It was not easy to try to reduce the most beautiful beach places in the world to 20 unequaled rows. Every corner of our astounding planet, from North America, where wide stretches of broad stretches along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, to the southern hemisphere, where the sand is more intimate and exotic, has an embarrassment of beautiful beaches. However, some do not forget a little more than others. Some are famous all over the world (appear in songs, movies and even diet), while others are of unknown gems. What unites them? This feeling of surprise when you start with slippers, throw the beach towel and think: “Now this is paradise.” Here is the list of the top 20 beaches in the world.
Camps Bay Beach – Cape Town, South Africa
For drama, this vast arc of sand in the Atlantic is difficult to overcome seven minutes from Cape Town. Supported by the Twelve Apostles rugged mountain range, Camps Bay is popular with young, young and successful swim, browse, drink and shop (there is also a palm grove), especially on weekends and during peak season. From November to January. Enjoy a cocktail at sunset here is a must, where restaurants and bars facing the west offer great views..
Horseshoe Bay Beach – Bermuda
It is necessary to walk on the famous shore of Horseshoe Bay, in the shape of half the Bermuda moon, or even on the slopes that rise above it. This stunning Southampton parish beach is ideal for enjoying sunbathing or a sprinkler (you can rent towels, skis and diving equipment). During the cold months of Bermuda (from November to March), Horseshoe Bay is still very popular as visitors take pictures of its pale pink sand and sip cocktails and snacks at the hotel’s cafeteria. One caveat: Wait for crowds when cruise ships are in port.
Makena Beach – Maui, Hawaii
Sometimes it’s worth driving a bit more along the way. In Maui, this means passing through the beaches of Kihei and Wailea, where the resorts are located, and heading towards the Makina Public Park. This stretch of gold sand, the largest stadium in Playa Maui, offers great views of the Caholwe and Molokini Crater. However, the unpredictable collapse on the coast can be dangerous, so be aware of warnings posted on rescue stations before deciding to swim. When the waves are high, set up a picnic and sit and watch the skateboarders.
Ipanema Beach – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro has two famous most beautiful beach places, Iapanema and Copacabana, but it is the first, held in the sexy Bossa Bossa of the 1960s “The Girl of Ipanema”, which captures visitors with its breathtaking scenery. The sand is a light golden color and the emerald tops that are observed for hours are known as “dos Hermanus”. Brazilians like to show their toned bodies, so they expect small swimwear and lots of suede. Be sure to leave the purses and valuables in the hotel safe: despite its beauty, it is known that the beaches of Rio are frequented by little thieves.
Pampelonne Beach – Saint-Tropez, France
Beach clubs, large yachts and beautiful bodies (from Brigitte Bardot to David Beckham) are synonymous with the most famous beaches in Saint-Tropez: put on the map by Bardot and her husband, director Roger Vadim in the 1955 film God Created Woman. What you would expect to find on the French Riviera, from striped umbrellas and from a chair to bikinis (the peaks are optional), is often here, as in extra codes, such as convertible sports cars, designer sunglasses and champagne on ice. If your wallet is able to handle it, start a little fun.
Trunk Bay Beach – St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
Being able to indulge in warm warm water, putting the mask and fins, diving, and really diving in the midst of an abundance of coral fish and tecnicolor, is a great attraction for any beach. The fact that this series of low-level coconut palm trees in St. John’s are among the most beautiful (and most photographed) places in the Caribbean. As part of the Virgin Islands National Park, Trunk Bay offers access to a 225-yard underwater course (equipment can be rented), but plans to visit early in the morning if you are looking for tranquility. This beach is famous for its excursions from nearby St. Thomas.
Whitehaven Beach – Queensland, Australia
When Oprah Winfrey and Australian chef Curtis Stone performed a beach barbecue during Australia’s 2011 Super Adventure, doing it along 4 kilometers of white silica sand on the Witsenday Islands in Queensland. It is accessible only by boat, water jet or helicopter, so the approach is part of the experience, and the view of this slim beach is protected by the forest along with Hill Inlet in the north, where the tide changes create huge sand art, Amazing definition.
Maya Bay Beach – Koh Phi Phi Leh, Thailand
If Maya Bay looks familiar, it is because he played a leading role in Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2000 film, The Beach. The reserve is reached at the end of a dramatic bay surrounded by 300-foot slopes on Koh Phi Phi Island in southern Thailand. It is accessible via a day trip (often in a traditional long-tailed wooden boat) from nearby Koh Phi Phi Don, Al-Fatihah of Sri Lanka. Everyone wants to see it, so Maya Bei is full of people. For the best photos (without crowds) visit early in the morning
