We’ve taken a look at 10 of the best beaches around the world to deliver some inspirations for beach lovers everywhere.


Grande Anse Beach, La Digue Island, Seychelles

  • Seen by many as the benchmark of what a beach should be

  • Must for surfers, waves can be strong

Rabbit Beach, Lampedusa, Islands of Sicily

  • Dazzling white cliffs, fluorescent blue waters and warm temperatures make this beach an ever popular destination
  • Fantastic destination for snorkelling as well as seeing protected turtles laying eggs and dolphins swimming out in the distance
  • Go early or late to avoid crowds

Grace Bay, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands

  • Turquoise waters with a white sand beach, make sure you stick around for the beautiful sunsets

  • Shaded areas fill up quickly so get there early

Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island, Australia

  • Award winning beach with over 7 kilometres of clear waters and pristine sands
  • Head to the northern end to see the stunning cove – as the tide shifts the sand and water it creates a beautiful fusion of colours
