The 5 most beautiful beaches in the world

Are you dreaming of fine white sand, palm trees and turquoise water? Here is our countdown of the 5 most beautiful beaches in the world.

5. Long Beach, British Columbia (Canada)

It is fair to say that tropical landscapes have nothing on the wild beauty of Long Beach.

Located between Tofino and Ucluelet in Pacific Rim National Park on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Long Beach stands apart with its 16 km of beach. A surfing paradise, Long Beach is also a popular spot to visit every spring and summer to watch some of the 20,000 grey whales that pass by on their seasonal migration.

4. Baía do Sancho, Fernando de Noronha (Brazil)

Baío Do Sancho is located on the island of Fernando de Noronha, a volcanic archipelago on the north coast of Brazil.

Its emerald waters and white sand are surrounded by lush vegetation and 75-metre reefs.

You can only access this hidden jewel by boat, but it is worth the trip to dive or sunbathe in paradise.

3. Camps Bay, Cape Town (South Africa)

While we often dream of visiting isolated and inaccessible beaches, Camps Bay is the perfect example of an urban beach. 

It is a bit cold to swim in those Atlantic Ocean waves, but Camps Bay promises a simply magnificent beach with a view of the Twelve Apostles Mountains and Table Mountain in the background.

People looking to experience breathtaking sunsets gather there and enjoy a picnic while waiting for the celestial performance.

2. Polihale Beach, Hawaii (United States)

At 27 km long, Polihale Beach is by far the longest beach in the state of Hawaii.

Located on the island of Kauai and accessible by a dirt road, its wild beauty remains preserved.  

The waves are sometimes strong for swimming, but long walks along the beach and catching the latest sunset are just as spectacular.

1. Anse Source d’Argent (Seychelles)

Worthy of a postcard, Anse Source d’Argent is one of the most photographed beaches in the world!

Its waters sparkle like a dazzling diamond and giant granite boulders mark their place along the fine white sand.

People visit for long sunbathing sessions or to observe the giant tortoises that wander… and also to be able to boast they have really seen a piece of heaven on earth.
