The Best Beaches in the World
If you’ve had enough of going to the most typical tourist destinations then maybe it’s time to prepare the luggage a little better, drop some extra bucks and escape to a more exotic destination to enjoy a dream vacation. Do not lose your head and take a look at the list of the best beaches in the world that I have prepared.
Never imagined a one day trip to Mahe Beach, Seychelles. I was expecting an island with many resorts, Italian restaurants and people from different corners of the world looking for the famous beaches. I had always looked at other destinations, but Mahe Beach was a pleasant surprise for me.
Famous for being considered one of the best beaches in the world, words are not enough to convey its perfection. In order to understand the indescribable charm of Mahe Beach, it is necessary to swim in its warm and crystalline waters, to traverse its shores with bare feet touching the fine sand, to observe the brilliant blues and turquoises of the Indian Ocean, plagued with flashes caused by a perennial Sun-shining, lounging under the shade of lush palm trees and coconut trees.
Tahiti, Bora Bora
Tahiti beach is one of those exotic destinations that you can still visit with the feeling of being in another world, a natural paradise in the remote French Polynesia. Its crystal clear waters dotted with coral reefs, underwater life observation, and water bungalows are its main attractions. Such incentives have made the island a favorite destination for a holiday retreat, but the influx of tourism is contained, mainly due to the distance that separates these lands from almost anywhere. And it is not cheap to get there.
Trust me, you will not be disappointed in Maldives where you will discover attractive islands, charming villages, and the beautiful white sand beaches. Interestingly, all of its beaches are same and ideal for a memorable vacation in Maldives.
Spectacular beaches of fine white sand and turquoise water awaits you to enjoy an unforgettable excursion. Maldives is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean which consists of about 1200 islands, of which only 203 are inhabited, so choosing one can give you some headache. Before deciding one or more, you must be clear about your priorities (for example, diving or bathing on the beach), how can you arrive and what is your budget.
Lanikai Beach, Hawaii
Lanikai beach is absolutely fantastic for most water activities. The waves are gentle, you can snorkel and rent kayaks and windsurf boards at weekends. I was able to make that dream come true in 2015. And to this day, Lanikai Beach remains one of my favorite destinations, one of those you always want to return to.
It is important to mention that it is a small beach and you will have to walk with a little more care because there are no lifeguards. If you arrive by car leave it at the parking lot of “Kailua Beach”, the beach next door, as it is quite difficult to park it in the vicinity of Lanikai Beach.
Aroa, Cook Islands
The Cook Islands are simply spectacular. If I focus on Aroa, I can say firmly that after traveling through many countries there are still places that can get me to impress. Surely it is that atmosphere of paradise and distance that is perceived once you put the feet in that fine sand. This part of the Pacific allows the Cook Islands to have such crystal clear water that it is possible to see more than 30 meters of depth. Aroa is a place worthy to have a poster in your room to recall you vacation.
On my first trip to Malaysia, I decided to spend a few days in Langkawi and be able to tell what I have seen. Langkawi has great natural beauty. It’s a perfect combination for families or for romantic getaways. I really liked it, and it’s a hop from Singapore or from Kuala Lumpur.
Pink Sands Beach, Bahamas
Pink Sand Beach is undoubtedly one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. The mixture of fragments of coral and shells, all bathed by the sea, give that tone a special look that makes this part a paradise where to get lost.
When combining the color of its sand with its crystalline waters, Pink Sand Beach has an attractive paradisiac appearance to its visitors. In addition, it is a beach surrounded by a dense nature where you can enjoy silence and tranquillity within an environment with an unforgettable landscape.
El Nido, Philippines
Every time I think of El Nido I not only remember its crystal clear waters and vacation resorts. The contrast is striking, and the shades of color of that blue of the interior lagoon leave you speechless. Apart, from any shore, the views towards the sea show a penetrating turquoise color that breaks against a striking barrier of coral. It is like an oasis in the middle of the sea, surrounded by a deep blue and broken by the white sand beaches.
Glass Beach, California
You have seen colorful beaches. There are black, red, green or rose by the shells on the island of Crete. But surely you did not know one like Glass Beach, a beach full of singularities for its color, its glass sand, and its particular origins. Here you can see how Mother Nature corrected man’s mistakes by returning wonders like this. You must go to Glass Beach, the unusual beach of crystals.
For a vacation trip like this, the best is to take out insurance. Traveling does not exempt you from having an accident, needing a doctor, a transfer or medications. Do not play it.
Without a doubt, these privileged places on earth could be the next trip of your dreams. Choose one of these exquisite beaches as your next travel destination. Swim, sunbathe, put on your glasses and snorkel or participate in some other aquatic activity.
I hope you get rid of doubts with this list. This is a very personal selection and it is difficult to go wrong.
