The Top Ten Famous Beaches Around The World Are:


You can always sunbathe on the beach, or you might want to snorkel in clear water near a coral reef filled with colorful fish. In addition, there are many resorts that offer sailing trips as well as diving excursions. With so many activities for tourists to do at this beautiful place, it’s no wonder the Maldives is one of the best destinations around! 

  • BALI

Beachside restaurants serve up fresh seafood dishes made from ingredients brought directly from local fishing villages; enjoy shopping along Jalan Kartika Plaza while gazing at picturesque views of Kuta Beach; wander through lush rice paddies dotted by small villages where life moves at a slower pace. 


The beaches in this Indian Ocean island nation are mostly on the country’s western coast, with only one of the–La Digue–on its eastern side. This is because most of the islands’ rain comes from that direction and there aren’t any rivers to speak of. But no matter what time you visit, you can expect spectacular scenery!

  • KAUAI 

Kauai’s Waimea Bay Beach has waves so large they were named “Jaws” by surfers who frequented them in the 1970s; it was known as one of Hawaii’s best-kept secrets until Hollywood movie mogul David Wolper featured it prominently in the 1983 film “North Shore,” which helped to catapult Waimea Bay Beach onto lists of must-see beaches. KAUAI’s Kalalau Beach also offers a world-class experience for those willing to make the trek, with its white sands and emerald waters providing an unforgettable view.

  • MAUI 

Maui is home to some of Hawaii’s most famous (and oftentimes crowded) beaches, including KAPALUA BEACH in Kapalua Resort and Kaanapali BEACH on West Maui. With soft sand that stretches as far as the eye can see, these are two beach destinations not to be missed! KAANAPALI’S BLACK ROCK has been voted one of America’s “Best Kitesurfing Spots” by Kiteboarding Magazine and the region has been ranked as one of North America’s top five kite-surfing destinations.


Located in the Caribbean, St. Lucia is a tropical paradise with many beautiful beaches to choose from! Pigeon Point Beach was voted “The Best Beach in the World!” according to Travel+Leisure magazine, so this might be an excellent destination for your next beach trip.

  • Fitzroy Island – Great Barrier Reef Fiji

Fiji is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places on earth. In this archipelago of islands, there is no shortage of truly stunning landscapes, but when it comes to beaches, nothing beats New Zealand’s Great Barrier Reef Fiji (GBRF). Located within easy reach of Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, GBRF is truly a Fiji beach bum’s paradise. There are miles and miles of pristine white sands to layout on all day long as you soak up the sun (or beat it back with a Fiji hat ). You can snorkel near any number of Fiji’s famous coral reefs or take one of Fiji island tours. Fiji beaches are some of the world’s best!

  • Bora Bora

Bora Bora is a Polynesian island which is located in the Leeward group of islands, part of the Society Islands archipelago. It’s a well-known tourist destination and resort which consists of a main volcanic island surrounded by a protective barrier reef. The interior was never completely surveyed prior to European occupation and is still very rugged and lightly populated.

The most popular activities on the island are scuba diving, snorkeling, and kitesurfing. You can also try jet skiing, fishing, and other activities such as exploring Mount Otemanu and Mount Pahia.

If you like hiking, then the Atimaono Trail is for you. The trial takes about 2 to 4 hours depending on your skills. But it is very rewarding; its lofty summits offer incredible views. It also takes you around ancient Tahitian temples and lovely valleys. The trail is very challenging because it’s quite dangerous in some parts.

Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific Ocean, has a fantastic turquoise lagoon filled with vibrant corals. Snorkeling and scuba diving are excellent ways to explore the lagoon. Expect to see turtles, rays, and colorful fish during your trip. When snorkeling makes sure to check out the Tiputa Pass and Maupiti Island where you will find the coral garden.

  • Tahiti

A tropical island in the South Pacific, Tahiti is a small paradise that has been featured in many dreamy movies and songs. Today, it attracts tourists from all over the world to enjoy its beauty and experience life on an exotic island.

You can explore the natural beauty of Tahiti by hiking to Aorai Mountain or just walking in Bougainville Park. You’ll feel like you’re on top of the world because at 3,000 feet elevation there are panoramic views that stretch for miles and include a glimpse into neighboring countries such as French Polynesia and New Caledonia.

  • Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands is an amazing destination for those who love the ocean and want to explore its beauty. The islands are home to some of the most breathtaking beaches, water activities, and wildlife in all of Latin America! Just a few popular attractions include snorkeling with sea lions or whale sharks; kayaking around natural swimming pools; scuba diving into sunken ships from World War II; exploring underwater life such as penguins-the only ones found on earth outside Antarctica.

The Galapagos Islands provide something for everyone interested in oceans: beautiful landscapes, stunning views at each turn – both above land and undersea-, excellent restaurants serving fresh seafood dishes straight outta’ Pacific waters (and plenty more!), lively nightlife scenes.
