All Best Beaches in the World

All Best Beaches in the World

Grace Bay
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

Unbelievably clear, clean water with hundreds of shades of blues and greens and white sugar sand beaches

Blue Lagoon
Oludeniz, Fethiye Turkey

Also called Blue Lagoon, Oludeniz is a resort village in Fethiye. It’s one of the most popularly photographed beach with amazingly blue ocean and beach and most of the time lands on the top 5 beaches in the world.

Beautiful town, enticing blue beach and spectacular views – Oludeniz is a must-see, must-swim, must-visit.

Bora Bora
French Polynesia Tahiti

Sugar sand, palms, breeze, sea thatโ€™s 26-29C year round and the colour of peppermint mouthwash… Bora Bora is a cliched vision of the heavenly beach. Even if you never get to go, this is one for the mental image bank at least โ€“ use it when meditating. Matira has to win as the only public beach on the island, and somewhere you could mingle with locals.

Source dโ€™Argent
As if a beach like this needed any enhancement, pink-hued sand ups the ante in the picture-postcard stakes at Source dโ€™Argent, a secluded cove on La Digue, the Seychellesโ€™ third-largest island (in an archipelago of 115)

freebestravel_attractions_lineLanikai Beach

Half a mile of sparkling sand, palm trees swaying over a white-sand beach, lush tropical plants, and endless sunshine make Lanikai one of Hawaiiโ€™s most scenic beaches. The shore is protected by a nearby coral reef, which keeps the surf relatively calm. The water is always deep green and postcard-perfect.

Cala Gonone

Itโ€™s not difficult to find a stunning beach on Sardinia, but finding one that caters for families on a modest budget is more of a challenge. Cala Gonone ticks all of the right boxes. White pebble-and-sand beaches, with sun loungers and parasols for rent, calm, turquoise waters for swimming and snorkelling, a long seafront promenade lined with low-key trattorias โ€“ and none of the bling that accompanies the glitzier Costa Smeralda to the north.

Baia do Sancho
Fernando de Noronha, Brazil

As you walk through a small trail, you can’t imagine what awaits you. The heavenly view seems like a mirage

Playa Paraiso
Cayo Largo, Cuba

Picture perfect in every way. Gorgeous beach and the bluest water ever!

Anse Lazio
Praslin Island, Seychelles

Picture perfect, with crystal clear, warm waters, shade, sun and powder white sand


Whether your dream beach trip consists of spending a few pampered nights in a four-star resort or swimming among tropical fish some 80 feet (24 meters) underwater, the Maldives are the sort of islands where eitherโ€”or bothโ€”can come true. Straddling the Equator southwest of Sri Lanka, the 1,102 islands that make up the Maldives form 26 atolls. The soft air enveloping the archipelago blends into a beautiful palm-fringed haze.

Glass Beach

A beach made from years of dumped litter sounds like a hellhole but, at Glass beach, on the Mendocino coast in California, the result is quite beautiful. From 1906 to 1967, glass, appliances and even vehicles were chucked into the sea. A clean-up programme removed all the metal and non-biodegradable waste, and the waves broke down the glass and pottery, which washed up as jewel-like, translucent stones. Nowadays, the beach is part of MacKerricher state park, and visitors are forbidden for removing the sea-glass baubles.

Cayo de Agua
Los Roques National Park, Venezuela

An incredible beach of soft white sand surrounded on two sides by the Caribbean sparkling in all shades of blue.

Flamenco Beach
Culebra, Puerto Rico

The water was so clear and blue and gorgeous against the backdrop of the mountains. You can’t take a bad picture here.

Playa de Ses Illetes
Formentera, Balearic Islands
โ€œEndless sea, fine sand, spectacular views, yachts, fancy stalls, Ibiza on the horizon.

Ngapali Beach
Ngapali, Myanmar
โ€œThree kilometers of beach without a soul to be seen. No seashells, no rocks, no vendors!

West Bay Beach
West Bay, Honduras
โ€œGorgeous beach. Just walk out a few steps to some of the best snorkeling on earth.โ€

Nacpan Beach
El Nido, Philippines
โ€œA long coastline, golden sand, beautiful crystal waters and a completely virgin landscape make a visit to this place unforgettable!โ€

Maho Beach
Cruz Bay, St. John
โ€œBeautiful beach with clear water. Swam with a sea turtle and came ashore to sunbathe with an iguana.โ€

Whitehaven Beach
Whitsunday Island, Whitsunday Islands
โ€œThe whole beach is untouched. No stores, no restaurants, just the beauty of nature at its best.โ€

Sharm El Luli
Marsa Alam, Egypt
โ€œParadise. Pristine, beautiful beach and a tropical aquarium under water.โ€

Elafonissi Beach

โ€œThe sea was calm and beautiful. The colors are intenseโ€”light blue water, pink sand. Paradise.โ€



More of a cove than a beach, backed by cliffs and dense woods, with white sands and pebbles and clear blue waters โ€“ is Fakistra on the Pelion peninsula (mainland Greece), below Tsagarada village. Itโ€™s a steep walk down but itโ€™s the sort of place that, apart from in July and August, you may well have to yourself.

