Santorini (also known as Thira) is spectacularly loctaed on the edge of an inactiive volcano. Many believe that in this place started the legend about Atlantis. Along with Mykonos, Santorini is one of the most expensive islands in Greece, but exceptional towns of Fira and Oia are truly phenomenal and unique. Thanks to the volcanic soil most beaches - Perissa and Karman are most familiar with - have a hot black sand / gravel, and the water is clear and clean.
One of the most interesting is the narrow Red Beach (Red Beach), with a small red sand partially covered with wooden shavings that keep it cool, crystal water and rocks that offer little action for snorkel divers.
6. Mexico - Tulum beach
This place is one of the first recorded summer resorts in Central America. The Mayans wisely had chosen this piece of coast as a resort.

7. Brazil - Copacabana Beach
The most famous beach in Brazil, and certainly one of the most famous in the world is the Copacabana beach. Copacabana is located on the eastern coast of Brazil and took full advantage of the fantastic weather conditions throughout the year, one of the reasons why millions of tourists visit this beach every year.
Copacabana beach looks endlessly with its 4 km length. At both ends of the beach are the old forts, now tourist attractions, Fort Copacabana on the south side, built in the 1914, and Posto Seis and Fort Duque de Caxias at the northern end, built back in the 1779. Entire length of Copacabana promenade is filled with attractive hotels, restaurants, bars and night clubs, which are well known by many tourists around the world.
8. Bermuda - Horseshoe Bay
The most expensive place for beach is right here in Bermuda. Thousands of tourists visit this amazing place each year, either in search of adventure or inner peace. Crystal clear water of the Atlantic Ocean and pink sand make this beach what many others do not.
However, despite its quiet appearance in the water is hidden dangerous sea current, which is the reason why rescuers work here from May to October, from early morning until late evening. On this beach is almost always a big crowd, but you can "squeeze" in a small cove on the western part, where there aren't so many people. The water is shallow and protected, and this bay makes an ideal place for children.
