Nothing beats spending a day out in the sun and listening to nothing but the crashing of waves and a bird or two chirping around. In this post, we’ll be looking at 5 of the most beautiful beaches in the World.
Bora Bora is a small island in French Polynesia starting off this strong list. It’s surrounded by smaller islets and a turquoise lagoon protected by coral reefs. It has become one of the top destinations even for people who aren’t into beaches that much, and for a good reason.
Bora Bora has luxurious resorts all over the island, with rooms and bungalows perched over the water on stilts. It also has some of the best wildlife, with tropical-colored fishes and giant manta rays swimming through their coral reefs. Aside from casual swimming and the beach, scuba diving is also one of the prime reasons to visit the island.
After an island-wide renovation during the pandemic, Boracay has once again opened its doors to tourists all over the World. It’s only an hour ride via plane and a 10-minute ferry ride from the airport. Featuring crystal clear waters, pure white sand, amazing weather, and miles of palm trees alongside hotels and resorts, Boracay is everything you can think of if you’re looking for a developed beach destination to visit.
Boracay also has one of the best nightlife experiences with its plethora of bars, resorts, and restaurants if that’s something you’re looking for. This paradise in the Philippines is definitely worth the visit.
Railay Beach, Thailand
Isolated from the rest of mainland Thailand, Railay Beach boasts pristine waters, smooth sand, and a coastline of mountains with tropical forest vibes. It’s located in Krabi province in Southern Thailand, and it’s separated from the mainland thanks to its looming cliffs.
Without the noise of cars, Railay beach is truly paradise in Thailand. Aside from swimming and enjoying the shore, Railay beach also offers hiking, rock climbing, and kayak opportunities.
Whitehaven Beach, Australia
Heralded as one of the World’s best beaches, this unadulterated paradise from down under is located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. It takes pride in itself as one of the top eco-friendly beaches in the World.
Whitehaven beach spans seven kilometers of turquoise waters and a white sand beach that’s 98% pure white silica. This award-winning beach is accessible by boat, plane, and helicopter.
Bingin Beach, Bali, Indonesia
Known as one of the most challenging surfing destinations in the World, Bingin Beach has established itself as a quintessential spot for surfers all over the World. It isn’t a typical beach in terms of convenience because of the uneven rocks and the overall difficult terrain, but it’s definitely part of what makes it beautiful.
Surrounded by mountains, cliffs, and rocky terrain, this surf village is quite the destination. Swimming, snorkeling, shopping, and eating, are also worth the challenging terrain.
