10- Railay Beach Thailand

Top 10 Most Beautiful and Best Beaches In The World

Railay, also known as Rai Leh, is a large peninsula between the city of Krabi and Ao Nang in Thailand. It is accessible only by boat due to high limestone cliffs cutting off mainland access. These cliffs attract rock climbers from all over the world, but the area is also popular due to its beautiful beaches and quiet relaxing atmosphere.

Accommodation ranges from bungalows and medium-priced resorts in East Railay to a collection of luxury resorts focused on West Railay, though one, Rajavadee, spans both waterfronts and also has a beachfront restaurant at Ao Phra Nang. The four main areas of Railay consist of Phra Nang, West Railay, East Railay, and Ton Sai. Ton Sai caters to climbers and the backpacker set and is more rustic in character than the glitz of West Railay and the shops and restaurants of the East Railay boardwalk.

9- Seven Mile Beach, Cayman Islands

Seven Mile Beach, Cayman Islands

Seven Mile Beach is a slice of heaven in Grand Cayman! Depending on where you are along the beach, you have areas of gorgeous white sand for playing and swimming, rocky areas perfect for snorkeling, teeming with exotic fish, calm turquoise water, restaurants, condos and miles of uncrowded shorelines to walk and explore.

Seven Mile Beach (SMB) is a long crescent of coral-sand beach on the western end of Grand Cayman island. Seven Mile Beach is known for its beauty, recently receiving the honor of "The Caribbean's Best Beach" from Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine. It is public property (Because of the rule from the high tide down is public ) and one is able to walk the full length of the beach, regardless of where you are staying. The Seven Mile Beach is the most popular and most developed area of Grand Cayman.

It is home to the majority of the island's luxury resorts and hotels. Despite the name, a generous measurement puts the actual length at just a bit over 6.3 miles (10.1 km) long. A realistic length for the uninterrupted sandy beach is about 6 miles. The beach falls victim to annual erosion, which has reduced its size in some areas, and may have reduced its length at the ends. Like the rest of Grand Cayman, the development around the Seven Mile Beach was severely damaged in Hurricane Ivan in September 2004 but many condominiums & hotels are still running at full capacity.

6- Praia do sancho, Brazil

Praia do sancho, Brazil

Nestled on the small island of Fernando de Noronha — about an hour off the coast of Brazil — the remote Praia do Sancho is consistently voted one of the world’s best beaches. But while its beauty is easy to appreciate, the beach itself is hard to reach. You have to hike, scoot down a dark narrow tunnel and descend steep stairs to finally reach this pristine beach. Since it’s located in a national park, you also have to pay to access it. The palm-fringed cliffside, golden sands and blindingly-blue waters are worth every penny and every bit of the adventure, though.

3- Anse source d'argent beach

Anse source d'argent beach

Anse Source d’Argent, in the south-west of La Digue, has often been described as the most beautiful beach in the world, and it is certainly one of the Seychelles’ most famous attractions. The beautiful mix of turquoise water, golden sand, and impressive boulders makes it a unique prospect worldwide.

Access to Anse Source d’Argent is via the Union Estate, which charges 115 Rupees per person each day for access, however the outcome is well-worth the fee. Besides this initial entrance fee, access to the beach is easy thanks to a number of well-signposted paths.

One of the main reasons for the beach’s popularity, besides its astounding beauty, is its variety of activities. The shallow, clear water, as well as the coral reef protection, means the beach is a great spot for families, and is also perfect for swimming and snorkelling. That said, it can be difficult to swim here at low tide, as the water is extremely shallow, but at high tide, the water is deep enough to swim while still being shallow enough to be safe for most swimmers.

The protection provided to the beach by the coral reef ensures that the open ocean feels far away, so parents shouldn’t worry about their kids playing in the water. On top of that, the nearby restaurants and fruit stands mean you can easily spend a whole day here if you like, although those wanting the beach to themselves should arrive before 10.00.

As mentioned, the beach is also famous for having been used in a number of prominent photoshoots and films, including movies such as Emanuelle, Crusoe, and Castaway, as well as the famous Bacardi adverts of the 1990s.

Anse Source d’Argent is truly a must-see for all Seychelles holidaymakers, and especially for those staying on La Digue. The unique mixture of shallow water, pristine white sand, and impressive granite boulders make it a real treat, and one that visitors will remember for a long time.
