Since Tripadvisor has launched their compilation of the world’s best beaches, I though I’d give my own list a go. These locations have been tried and tested by yours truly and come highly recommended.
8. Las Salinas Beach – Ibiza, Spain
We had to include some fun party beaches on the list, and Salinas is all the party and paella anyone could ask for. Hotties galore, slamming music, and a beautiful beach.
5. Ha Long Bay – Vietnam
Grab a Junk Boat and explore one of the worlds most beautiful Unesco Heritage sites. Ha Long Bay consists of around 1600 islands and islets, meaning you are spoiled for choice.
3. Playa Rincon – Dominican Republic
If you want a beautiful beach and lagoon all to yourself this is the place to go. Playa Rincon is difficult to get to, so those who make the effort are handsomely rewarded. Fun fact: Playa Rincon is also said to be Columbus’s entry point to Hispaniola.
2. Nungwi- Zanzibar, Tanzania
Having just returned from Tanzania, my experience at Nungwi was spectacular enough to bring it in at number two on my hot spots list. Hippies and chi chi beach bums flock to Zanzibars Nungwi beach for the clear waters and relaxing ambiance.
1. Flamenco Beach- Culebra, Puerto Rico
I love this place so much I’ve been four times already. The whole island of Culebra is riddled with beautiful beaches, phenomenal seafood, and the best star gazing you could ever hope for.
