Last week you learned about the top beaches in the United States, now it is time to venture out to foreign lands and experience the exotic beaches that the world has to offer.
Anse Source d’Argent, Seychelles – With beautiful pale pink sand, clear blue waters, and rock formations that have been shaped by waves and time, Anse Source d’Argent found its way at the top of our list. You might think that this beach’s beauty is enough to land itself on the cover of a travel magazine… Well, Nat Geo agrees! National Geographic announced that Anse Source d’Argent is one of the most photographed beaches in the world. And don’t worry about any wavs as the shores and shallow waters are protected by a nearby reef. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the picturesque view.
Maldives – An Island Nation off of the coast of Sri Lanka and one of the lowest nations of the world, Maldives comes in on our list at #2. Enjoy the soft sandy beaches, coconut-bearing palm trees, and a diverse marine life that surrounds you. But remember, not all good things can last forever. Due to coral bleaching and rising sea levels, Maldives is expected to sink within the next 100 years. So don’t miss the opportunity to see one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Freedom Beach, Thailand – Privacy isn’t always so easy to find at a beach, but Freedom Beach in Thailand provides a much less congested, more relaxing location to spend your time. With swimming, snorkeling, and beach-side refreshments, you are able to have the vacation that you deserve! Its neighboring beach, Patong, can get a little crowded and a bit crazy with the large number of tourists present, so escape via water taxi to enjoy yourself and a much cleaner shore.
Matira Beach, Bora Bora – Bora Bora is located within the Society Islands archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. The island’s economy is driven by tourism, so you know that all of the locals want you to have a great time and come back soon with all of your friends. With a beach like Matira, that sounds like a great idea! You may recognize the island from Couples Retreat. Remember all of the over-the-water bungalows that were in the movie? Those were actually first produced in Bora Bora and are standard features for resorts. Cool, huh?
Boulders Beach, Cape Town, South Africa – Who says that you need to go to Antarctica to see penguins? Our #5, Boulders Beach in Cape Town offers the unique experience to see penguins in their natural habitat. Paired with a stunning scenery and beautiful boulders this destination is one to add to the bucket list.
