    • Guarantee yourself a unique travel experience with this guide to the world’s most pristine and tourist-friendly beach destinations.

       

      Tulum Beach (Mexico)., This beach is on the eastern side of the Yucatan Peninsula and is a valuable historical site with ruins from an era long gone by. The beach is still home to some Mayan remains, from a time when the civilization was waning. Tourists enjoy the pristine beach and vivid splash of history overlooked by a luscious canopy of trees.

       

      Whitehaven Beach (Australia).This stunning beach is located on Whitsunday Island, the largest in the Whitsundays group off the eastern coast of Australia. It extends over 6 km, with pure white sand so clear (98%) that it is used by space agencies to construct telescope glass. The beach opens out onto a narrow bay on the north side and a perfect picture is painted by the crystal clear water breaking onto the shore at various tidal levels.

       

      Maya Beach (Thailand).This flat beach is located in a bay on the island of Koh Phi Phi Leh, and is completely surrounded by rocky mountains. The beach became very popular after the movie “The Beach” was filmed there in 2000, starring Hollywood hottie Leonardo DiCaprio. One of its best features is its marine life, so divers are advised to give it a try.

       

      Zlatni Rat (“Golden Cape”) Beach in Croatia is one of Europe’s most popular beach destinations. Located on the southern coast of the island of Brač, the beach extends along a heavenly 580m promontory stretching out into the sea. This pebble beach has exceptional wind patterns and tides, as well as a beautiful shape.

       

      Hanalei Bay on Kaua‘i Island, Hawaii, is famous for its crescent shape. The backdrop of quick-moving clouds, waterfalls, mountains, grassland and tree canopy make this bay an exceptional spot. Fans of Hanalei praise it for summertime sunbathing and wintertime surfing – or simply watching the sun-kissed professionals demonstrate their skills!

    • Navagio Beach (Greece)This beautiful sandy cove on Zakynthos Island in Greece is only accessible by boat. It attracts thousands of tourists every year and is well known for its rocky cliffs surrounding the bay from three sides. Fans of this beach remark on the clear blue water and beautiful white sand.

       

      Boracay Island (Philippines).This island has a magnificent beach with over two miles of pure white sand. Never too hot to lie down on, it is perfect for suntan enthusiasts. The best time to visit is between September and June, when the eastern breeze is perfect, rain is rare and the sky is exquisite.

       

      Maldives Beaches (Maldives).The tropical island canopy, crystal clear water and clean soft sand are all remarkable features of these islands’ beaches. The Maldives islands are also famous for their rich coral reef ecosystems, making them ideal for divers and snorkelers. The islands have gained in popularity over the last decade, as many honeymooners have chosen these beaches as their dream destination.

       

      Pink Sands Beach (Bahamas) Located on Harbour Island and extending over 3 miles, this beach is definitely unique in every sense of the word. Its pale pink colour is a result of tiny crustaceans living in the coral reefs off the coast – when they die the waves wash their pink and red shells up onto the beach. This alluring and distinctive feature makes the beach a popular choice among holidaymakers.

       

      South Beach (Miami, USA) This is one of Florida’s best features and the USA’s best kept secrets. The warm sand, gentle waves and hip crowd make this beach a must-go destination. Young people will especially enjoy the frequent beach parties hosted by various clubs scattered along the beach.
