I am a nature and animal lover. I am also very health conscious and love writing about them. Health and happiness is what I strive for all.

This is also the most expensive beach island.

The island has beautiful coral reefs, colorful fishes, stingrays, and other life forms, which are worth watching. The place has become a popular choice with celebrities and business tycoons, which has caused a price hike.

It's amazing that such a teeny speck of a Caribbean island, a mere 35 square miles, could have so much sand!

South beach

Most of the restaurants offer kids-friendly services, which include discounts, free gifts, and babysitting facilities.

Pink sand beach

Pink sand beach, Bahamas

Harbor Island, Bahamas, has pink sand beach which is located a mile away from Eleuthera Island in the Bahama Islands. It is known as 'Briland' with the localities and is only 3 miles long with half mile width. The island beach offers relaxing atmosphere where one can enjoy turquoise sea or stroll along the soft sand under swaying palm trees in gentle breeze.

The beach is pink because of the red coral in the area. Mixed with the white sand it appears pink. What was striking to us is the contrast with the deep blue sky and the green vegetation.

Plage de pampellone, St. Tropez,
Plage de pampellone, St. Tropez,

Plage de pampellone, St. Tropez, France

Decadent and trendy, Saint Tropez is one of the most famous beach spots in the world and the Plage de Pampellone is the best beach in Saint Tropez.

This historic nude beach is in a magnificent location and with busy and energetic cafes and sun worshippers on the white-sand shoreline, this is the place for a glamorous South of France beach holiday.

Ipanema beach
Ipanema beach

Ipanema beach, Brazil

“Tall and tan and young and lovely.” So goes “The Girl from Ipanema”, the famous ode to the bathing beauties (or garotas) who lounge and strut on this stunning stretch of sand in Rio de Janeiro. Even four decades after the song’s debut, trendsetting bikinis still set the standard here and the eye-candy remains second to none. The two-mile stretch of golden sand is no slouch either, as it’s edged by a groovy ‘60s mosaic boardwalk and anchored by twin mountain peaks at its western end.

Anse source beach, Seychelles
Anse source beach, Seychelles

Anse source beach, Seychelles

The archipelago of Seychelles, composed of more than 100 palm tree-studded islands in the midst of the Indian Ocean, is a mostly undiscovered destination for American travelers. Dedicated beachcombers who make the trek will, however, be rewarded with some of the most paradisical shores in the world, where beautiful secluded beaches and idyllic lagoons meet with unspoiled natural landscapes echoing with exotic bird songs – don’t miss picture-perfect Anse Source d’Argent, featuring fine pink sands; towering, weathered granite boulders; and giant, arching palm trees.

clifton beach
clifton beach

Clifton beach, Cape town

Arguably the best beach in the world. Water cold, weather hot, beautiful people very hot. The beaches are named Moses, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th from north to south. There are quite a lot of stairs that have to be dealt with to get down to the beaches (and naturally back up). If one is frail or has a bevy of whiny children then try Camps Bay beach a tiny bit further south.

While each of Clifton's beaches shine in their own right, it's Fourth Beach that really swings with sexy scenesters, for at Clifton, where Atlantic Ocean temperatures hover around frigid, you're there to see and be seen - not swim. In a sea of Armani bikinis and Prada sunglasses, lithe sunbathers can be found languidly tossing Frisbees or watching the passing yachts from their rented chairs.
