Top 10 Best Beaches in the World

Where do you think is the best place to enjoy the sun and to have some fun?

The Top Ten

1 Bora Bora (French Polynesia)

Bora Bora is one of the few places on earth that everyone hopes to witness in their lifetime and once you see it, you are forever enamored.

Undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific, Bora Bora is French Polynesia's leading lady. Her beauty is unrivaled and her fame, unwavering.

Are you a beach lover? On the hunt for finding the best beaches in the world?
Bora Bora and the other islands of Tahiti have some of the best beaches. It is one of the reasons why I love Bora Bora and her sister islands.

Bora Bora beaches are definitely some of the best beaches in the world. Looking around at the white sand and beautiful turquoise lagoon, with Mt Otemanu as a backdrop, is like swimming in a screen saver.

Never seen anything like it before

2 Boracay (Philippines) Boracay (Philippines) Boracay is a small island in the Philippines located approximately 315 kilometres south of Manila and 2 kilometres off the northwest tip of Panay Island in Western Visayas region of the Philippines.

This is an amazing beach I love coming here so much to do and so much to see

Filipino squad where you at?

I have been to Boracay a couple of times. I keep coming back because the place is just amazing with its powdery white sand, great sunsets, and cheap beer. Wow! I miss it already.

Boracay is the best beach in the world. It has the finest and whitest sand. It has other features other than swimming. Plenty of restaurants, shops, party houses, hotels, tattoo shops, diving and snorkelling spots, banana boat ride, reef walking, etc. This place is amazing, exiting, adventurous, and romantic.

12 Weymouth Beach (United Kingdom)
13 Nosy Iranja (Madagascar)
14 Cavalaire-sur-Mer, Provence (France)
15 Bondi (Australia)

Bondi is the best! All Aussies know what makes a good beach, and bondi ticks all the boxes! It has beautiful clear water. Huge waves, but not huge enough to scare people. And it has the best trained lifeguards in the world. The sand isn't dirty like American beaches, and its always swarming with people. If you are Australian, or a surfer or beach lover from another country, you'll know what I'm talking about!

LOL OBVIOUSLY NOBODY ELSE HERE HAS BEEN THERE! I mean boracay? wtf is that? go to bondi and I bet you won't be able to honestly say it's not the best beach you've been to. - zip983

I love this beach its awesome I always go to bondi every summer - decorulez97

16 Destin (Florida, USA)

I love Destin. Good seafood, beautiful sand and beautiful water. - littlestpetpet41813

Go here almost every year for vacation - mtndewlord

Florida is know for beaches, and while most of the state is a peninsula, the best beaches are on the panhandle. Destin beach is so beautiful and amazing, it’s almost unreal. It’s like an American cancun, but safer, less tourists and the sand is even whiter. Fun fact, the sand in destin originated in the Appalachian mountains, but with rivers being created the sand drifted on to Florida’s gulf shores.

I live here and the sand is like. Sugar! Its made of quarts and it's so soft. The wateris emerald and awesk. E
