There is a definite reason that Fiji is at the top of the list. Even if you have never been there, you must have read about the magical beaches that it has or heard it from someone who has just returned from Fiji and doesn’t seem to shut up about it. Everyone that you encounter who has ever been to Fiji will be like this. Just ask them what it like was and then watch as they give you a seemingly impossible scenario of everything that you can find and do in Fiji. Fiji has not 1, not 2, but 333 islands that have some of the best resorts in the world. The water is clear and sparkling and the beaches boast of stretches of white and clear sand.
Following close behind Fiji, the next spot is for Tahiti. If you love food, especially gourmet French cuisines then Tahiti must be on your to-do list. In fact, it is better if you start preparing right now. Tahiti boasts of lush jungles, luxurious resorts and, beaches that will take your breath away. There are parts of Tahiti that bring in a lot of crowds, so if you want some peace and quiet, head on to the smaller section of Tahiti called Tahiti It.

Although it is just 6 miles long and 2 miles wide, it boasts of some of the most astounding and visually stimulating beaches ever. Not enough? You can also visit the lush, green jungles as well as classy resorts that offer overwater bungalows. If you are looking for a sunbath or you just want to walk along the seashore holding your partner’s hands, then head over to Matira Beach.
The Maldives is made up of hundreds of small islands and each one seems more beautiful than the last. You can really feel that you can get lost in the Maldives and never want to come back.

We all know about Hawaii and most of us have already been here. But if you want some privacy, head to Maui. You can have a choice between big or small beaches that are adult as well as family-friendly. Make sure that you don’t miss the black sand shores at the Waianapanapa State Park.
Kauai is popular for its adventure-packed activities that draw a constant crowd of action-loving enthusiasts. Whether you want to just relax or have an adrenaline-pumping adventure, you can have it all and more in Kauai. Just make sure that you follow the lifeguard’s instructions as some of the waters can be pretty hard for swimmers.
If you had any idea what Phuket had to offer you would travel hundreds of miles to visit it at least once, just like all the other tourists who do the same. The natural wonders that you will find here will blow your mind away. These include Patong, Karon, and Kamala beaches. These have the most stunning teal water that you have ever seen. You can either enjoy the beach or take a boat and explore the water. Another beach that you most certainly do not want to miss is the Nai Ham Beach that is situated in the south of Phuket.
9- Railay Beach
Ever been to Thailand? No? Well if you had heard of Railay Beach, you would have gone by now. It is near the Krabi province and the Andaman Sea. It is not just home to the most amazing sandy beaches but also some of the best cliffs that a person could want to climb.

10- Costa Rica
Costa Rica doesn’t only have a heap of shorelines, it has the natural and vibrant flora to beautify the place and give you an aesthetically appealing visual that you won’t find anywhere else. No matter which beach you choose, you will find either mountain peaks or forests around it, making it the perfect setting. If it is sunbathing and swimming that you are after, head to Nosara Beach, Manuel Antonio National Park or Guanacaste.
