Best Beaches in the World
10. Uig Sands, Isle of Lewis, Scotland
Not a place you would expect to see in our list of Worlds most amazing beaches, but not all beaches need scorching weather to enjoy and explore the beauty within. This large, dramatic beach, 20 miles west of Stornoway on Lewis’s surf-battered Atlantic coast, is surrounded by dunes and grizzled mountains. The beach is famous for the discovery of a set of Viking chess pieces made from the husks of walrus teeth dating back to the 12th century. Grassy plains & flower meadows erupt into bloom in June and its long stretches of sand are a playground for kite-buggy enthusiasts.
9. Keem Bay, Achill Island, Ireland
Because of the stunning cliff-top vistas, the winding road to Keem Bay is well worth the effort. Although this quiet cove on Achill Island in County Mayo is generally unknown to visitors, it is a fantastic family beach because of its clear malachite seas and fine biscuit sand. For observing basking sharks, binoculars are suggested, and ice cream vans abound in the car park throughout the summer.

8. Benguerra Island, Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique
Benguerra is a protected Bazaruto Archipelago off the coast of southern Mozambique, with nacreous sandbars and slender flamingos navigating the canals with care. The fine sand is surrounded by a two-mile-long coral reef, while migratory humpback whales and enormous whale sharks pass majestically further out. The shot-silk seas are home to the largest dugong population in the western Indian Ocean, and inland you’ll find crocodiles and a variety of bird species. Best of all, because the island is a marine reserve, there are only a few hotels on the island, so once the day trippers leave, you’ll have the beach to yourself.
7. Champagne Beach, Espiritu Santo, Palawan, Philippines
Champagne Beach is a popular beach on Vanuatu’s Espiritu Santo island. The beach is famed for its clear blue waters and powdery white beaches, which are among the best in the South Pacific. Tourists and cruise ships from Australia frequently pass through. An absolutely stunning beach, getting its name from the volcanic activity below the water. Snorkelling is a must and reviewers have advised to swim to the left of the beach to see fish like Nemo in abundance. Just a 45 minute drive from Luganville.
6. Playa Paraiso, Cayo Largo del Sur, Cuba
Playa Paraiso which stretches across a small island off the southern coast of Cuba is still much the same as it would have been back when Columbus sailed to Cayo Largo in 1494! The flour like sand and crystal clear waters are as pristine as ever before with a fine offering of diving in all the Caribbean. Warm, calm waters are ideal for swimmers but without much shade, so to save on burning you will need to stay towards the west side of the beach.
5. Ora Beach, Maluku, Indonesia
Ora Beach is a small, remote beach on Maluku’s Seram Island. An island surrounded by tropical forest & crystal blue sea and lime stone cliffs. This is the place to go if you want to feel like you’re in Bora Bora without hurting the wallet. Ora Beach is tough to find, as are many other hidden gems & will take some effort. But you will be rewarded with crystal clear water, coral reefs, and mountains covered in tropical rainforest.
4. Hidden Beach, Palawan, Philippines
Not so hidden any longer but still one of the worlds best beaches in a pristine stunning location surrounded by limestone cliffs and soft white sand. Along with turquoise waters and a key like opening to reach a beautiful lagoon, this is one amazing beach to tick off your world beach bucket list

3. Honopu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii
The only legal way to get to distant Honopu is to swim from an offshore boat or a quarter-mile away from Kalalau Beach. The trip is cinematically worthwhile, though, because the cayenne-colored cliffs and smooth dunes of this remote location served as the setting for Raiders of the Lost Ark and King Kong. Because of its remote location, the valley is also considered mystical, and it once served as a burial cemetery for local chiefs.

2. Navagio Beach, Zakynthos, Greece
Navagio Beach, also known as Shipwreck Beach, is an exposed bay on the coast of Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands of Greece, sometimes referred to as “Smugglers Cove.” Agios Georgios was the original name for Navagio Beach. A stunning location that wouldn’t be out of place in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean!
We are down to the first spot in our list of most amazing beaches in the world. We thought about the top 3 and it was a very difficult decision, but for Worlds Best 4 Travel, we believe the worlds Best Beach is….
1. Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia
Australia’s famous Surfers Paradise Beach is located on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Swim and surf along this two-kilometer stretch of golden sand and rolling surf, which is patrolled by three lifeguard towers.
Many vacationers’ bucket lists include riding a wave here, and it’s simple to do with surfboard rentals and training, as well as beach breakers that span the length of the beach.
The beach is backed by a foredune with plenty of signed access ways from the esplanade to the sand, as well as lined in seating spots and barbecues with ocean views for those who just want to relax. With high-rise seaside hotels, outdoor cafes, and night markets, the surrounding foreshore sector is a hive of activity.
If you have never been to Surfers paradise then you will be in fo a shock. All I can say is, Meter Maids!! Golden bikini clad beautiful lades walking Surfers Paradise adding coins to motorists meters to avoid hefty fines. A novel way to help the visiting tourist and one catchy eye opener!
