World's best beaches
There are many beautiful beaches in the world but it's hard to choose what's best for you.

This lens will take you to the shores of Australia, through the coasts of the Mediterranean towards the islands of the Caribbean.
We have chosen a dozen of the best beaches from the locations unknown by the majority of travelers even though they might be nearby. Have you ever been to any of these wonders of the Universe? We would be glad to hear your stories. See if you like them and post comments about our top list and your other favorite places.

Lanikai Beach, Hawaii
This Hawaiian beach is considered the heaven inside heaven, the dream of poets with its crystal clear calm waters and softest sand. Lanikai Beach has a tranquil atmosphere due to the offshore reef protecting it from waves and unwanted sea creatures. It's ideal for snorkeling enthusiasts and divers as well as beach dwellers with a great sense of a true relaxing holiday. Lanikai Beach takes the second place in our list.

Sardinia beach, Italy
It's a nice change to leave an already beautiful shore of the Italian mainland and taking a ferry from Civitavecchia (near Rome) makes the trip even more exciting. There are two nice destinations Olbia and Cagliari where the boat takes you. As you enter the port of Olbia you feel the big difference, especially in the early morning when the air has the flavor of an island of exceptional beauty. I wouldn't recommend visiting Sardinia in August as all the Italians flock to the beaches, the ferries are full and prices high.

Olu Deniz beach, Turkey
Turkey has indeed something to offer in our world's top beaches and Olu deniz for sure is not only the most attractive place for the locals. It's a blue lagoon separated by a small peninsula from the sea shaping up two fabulous stretches of sand. The bathing season never ends here with the temperatures comfortable for anyone throughout the year.

Tianya Haijiao beach, China
Tianya Haijiao is Chinese greatest beach located in Hainan Province. It's the south-most point of China washed by the South China Sea. The beach has rocks with strange roundish shapes which make you believe in a story behind this wonders of nature. The rocks are symbolic in Chinese ancient culture, some of them have signs and pictograms of poetry.

Paradis beach, Mauritius
The white coral sand of Paradis beach in Mauritius, calm azure water and a magnificent scenery with a mountain - all of these would be the descriptive features of any paradise place such as this one. The beach is not easy to get to if you are not a guest of the (expensive) hotel of the same name. You can still walk across a lagoon on a narrow strip of land during a tide and find yourself in heaven :)

La Digue Island, Seychelles - One of many beaches
Unbelievable landscapes and shores with dinosaurs looking gigantic rock formations make the island of La Digue one of the favorite places in the world for its super-exotic looking nature.
Foul Beach, Barbados
The name of this beach doesn't speak for itself and you can see why. Or may be its beauty is a magical trap and you will fail to leave this place? I haven't been here yet but getting closer as i am in the Caribbean right now, so stay connected i might get myself stuck on this beach... wait, and how would i update this lens from there? lol
Los Cabos beach, Mexico
This is what many people like the most, high rocks and little sandy beaches in-between. You can find this very patch of Rocks crushing this little peninsula between the cities of San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.

The best beach in Dominican Republic - Playa Grande, Cabrera, DR
Playa Grande is just amazing, a far away location from hustle, no hotels, supermarkets, bars and restaurants around, just a mile of soft sand and the nature of the Atlantic ocean with The Caribbean touch. You can see how Playa Grande looks like on the video below. Have i taken this video? The answer would be, - Yes, i did, standing right there filming and dropping the camera to jump in the ocean to swing on the waves :)

Here is another good beach. I recently came from Saona, the island of blue calm waters and true Caribbean feeling. This island can be reached by a boat, it takes about 30 minutes to get there, depending on the speed of your ride. There are tours to this island too which offer lunch on this beach as well.
