The lure of a beautiful beach can be hard to resist, no matter whether you are a water baby, a beach walker, or an old salty seaman. They are places for enjoying the best of nature, getting into water-sports, making a living, or just lying back and relaxing.
Planning a summer getaway? Or in the middle of winter and feeling nostalgic about seeing the sun? Here are 23 of the most beautiful beaches around the world.
1. Dreamland Beach, Bali
Bali in Indonesia is one of those destinations you have to go to, at least once, in your lifetime. It’s even better when you get to spend a bit of time on at least one of the beautiful beaches such as this one, Dreamland Beach on Bukit Peninsula on the south-west coast.
2. Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Islands, Australia
Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsunday Islands of Australia is a stunning seven kilometer (four-mile) stretch of white sands and turquoise waters. You can camp and barbecue while you’re there but to do so will have to travel by boat, Jetski, seaplane, or helicopter – there are no roads.
3. Seven Mile Beach, Cayman Islands
Seven Mile Beach in the Grand Cayman Islands is a gorgeous sandy coral beach. You can take that morning or evening stroll along the full length of the beach to make the most of the Carribean sun rising and setting.
