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
3) Anse Source d’Argent
4) Playa Zipolite
5) Kho Phangan
6) Mactan Island
7) Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach), Greece
8) Siesta Key Beach
9) Grace Bay Beach, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands
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!
