Top 50 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World

Will everyone agree with our ranking, murmuring respectfully among themselves about how perfectly accurate every placement is?

Maybe not. This is the Internet.

But that’s why we’ve scoured the planet, demanded answers from our most well traveled friends, colleagues and cohorts, absorbed passionate pleas from readers, researched, investigated and examined the evidence then finally tipped the sand from our shoes, washed the brine from our eyes and put together a pretty good guide to the best beaches on the planet.

Now we turn it over to you. Consider this list a premise, a platform from which you can jump into a dazzling, turquoise ocean of “further recommendations.”

Enjoy Top 50 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World.
