Best 7 Beaches in the World

I asked my readers to reveal me their favorite beaches. Here they are:

7. Australia

Cape Tribulation in Daintree National Park, Queensland. Far from any civilization, the only ways to get here are by a guided tour from Cairns or by car. Stay in an eco-lodge in the midst of the rainforest. [photo: Ian Mackenzie]


6. Brazil

Ipanema's Landscape
Rio de Janeiro’s Ipanema is famous for a lot more than just the song. The word “ipanema” comes from Tupi language and means a “stinky lake”, which couldn’t be further from the truth. [photo: alobos Life]
Boipeba Island, around 50 miles South of Salvador, is a dream destination for those seeking a secluded beach. Most of its 15 miles of coastline is pristine beaches. [photo: Danielle Pereira / Miradas]

5. Maldives

3. Philippines

Boracay Island
Small island of Boracay is an hour’s flight away from Manila. It’s been lately hit by a tourist tsunami as Asian travelers have found its beaches. Parties are held on the beaches in the evenings. [photo: Duncan Rawlinson /]

Malcapuya Island
Tiny Malcapuya Island is a little North of the much more famous Palawan. It’s mostly a day trip destination from Coron, but there are several huts on the beach that you can rent for overnight stays. [photo: Roslyn]

2. Greece

Halkidiki, Macedonia-Greece
Halkidiki Peninsula close to Thessaloniki is full of beaches. This is Kavourotripes, in the area of Sithonia, where the beaches are more secluded and nightlife not as vivid as in the nearby Kassandra. [photo: gichristof]
Alexandra Beach Bar and Bouka Bay
Zakynthos Island in Western Greek archipelago is a relaxed vacation destination with some nightlife and plenty of peace for families. Bouka Beach is 5 miles North of the town of Zakynthos and one of the island’s more quiet beaches. [photo: Robert Wallace]

1. Finland

Finland, why Finland? This was voted on the list by my Finnish readers who all love their cottages on islands and by the lakes, but you gotta admit that the land of 300 000 lakes and several archipelagos has lots to choose from.

  2. So, in India there is a island called the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Those set of islands have a beach called the Radhanagar beach. Check it out on Google. That beauty is just unimaginable :)
    We travelled there last December and can sure visit again. Serene and gorgeous!
