach, Marieta Islands, Mexico
A paradise hidden underneath a hole in the ground, this this one-of-a-kind natural wonder has remained untouched by human hands for many years. Being hoisted by helicopter is the only way to access this beach, which makes the trip here that much more exciting.
9. Prai da Dona Ana, Lagos, Algarve, Portugal
Described as the ‘best beach in the World’ by magazine Condé Nast Traveller, its crystal clear azure water and fantastic rock formations is what give this beach its unique character making it standout amongst the many other beautiful beaches around.
10. Baia do Sancho, Brazil
Its emerald green waters and white sand make this Brazilian beach enticing, but if you happen to be on the island during the rainy season between the months of February and June, you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise, because the Baia do Sancho comes alive with two most beautiful waterfalls cascading down from the cliffs into the sea.
