The Top Ten

Australia
Many different types of beautiful beaches can be found in Australia. Australia is a huge country with so much coastline. This means there are so many isolated, naturally beautiful and pristine beaches. There are also popular beaches closer to the cities like Bondi beach where you will often spot celebrities. Perhaps, the best aspect of Australian beaches is the sand. Its clean, soft, perfect for making sand sculptures, going barefoot on and lying down on. Or maybe its the waves that is most appealing. They make the beach fun, great for surfing and catching waves. There is a reason why the stereotypical Australian is a surfer. There are also tropical beaches in the north with white sand and beautiful coral. Think of the great barrier reef Fraser Island. There are many vast beaches in Australia with rolling sand dunes and a large majority of australians live very close to them. When my relatives came to Australia from mediterranean Europe they could not believe the difference. When they went back home to Europe they did not want to go to the beach there anymore. While you might laugh at the idea of the "Australian beach culture", it certainly exists and is something you will notice straight away when you visit.
Australia has a wide variety of beaches that are extremely beautiful and exciting. If I want to go to the beach I can go any time I want! The nearest beach is only about fifteen minutes away and since most of the population is on the coast if you want to visit, you will be guaranteed to be a short distance from multiple beaches. Australian soil is rich in iron, that's why our sand is gold. "We've golden soil and wealth for toil! " We are girt by sea and have amazing beaches for everyone to share because of our small population so they are NOT crowded at all! It's clean and clear and doesn't smell. We have coral reefs and long wave beaches! We have beaches in the city and beaches in small towns. It's majestic.
And for the person who said that you get eaten by sharks, that's not true. Shark attacks are very unlikely and are even more uncommon in East Australia.

Hands down Australia has the best beaches in the world. The fact that there are so many, most of which are untouched is a testament to how good our beaches are. Australia has such a small population that its not uncommon to have a world class beach all to yourself. Sydney alone has hundreds of beaches, most of which are better than some of the worlds so called "best". That's not to say that all of our beaches are better than every other countries but all up Australia wins by a mile. For example countries like Thailand and India are beautiful and have wonderful beaches but from my experience I found that the beaches were overcrowded and the water was actually quite disgusting at times. I lived in Hawaii for awhile and I can honestly say that, although amazing, the beaches were second to those in Australia.

2Greece
Greece has 6,000 islands and islets.. The waters in Greece are crystal clear, the colors can range from wine dark, to turquoise to emerald blue.. There are white, golden, red and black sand beaches.. Some are very shallow you can walk half a mile and still touch the ground.
Greece has the best beaches ever! And you should see the colour of the sea... so blue and clean and SPARKLY!
Something from an other planet. An amazing range of different kind of beaches. Thousands of islands, some are rocky, some full of green, isolated beaches... Surely something for everyone. The Greek coast line is the longest in the European union.

3Philippines
Philippines is the most beautiful country in the world, because its natural beauty is perfect. Visit Her and you will discover its mountainous land gifted with variety of animals and trees ; plus spring of water, like bay, beaches, coral reef shoal inhabited by thousand of marine life species. Philippines is a paradise because its land structure that surrounded by water is unequaled. The only problem is system of the government because the traditional corruption is out of control. These things cover the the natural beauty of the philippines from the eyes of the world.
Australia? US? Germany? Why are those countries even up there?! The Philippines has 7,000+ islands with beautiful, genuine white sand, crystal clear waters, and coral reefs that would make the other coral reefs look like fish crap. This country has to be at least in the top 5.

6Spain
Seriously? Spain has the most blue flags in the world, and beaches with waves as in Hawaii. Northern beaches for surfers, and southern beaches for swimming. You can see very good beaches in A Coruña, Santander, San Sebastián, Valencia, Barcelona, Baleares, Canarias, Andalucía in general...
And the reason for buildings in beaches is the importance of ports in an empire
Seriously France and... GERMANY? Above Spain? Whoever wrote this has never been to Spain, or Germany... Spain is the country with more number of blue flag beaches in the world. It should definitely be on the top 3. By the way, is there any 'real beach' in Germany?
Country with more blue flags in the world. Enough said.

7Italy
If you want crystal blue beaches you have to go Sardinia, its like the Caribbean in Europe. I don't understand how people like beaches with buildings right beside it... Like they do in Spain. You can't relax there with all the traffic noise and people. Beaches are supposed to be away from urban areas. The harder it is to get to the beach the better...
Italy is surrounded by warm mediterranean water, I just love the beaches, they are so perfect. I can't believe it's number 4...
Italian beaches are wonderful, there is so much diversity, we have rock beaches, white sand in Sardinia, some vulcanic black sand beaches around Naples...

Australia? Sure of you want to get eaten by sharks. Brazil is so much better times better.
Brazil should be number one! US has nothing, Greece has few, only competition for Brazil is Australia, but even they aren't better

The climate is great. If you are a beach person Srilanka would be the best place, they have the best beaches in the world for surfers with golden sand beaches and coral reefs (when I went there a giant tortoise came to beach and we even got to pet it) the beaches in the east of the country are wave less!, whale and dolphin watching are also popular in some seasons

20Turkey

21Finland
Finland has beautiful beaches. At sunset, the view is very nice.

Canada has beautiful beaches with sometimes even pink and purple sand! (This can be found in port Stanley by Lake Erie). Beautiful shells and stones can be found along the shores. The beaches are amazing!

In Canada, you will found over 1000 beaches which would definitely count any one's taste. Tobermory is on my top list.

24Great Britain
There are many beautiful beaches in the UK, Devon and Cornwall have beautiful white sand, as do the Channel Islands, looking further north there are miles of sand at beaches such as Southport, Barrow in Furness and Morecambe Bay. Surprisingly, Scotland has crystal white sand beaches and beautiful turquoise sea up north. Hawaii counts as the U.S. so I am sure Bermuda, British Caribbean Islands and Gibraltar in Southern Spain should get a mention!
