Beaches are the perfect getaway trips. You can chill, swim, lay flat and get tan as well as try out a number of adventure sports at different places. While getting to the place can be a bit tricky and you may have to hike or travel through treacherous roads to reach your destination, but at the end it is always worth it.
Today, we will discuss a few of the best beaches around the globe which has been considered one of the most beautiful ones as well. Whether it is a pearly white sand beach or a golden one, a pink one or a stretch of the black, each one is more mesmerizing than the other. The ones I am going to discuss here today are all world class sea beaches. So, if you’re one of the people who hopes to explore all the good beaches before they die start with any of these options and you’re good to go!
- Blue Lagoon
I couldn’t help starting with this one. This beach belongs in Turkey by Fethiye town where the turquoise blue water of the Aegean and Mediterranean merges that provide a magnificent view that will mesmerize any visitor.
Travelers have the option of diving here as well. The dark caves resided in the green peaks distributed around the beach and plenty of visibility makes it a perfect place to explore for deep sea explorers.
This beach is the 3rd best one around the world according to the U.S News Rankings. Hawaii’s beach is the black sand one that stretches for miles and attracts families, friends and solo travelers on a similar extent. Maui Island that resides the beach is one of the most popular tourist spots of the Hawaiian archipelago. As the bonus you get to witness the world’s largest dormant volcano Haleakala while you’re here.
- Hidden Beach
This Mexican sea beach at the Marieta Islands by Puerto Vallarta is probably the only man-made beach that you’ll find in this list. According to the rumors the Mexican military formed this beach with the towering cliff surrounding the whole place creating a sort of bore well like shape in the 1900s when they used the place to detonate test bombs. In spite of the name the beach is no longer as hidden as it once was rumored to be. But still, visitors need to pass through a water tunnel if you want to reach the beach.
- Ora Beach
Indonesia is anyway famous for its beaches. And one of the most eye-grabbing one is at Maluku where calm (for a sea) emerald water stretches through as far as your vision takes you. It is famous enough that the place is known as the Maldives of Indonesia (which is a title in itself!).
One of the plus points of visiting this beach is that here you can rent small ‘Tiki’ huts which are supported on wooden stilts over the water that provide you with your own personal private beach; perfect for a romantic getaway.
- El Castillo
This is one of the more interesting ones as beaches go. The white sand beach with the Mayan ruins at the backdrop is clearly a place to be. It is a reminder of the days gone by combining with today’s time. It is a place of fun with tourists kite surfing, eating fish tacos dancing on local Salsa music and basically enjoying themselves.
- Big Island
Hawaii is all about beaches. While some it is good for family an outing, some of it is just good to chill and have fun; whereas, some beaches are good for sporting activities. But Big Island is just big – in size. It is also a jumble of geographic uniqueness that include black sand beaches, lava deserts, snow peaks and thriving rainforests all in one place which makes the island something to witness in your lifetime. It’s not a particularly serene place to visit, maybe not for honeymooners (if they are not into hiking and other stuff like that), with the fire-spitting active volcano Kilauea and all. But Big Island is definitely a place where you go if you like roaming around state parks and following hiking trails through rainforests.
- Nai Harn Beach
Nai Harn Beach in Phuket is so much loved by both visitors and locals for two reasons. First, there are quite a few good restaurants very close to the beach and second, the secluded locale of the area with the pristine white sand expanding and the rolling green and white water crashing on the shores is truly a sight to behold.
When you’re at the beach you have to be very careful about the warnings by the lifeguards as riptides are very common in this beach especially, during monsoon which lasts from May to October.
- Anse Source d’Argent
The last one I am including because of my fascination with pink sand beaches. This beach at La Digue in the Republic of Seychelles is a unspoiled piece of nature with towering cliffs with lush green vegetation here and there and clear green-blue water stretching out as far as your vision expands.
This is one of the most photographed beaches in the world.
