The 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World

The 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World

November 14, 2021 0 By admin

Several days ago, we saw a list of the world’s most dangerous beaches and there were some good ones on it. But today, let’s take a look at some of the other beaches around the world that are not only beautiful but also safe to swim at! In this list, you’ll find beaches from Europe, Asia, North America, and South America.

1) Whitehaven Beach

Whitehaven Beach is located on Whitsunday Island, an island that is part of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Whitehaven Beach is famous for its sand, which was formed when ancient coral died and turned to sand. The beaches on Whitsunday Island are also known for their beauty, but Whitehaven is especially stunning due to its distinctive silica white sand. The area attracts many tourists every year who come to relax on its sandy shores.

2) Half Moon Bay

Half Moon Bay is perhaps one of California’s most beautiful beaches. With its crystal clear waters and clean white sand, it’s not hard to see why people consider it to be paradise on earth. Located just an hour south of San Francisco, you’ll have no trouble getting there but what awaits you on arrival will leave you speechless. The first thing that will catch your eye is a gorgeous lagoon surrounded by high-end hotels and resorts with amazing views out over Half Moon Bay itself where dolphins swim alongside surfers on some days. Visit here if you want somewhere incredibly tranquil without compromising on beauty or facilities!

3) Anse Source d’Argent

In picturesque Seychelles, a tiny island in eastern Africa, lies one of world’s most stunning beaches. The beach at Anse Source d’Argent offers up powdery white sand, palm trees swaying gently in warm breezes and plenty of sun. That’s about all that takes to make for a great day at the beach — but throw into that mix crystalline water that gives it an aquamarine hue, waves lapping gently on shore and rainforest greenery as far as you can see… well… you’ve got yourself quite a place! If you’re looking for some postcard-worthy scenery without too much tourism (though it certainly isn’t void of visitors), Anse Source d’Argent is where you should head.

4) Playa Zipolite

This beach, located about an hour outside of Puerto Escondido, Mexico, has become famous for its free-spirited residents. There are no hotels or condos at Zipolite; instead, you’ll find shacks made of palm fronds along with plenty of colorful tents. While nudity is not required—nor common—on Zipolite’s beach (swimsuits are actually more common than you’d think), nudity isn’t prohibited either. This anything goes attitude extends to pot smoking and other recreational drugs as well.

5) Kho Phangan

There are no words to describe Haad Rin. You must experience it for yourself. The people you will meet, both tourists and locals, will be your friends for life. The landscape is something you’ve never seen before and can’t possibly imagine seeing anywhere else. There’s a reason we refer to these places as paradise on earth, and why so many travelers decide to never leave: they simply fall in love with it all over again.

6) Mactan Island

Take a quick flight from Manila, and you’ll land on Mactan Island, which is also home to Mactan-Cebu International Airport. After a day of swimming and tanning on Pag-asa Beach, hop over to Pinamungajan Island, where you can snorkel with jellyfish or relax at a beachside spa. You might also want to check out Malapascua Island’s paradise-like white sand beaches or visit Panglao Island to take surfing lessons. You can even get married on Panglao if that’s your thing. Just remember to pack sunscreen—these beaches are so beautiful you might not want to leave! Check out these other great places.

7) Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach), Greece

There’s only one beach that tops our list. This remote island of Zakynthos, Greece boasts a deserted landscape with turquoise waters and crystal-clear skies. Visitors to Navagio Beach can actually swim up to a wrecked ship that sits among turquoise water and rock outcroppings—the perfect place for snorkeling or diving. There are no local businesses on the island itself, so pack up your own snacks and drinks before heading to Navagio. And although there is a trail leading from one side of Navagio beach to another, getting there requires a bit of climbing—definitely not suitable for everyone.

8) Siesta Key Beach

If you like to be tan, like I do, then you should check out Siesta Key Beach. This popular spot is located along Sarasota Bay and has white sands that stretch for miles. If you can’t get enough of sunny days, head over to St. Pete Beach, which is right across the bridge from Siesta Key Beach. With big rolling waves and plenty of other beach bums hanging around, it’s easy to find people who are just as into relaxing as you are! You can also go surfing or rent a jet ski if that’s your thing. And if all else fails, just grab a volleyball and play with other tourists on one of your down days.

9) Grace Bay Beach, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands

If you’re trying to put together a list of must-see beaches, there’s no way around it: Grace Bay Beach is going to top your list. It’s one of those places that simply lives up to its hype and then some. As if that weren’t enough reason for us, we just can’t seem to get over those beautiful blue waters and perfect white sand. The only way we can describe it is as near-perfection.

10) Haputale Beach

Located on Sri Lanka’s tropical southern coast, Haputale Beach offers stunning views of lush mountains and an azure blue ocean. The beach is only accessible by hiking down a steep hill or by mule, but it’s worth every bit of effort you put into reaching it. As one TripAdvisor reviewer writes: Be prepared to be blown away by how gorgeous it is. It was totally worth climbing down, up, back down again…and then waiting for a local guy with a mule to take us back up!
