The Top 10 Best Beaches In The World 2018

Published

on

Start planning your tropical getaway now—these are the best island beaches in the world, bring you favorite travel buddy and let’s explore the best beaches worldwide now!

1. Dreamland Beach, Bali: 

This once-hidden cove located on the Bukit peninsula was first “discovered” around the 1970s and has since become a top destination for surfers thanks to its great shore breaks. Judging by this picture, I’ve already started packing my bags and heading off to there! So relaxing and the hot sand and the shore collabing together makes it a picturesque view! Though it has grown in popularity in the last 40 years and new resorts have cropped up, it still retains its hang-ten vibe with small shops and beach shack cafes like Kelly’s Warung, known for its fresh juices, wraps, and smoothies.

Where to stay: The Mulia & Mulia Villas in Nusa Dua.

2. Bathsheba Beach, Barbados: 

Rugged, wild, and untouched are just some of the words used to describe this shoreline, where both photographers and surfers flock to catch the best waves and watch the “Soup Bowl,” a name for when the waves crash into the white sand and huge boulders to create a scenic and foamy natural phenomenon. It’s less of a swimming locale, but you’ll have plenty of shots to post on Instagram. The scenery is indeed intoxicating!

Where to stay: Fairmont Royal Pavilion in Saint James.

3. Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands: 

Located on the western shore of the 75-square-mile island, the whole stretch of this 5.5 mile-long beach is public property, making it easy to stroll from hotel to hotel regardless of where you book an overnight. All in one afternoon, you can grab lunch at an ocean-side restaurant, stumble into a volleyball game with locals, take Jet Skis out further down the beach, and top it off with some snorkeling in Cemetery Reef, known for its rocky formations prime for sea life habitat. Isn’t that awesome?

Where to stay: The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

4. Harbour Island, Bahamas: 

Located off the northeast coast of Eleuthera Island and away from the buzz of other Bahamian beaches, families and couples alike can spend the day on pink sands only seeing a handful of other people. After basking in the sun and getting serenaded by the breeze rustling through the palm trees, visitors can pop into the town to roam down quaint Dunmore Street, dine on the fresh catch of the day at The Landing, and grab a sunset cocktail at Beyond the Reef.

Where to stay: Pink Sands.

5. Trunk Bay, St. John,USVI: 

Undeniably one of the most photographed beaches in the Caribbean, if not the world, Trunk Bay sits in the northwestern corner of the Virgin Islands National Park (it was donated to the park service by Laurence S. Rockefeller more than 50 years ago). Calm, clear water, and a 225-yard-long Underwater Trail for superb snorkeling are big draws, as are hiking trails up and into the surrounding greenery filled with the ruins of historic sugar cane plantations.

Where to stay: Caneel Bay, which boasts six of its own nearly-completely private beaches. The resort is currently undergoing renovations following the devastating hurricanes of September 2017.

6. Treasure Beach, Jamaica: 

The six-mile-long coastline is actually divided up into a number of coves, with four of them being open to the public. While you’ll be charmed by the sleepy fishing villages located at each of them, you can also enjoy some spectacular swimming and snorkeling along the untouched rock shorelines. Less of a tourist spot, the local community is made up of writers and artists creating an inviting cultural scene.

Where to stay: Jake’s Hotel.

7. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia: 

Matira is perhaps the most famous of Tahiti’s beaches, and for good reason: The mile-long stretch of silky, powder-white sand slopes gently into a shallow emerald lagoon, and is backed by a thick curtain of palms and tropical foliage. Added bonus: It’s one of the only public-access beaches in Bora Bora, so you won’t need to pay five-star resort prices to enjoy its beauty. Come early to stake out a spot.

Where to stay: St. Regis Bora Bora Resort.

8. El Nido, Palawan, Philippines: 

Surprisingly, Palawan remains one of the best ranked beaches worldwide because of its natural beauty and beautiful, colorful fish under the sea. El Nido alone is home to around 50 white sand beaches—it’s impossible to choose just one—all of which are set around dramatic limestone formations and boast the finest and whitest sand you’ll ever see. The water is so blindingly blue it makes the Caribbean Sea look murky in comparison. And the sunsets? Well, they’ll ruin you for life. Consider yourself warned.

Where to stay: El Nido Resorts – Pangulasian Island.

9. Palm Beach, Aruba: 

The two-mile-long strip on the northwest side of the island is filled with activities to keep you busy all day and night. Try your hand at parasailing or snorkeling before sitting down to enjoy a barefoot lunch at Pelican Pier Bar during the day; then, head to the nearby casinos, restaurants, and nightclubs at night to make your lazy day a bit more lively.

Where to stay: The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba.

10. Honokalani Beach, Wai’anapanapa State Park, Maui, Hawaii: 

With its jet-black shore, lapis lazuli waters, and thick, jungle-like foliage, Honokalani Beach is a photographer’s dream. Besides lying lazily on the “sand”—actually made up of of tiny lava pebbles—there’s plenty to do: you’ll find seaside lava tubes and sea caves carved into the lava cliffs along the shore. It’s wild, unspoiled Hawaii at its best, and a necessary stop en route to Hana.

Where to stay: Montage Kaplua Bay.
