Most Beautiful Beaches in the World: We do not rank, they are all as beautiful as each other.
The 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World
You are told beach, you think water, sand, and sun. Good. Now we tell you paradise beach, which is in our ranking of the 10 most beautiful in the world, you think what? Has a bioluminescent bay? Has a private island? Has a desert of white sand with dunes filled with rainwater? You are quite right.
1. Zlatni Rat Beach – Bol in Croatia
This small village on the island of Brac in Croatia has only a handful of inhabitants but seduces the quadruple of people each year. The beautiful beach of Zlatni Rat, a species of a sand tongue that juts into turquoise waters. Magnificent.
Note: The beach is accessible only by boat, a ferry that connects the island of Bol, 3rd largest Adriatic island, to the mainland.
2. Little Water Cay Beach – Turk and Caicos
We love them all, the beaches of the Caicos Islands because they bring together the 3 conditions of a paradisiac beach: a white sand, transparent waters, and not many people. However, if you had to choose one, it would be Little Water Cay, because its sand is really white, its waters really translucent and there really is only you.
Note: If you really care about the 3rd point, then you can always invest in an island of your own, just because Water Cay is for sale, for $ 36 million – the tranquility at a price …
3. Anse Source d’Argent Beach – La Digue in Seychelles
Already, the name is dreaming, Seychelles, but wait to see where you land: the scenery seems straight out of a video game so it seems unreal. The feet in a totally translucent water, you are surrounded by a chaos of rocks, as smooth as your oiled skin and not yet tanned.
Note: At La Digue, it will be an opportunity to try the local means of transport: the ox-cart.
4. Champagne Beach – Espiritu Santo Island in Vanuatu
This beautiful beach is (quite) known, but has the merit of being on an island that few people would be able to place on a globe: in Vanuatu, a state of Oceania that is actually made up of 83 islands. One of them, Espiritu Santo is famous for its beach Champagne Beach with very clear waters, considered as one of the most beautiful of the Pacific south.
Note: If at the end of a walk in the water you see on the sand beach drawings, do not see there the delirium of an artist: the drawings on the sand of Vanuatu are a tradition of the state, inscribed in the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, which was basically a means of ephemeral communication between the different tribes of the archipelago.
5. Matira, Bora Bora
The “Pearl of the Pacific” is one of the most visited islands of French Polynesia, and we understand why: it is not very wide, but it does not matter because you will spend most of your time in the water, promised.
Note: Yes, yes, Bora Bora, that’s where there are these hotels perched on stilts of crystal clear water, sometimes even with a transparent floor so you can see what’s going on in these funds wonderful seamen.
6. Lencois Maranhenses Park – Maranhao in Brazil
True desert of white sand, the national park is transformed after heavy rains: you see there bloom small lagoons of fresh water in the hollow of its beautiful dunes.
Note: You wanted a beach? You have here dozens. And, in addition, you bathe in rainwater.
7. Nosy Iranja beach in Madagascar
Nosy Iranja is a tiny island off Madagascar, but with enormous potential. Composed of a hotel and a fishing village, however, it welcomes some tourists connoisseurs, who can then bask in its warm waters and roast on its pristine sand.
Note: At high tide, the island is cut in 2, at low tide, it is a huge pearly beach, which looks like paradise lost.
8. Fraser Island Beach in Australia
As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. His sweet little name in the language of the aborigines? “K’gari”, or “paradise”, is saying, and the island can boast of having a unique ecosystem in addition to sandy beaches filled with scattered rocks and some palm trees bending leeward.
9. Long Beach – Koh Phi Phi Don Thailand
The largest island of the archipelago of Phi Phi Thai islands, Koh Phi Phi Don attracts thousands of tourists, charmed by its seabed that makes it a paradise for divers, but also by its vertiginous cliffs that plunge into the water. The beach at Long Beach is absolutely heavenly, even if its white sand is (too) often blackened with people.
Note: If you love the world and the pictures in known places, head to the neighboring island of Koh Phi Phi Ley, where the sublime Bay of Maya served as a backdrop to the film The Beach, with the beautiful Leo.
10. Blue Beach – Vieques Island Puerto Rico
This island-municipality of Puerto Rico is a very beautiful scuba diving site, but it is also known to have been a training camp of the US Armed Forces. So do not worry, you will not see any more soldiers in underwear on the beaches, but many lovers of sun and warm water on the sandy beach of Blue Beach.
Note: The island has one of the 3 bioluminescent bays of Puerto Rico, Mosquito Bay, so the lagoon lights up when its surface is rough – a particularly magical sight if you try a night kayak outing.