Playa Manuel Antonio
Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica
โ€œGorgeous beach, gentle tide, warm water. A swimmer’s paradise.โ€

Flamenco Beach
Puerto Rico

If asked to design the perfect tropical beach, Playa Flamenco on Culebra island, off the east coast of Puerto Rico, is probably what you would come up with. Itโ€™s a U-shaped cove with white sand, warm turquoise water, palm trees, lush vegetation and a peaceful lagoon. The islandโ€™s undeveloped state is partly thanks to the US military, which used to use it as a gunnery range โ€“ a rusting Sherman tank remains in the middle of the sand.

The Baths
Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands
โ€œI’ve been all over the Caribbean, and this is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. We lost count of the beautiful, bold-colored fish that swam near us.โ€

Playa del Amor (Hidden Beach)

An underground beach sounds like the stuff of legend, but the Marietas Islands, where Hidden Beach lies, were used as a military testing ground by the Mexican government in the early 1900s, and itโ€™s suspected that a bomb may have created the crater in which it sits. Access to this crescent within a gaping circular hole in the landscape, is by swimming or kayaking through a long tunnel.

Camp’s Bay Beach
Camps Bay, South Africa
โ€œThe sandy beach and massive, cold waves are just what’s needed on a hot, sunny summer Cape Town day.โ€

Starfish Beach

Panama has three archipelagos: San Blas is pricey to get to, the Pearl Islands are pricey to stay on, but Bocas del Toro, just south of Costa Rica on the Caribbean side, puts virgin beach utopia within a backpacker budget. From the funky town hub of Bocas on Isla Colรณn, boat taxis cross between the 10 inhabited islands and some 300 islands and islets, although this protected beach, gloriously decorated with a liberal smattering of starfish, is on Colรณn itself.

Praia da Marinha
Carvoeiro, Portugal
โ€œClassic Algarve beach with sand, cliffs, rocks, caves, archesโ€”it’s got it all. Plus crystal clear water and an abundance of marine life on showโ€

Kata Noi Beach
Karon, Thailand
โ€œWaves and water like baby bear’s porridge: not too hot or cold, not too big or small. Simply perfect in every way. Really.โ€

Clearwater Beach
Clearwater, Florida
โ€œThe sugar fine white sand is a trademark of this fabulous beach. Perfect for a day in the sun. You might even spot a dolphin or two playing on the horizon.โ€

Koh Kradan

Choosing the best beach in Thailand is a near impossible task. But one Thai island thatโ€™s still relatively peaceful is Koh Kradan, near busier Koh Lipe, in the Andaman Sea. With powdery sand, excellent snorkelling on a reef just off the beach, hammocks and crystal-clear water, it would suit those who donโ€™t want to drink buckets of spirits under a full moon.

Playa Paraiso
Tulum, Mexico
โ€œOne of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. Swim, take a nap, read a book. You’ll be happy to just be here.โ€

Agonda Beach
Agonda, India
โ€œSerene, tranquil beach, far from the madding crowd. Ideal place for meditation, sun worshiping or reading.โ€

Horseshoe Bay Beach
Southampton Parish, Bermuda
โ€œThe perfect beach? Picturesque, with pink sand and gentle waves rolling in. Lovely at any time of the day.โ€

Tumon Beach
Tumon, Mariana Islands
โ€œThe sand is white, the water a gorgeous blue. Swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding or small water craftsโ€”you can do it all here.โ€

Praia de Santa Maria
Santa Maria, Cape Verde
โ€œThe weather, the amazing sandy beach and crashing waves, the fresh fish on the pierโ€”all great memories!โ€

Dune du Pyla

This beach is Europeโ€™s tallest dune at over 100 metres. Itโ€™s an hourโ€™s drive from Bordeaux and is literally dazzling. You will shield your eyes as much from the shimmering heat haze as the pristine sand.
Shoal Bay

Icing-sugar sand, 3km of it, crystal-clear Caribbean water, off-shore coral reef with spectacular snorkelling or diving, a smattering of bars and open-air restaurants

Cala Saona

There is no shortage of beautiful beaches on the smallest of the Balearics but everybody seems to want to cram on to Illetes and Espalmador. Much better to hire a bike or moped in the main port, La Savina, and head a few kilometres across the island to Cala Saona.
