10 Must Visit Beaches Around the World
When there is sand under your feet, sky over your head and sun kissed shimmering water before your eyes, know that life is good. But why settle for good when life can be grand? Beaches are a thing of beauty; there is no doubt about that. Here are a few beaches around the world, no flowery words and adjectives prove sufficient to describe the divine creation of nature that they are.
- Grace Bay, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
Crystal clear water in all the shades of blue and turquoise and soft white sand are the features that make the Grace Bay Beach one of the best in the world.
- El Nido, Palawan, Philippines
This white sand beach serves as a gateway to the Bacuit archipelago, which are a group of islands. Lagoons, coral reefs and the sight of marine life through the transparent waters also invite tourists to come and awe at its beauty.
- Whitehaven Beach at Whitsunday Island National Park, Australia
98% silica is the reason for the white colour of this beach and the reason why visitors can walk on the beach barefoot even on a sunny day. Whitehaven has been awarded the tag of Queensland’s Cleanest Beach in a campaign launched in 2008 with the motive of promoting cleanliness. Small puddle like beaches across the white sand make it all the more fascinating.
- Ko Pha Nagn, Thailand
Apart from the scenery this island is famous for the ravishing monthly parties that are organised on the night of full moons.
- Hidden Beach, The Marieta Islands by Puerto, Vallarta, Mexico
Peeking through a burrow, this beach was a result of bombing experiments that were undertaken by the Mexican Government in the 1900s. The actual name of the Hidden Beach is Playa Del Amor.
- Rainbow Beach, Queensland, Australia
The name for this beach is derived from the rainbow coloured dunes that covers the area. The reason for these multi-coloured dunes is the presences of minerals such as monazite, zircon, rutile and Ilmenite, in them.
- El Castillo Tulum Beach, Mexico
The Caribbean Sea shares one of its shores with an ancient archaeological site in Mexico- El Castillo Tulum. The ruins of Tulum are situated at the edge of a cliff facing the beach. A rare combination of luxury and history, that calls for a unique experience.
So, Maldives is not a beach as such, it’s a country. More specifically, it is a composition of 26 carol atolls made up of many islands. Here’s the catch, though, since it’s surrounded by water all around, there is a beach at whatever direction you look.
- Honokalani Beach, Wai’anapanapa, State Park, Maui, HI
White soft sand is what comes to mind when spoken of beaches but behold this black beauty. Black sand, dark mysterious caves and pitch as black cliffs. There is no end to the list of activities that the tourists can enjoy at the Honokalani Beach.
- Mosquito Bay, Vieques, Puerto Rico
The brightest bioluminescent bay at the shores of Vieques, lights up whenever there is a friction caused in the waters. The reason for its neopn blue glow is the microorganism- dinoflagellate pyrodinium bahamense
