Top 10 Beaches

These are the best island beaches in the world


10. Cas Abao Beach, Curaçao

Ringed by reefs, Curaçao hides a Caribbean underwater wonderland, and this beach is one of the few sandy ones on the arid island, with a bar and a shop to rent snorkel gear. Slip straight into the shallow crystalline bay alive with sea fans and coral, tropical fish, sponges, sea turtles, and more.

9.One Foot Island, Aitutaki, Cook Islands

The marooned vibe is so palpable here it lured hit show Survivor to this 15-island atoll. Tapuaetai, “one footprint” in the local Maori dialect, is a short hop across the translucent lagoon, with a coconut palm-fringed shoreline you can trace in 15 minutes, but don’t rush, and don’t forget a footprint-shaped passport stamp from the hut turned post office.

8.baia do sancho fernando de noronha brazil

As you walk through a small trail, you can't imagine what awaits you. The heavenly view seems like a mirage.

7.Lindquist Beach, St. Thomas

It is part of a protected 21 acre area called Smith Bay Park. The gorgeous, crystal clear, turquoise water is perfect for swimming. Heading west, the swimming area gives way to another area of the bay, a very shallow shelf with tide pools

6.Giants Causeway Beach, Ireland

The giant’s causeway was formed 50-60 million years ago when basalt lava rose to the surface and cooled, cracking into strange, large columns.

5.Anse Lazio Praslin Island, Seychelles

Picture perfect, with crystal clear, warm waters, shade, sun and powder white sand

4.Anse Source d'Argent, La Digue, Seychelles

Most new arrivals head straight for the beach at Anse Source d'Argent, and it's easy to see why. Picture this: a dazzling white-sand beach backed by naturally sculpted granite boulders and lapped by emerald waters.

3.El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

El Nido is the primary base for exploring Palawan’s star attraction, the stunning Bacuit Archipelago. Tiny swiftlets build edible nests out of saliva in the immense limestone cliffs that surround the ramshackle town proper – hence the name, El Nido (nest in Spanish). The town proper has an ordinary beach, but is home to an emerging restaurant and bar scene. Brooding Cadlao Island looms just offshore.

2.Honopu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii

Also known as Cathedral Beach, Honopu—like Waipio Valley—is quite difficult to reach. For starters, it’s not accessible except by water, so to get there, you must swim from an offshore boat, or from neighboring Kalalau Beach (a quarter-mile swim).

1.Honokalani Beach, Wai'anapanapa State Park, Maui, Hawaii

unalu’u beach is the most famous black sand beach of Hawaii and is also known as just ‘Black Sand Beach’. Besides the obvious black sands, another reason for the popularity of this beach is that you can often see endangered Hawksbill turtles and green turtles basking in the sun on the beach!
