Best Beaches Around The World

Have you already planned your summer holidays? If not, hopefully, this list will help you decide!  I have to admit that trying to narrow down the best beaches around the world wasn't easy at all! From crystal, clear, blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea to the exotic sands, coral reefs and turquoise waters of the Pacific ocean, in a planet where the 70 percent is covered by water – I am not ready to declare one perfect beach, but I will definitely try my best to give you a lot of options to add to your bucket list.

The three-mile beach, protected by offshore reefs that keep the water calm and shallow and the waves away, is most famous for its pale pink colour! The sand here is always cool, so you can enjoy a long walk barefoot. Also, the ocean is warm all the year and it is ideal for swimming.

A three-hour flight from New York or a 90-minute flight from Miami, Grace Bay Beach is a tropical paradise at the exotic complex of islands in Caribbean. Grace Bay is a famous dive spot with the world's third largest barrier reef, the white sand, without rocks and the crystal clean water are the reasons why it has been nominated numerous times as the best beach in the world.

Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece

Elafonisi is a small island, only 200 meters from the shore where the depth between these two is only 1 metre, so you can easily walk there. Bright white sand pinkish at several spots, blue waters, black rocks and cedar trees have created an endless summer playground for all ages.

Considered the most beautiful and pristine beach on St. John Island. Visitors at Trunk Bay can relax at the stunningly turquoise waters and the soft white sand, sunbathe by the shore under the tropical sun or snorkel at the National Park Underwater Trail.

Unquestionably the most beautiful, popular and photographed beach in Seychelles. Famous for its clear shallow water, giant boulders and white sand straps, Anse Source d’Argent might not be the ideal place for swimming, but it is an adventure if you love hiking and exploring hidden places.


White Beach, Boracay, Philippines

The warm and crystal, clear waters around Boracay are awesome for swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling. The fine, white, soft sand combined with the shallow water are  perfect for sunbathing and for endless games at the beach. Despite the relatively small size of the island, it has everything you need: activities, hotels, restaurants and nightlife all in front of the beach.
