35+ Most Beautiful Beaches in the World to Visit

Forgive us if we can’t help thinking about the most beautiful beaches in the world! Beaches where we can squish our toes in the soft sand and breathe in the salty sea air.

Warm, silky water rolls up ever so gently into the sweet curve of a bay palm tree for shade. We’ve checked out many of the world’s prettiest beaches. The following 35+ beaches rank among the best.

Lover’s Beach, Cabo San Lucas

We could walk from Lover’s Beach to Divorce Beach, then scurry through the Arch and back around the rocks to Lover’s Beach.


One of the top white sand beaches in the world. Incredibly wide, the  family-friendly beach invites picnicking, building sand castles, playing volleyball and feeding the sea gulls.

Siesta Key Beach, Florida


Shell Beach, St. Barts

Shell Beach is littered with zillions of tiny shells. They’re so small though that you can walk on the beach barefoot without hurting your tootsies.

Zlatni Rat Beach, Croatia

Zlatni Rat is very close to the village of Bol, which has many little seaside restaurants and cafés.


Railay Beach, Thailand

Rock climbing enthusiasts love scaling the dramatic cliff formations. Beach babes, however, are content to laze about and soak in the stunning scenery.


Glass Beach, California

The site was once a garbage dump, filled with broken bottles. But all those broken bottle bits are now a sea of colorful smooth glass pieces, mixed in with pebbles on the beach.
