Let’s face it: beaches are the best. If one seriously wants to enjoy themselves whilst on vacation, they seriously need to take into consideration whether their desired location has a plethora of sandy coasts waiting to be explored. One travel agency has you covered.
Canadian online travel website Flight Network has consulted a wide range of journalists and travelers to compile a definitive list of 50 of the best beaches on the planet. Whether you’re going to sunbathe, swim in the sea, or surf, at least one of these beaches is going to be perfect for you.
At the top of the list, you will find the exquisite white sandy beach of Grace Bay. Turks and Caicos is a perfect example of the location blessed with pristine, untouched beaches, and Grace Bay is the very best. It is protected by a colorful reef, making it unpolluted and beautiful.
Its narrow runner-up happens to be in down under. Whitehaven Beach, Australia comes in at number two is a stunning sight, if you are prepared to take a helicopter to this remote location. This was followed by the Seychellois Anse Lazio, one of the most densely populated palm tree beaches in the world.
There were five criteria that Flight Network took into consideration when ranking these beaches: how untouched it was, the quality of its sand and water, its average temperature, how remote it is and how many days of sunshine it gets throughout the year.
