Where to Travel to Visit the World’s Best Beaches 2018

Is there anything better than a beach vacation? Endless warm, sunny days with pristine waters kissing sandy shores. To find the best ones around the world FlightNetwork tapped the travel expertise of more than 1,200 journalists, editors, bloggers, and agencies from around the world to identify the best. Here are the world’s top 10 beaches ranked. Discover why you should travel there next.

 

No. 1

Shipwreck Beach

Zakynthos, Greece

Located in a beautiful secluded cove surrounded by towering golden cliffs, visitors will only be able to reach this Greek island paradise by boat. Spend your day swimming in turquoise waters while soaking in the breathtaking surroundings.

 

No. 2

Whitehaven Beach

Queensland, Australia

Accessible only by helicopter or seaplane, this stunning beach is located on Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands. Discover piercing-white sand played against the fluorescent-green backdrop of the tropical forest on the island’s mountains — an absolutely stunning sight.

 

No. 3

Hidden Beach

El Nido, Philippines

You can distinguish this postcard-perfect beach from the rest by one magnificent trait — those unmistakable, protruding limestone cliffs. Shooting out of the turquoise-blue lagoon straight to the sky, they draw your eyes away from the spectacular reefs and palm-lined shores.

 

No. 4

Praia do Sancho

Pernambuco, Brazil

Remote Praia do Sancho — located an hour off the coast of Brazil — is consistently voted one of the world’s best beaches. Enjoy palm-fringed cliffside, golden sands and blindingly-blue waters when you get there.

 

No. 5

Tulum Beach

Quintana Roo, Mexico

Enjoy stunning white sands and bright teal waters that combine to create a beach that leaves an indelible imprint on travelers. The “beach strip,” which runs the length of the beach, offers a collection of bohemian-esque restaurants and accommodations, ensuring you can always be within a few steps of the powder like sand and sparkling water Tulum is known for.

 

No. 6

Grace Bay

Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos

Grace Bay is one of the most famous beaches in the world for good reason. A rainbow-colored reef located just off shore is home to thousands of sea animals and is perfect for diving and snorkeling.

 

No. 7

Seven Mile Beach

Negril, Jamaica

Lazy palm trees tilted at 30-degree angles almost brush the opaque sand, while turquoise water gently streams over the beach. The island’s vegetation separates the beach from the city, creating a remote atmosphere despite it being easily accessed.

 

No. 8

Anse Source D’Argent

La Digue Island, Seychelles

Anse Source D’Argent in the Seychelles is the world’s most photographed beach. Boulder-adorned shores, ribbons of shimmering sand and aquamarine water are all candy in the sought-after spot.

 

No. 9

Maya Bay

Phi Phi, Thailand

Take a long boat out for the day to enjoy turquoise waters lapping against pillow-like sands. Mountains rise above the spot that is teaming with tropical fish perfect for viewing while you’re snorkeling.

 

No. 10

Varadero Beach

Cuba

Fine, white sand overflows into bubbling blue water and the pina coladas are never ending. Bodysurf stunning waves, frothing at the top and propelling you towards adventure, or read a book on the beach while glimpsing the perfect horizon.
