1. Whitehaven Beach. Whitsunday Island, Australia

This 7km long beach is only accessible by boat. It is the most photographed beach in Australia, due to its white sands and the crystal clear aqua waters. In 2010, CNN named this beach ‘The World’s Top Eco-Friendly Beach’. Also, in 2008, this beach was awarded Queensland’s Cleanest Beach.

2. Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach. Maui, Hawaii.

This curious beach was formed by waves crashing against volcanic rocks decades after decades. You will be able to see bridges made of natural stone or amazing caves. But if you are planning to visit it, you should better do it during the summer months, when the swell is soft and there is low tide.

3. Grand Anse Beach. La Digue, Seychelles.

It is one of the most photographed beaches in the world. The sands of the beach sparkle against into the towering granite boulders. The waters are quite shallow, and they are also protected from the ocean’s waves by a reef. If you want to feel like in a movie set, you have to go!

4. Vaadhoo Island Beaches. Raa Atoll, Maldives.

The magic water of the beaches in Vaadhoo Island seem to mirror the stars. This effect is due to marine microbes called phytoplankton, which bioluminesce creating brilliant blue glow. This phenomenon makes the shore look like the outer space.

    Amazing !!!

  12. Hace 3 años tuve la suerte de estar en seychelles y fui hasta la isla de la digue!! Lo cierto es que la playa que sale en la foto es genial pero aconsejo ir por la mañana! Por la tarde y a causa de la luz del sol el agua se vuelve verde y pierde el color tan bonito que tiene al principio por la mañana
